A groundbreaking celebration was held at 17th Ave. and Raleigh Street in Denver to kick off construction of Lakehouse, a 12-story condominium project. NAVA Real Estate Development is the developer of the project. Lakehouse will include 206 units. The development is located just south of Sloans Lake on the former site of St. Anthony Hospital.
Fireworks went off as members of the development team and representatives from the City of Denver broke ground on Lakehouse.
Condominiums range in size from 675 square feet to 2,285 square feet, with one, two and three bedroom options, and the rowhomes are two bedrooms, ranging in size from 1,300 square feet to 2,473 square feet.

NAVA Real Estate Development was founded in 2013 by NAVA principals Trevor Hines and Brian Levitt.
“The groundbreaking is the moment when Lakehouse leaves the realm of the conceptual, it’s no longer a plan, it is no longer on paper, and it becomes a tangible reality,” stated Hines while addressing the crowd at the groundbreaking ceremony. “Lakehouse is going to be a place that is unlike anything else available in Denver today. It offers amenities that cannot be found, architecture that advances far beyond the standard fare, and even the best that is being built.”

The units will contain open-air balconies, chef-inspired kitchens with Italian cabinetry and five-piece master baths.
