Construction Updates

Union Station Update

November 8, 2017 2

I had the opportunity to get out this past weekend when the weather was warm and capture some construction photos of the projects taking shape in Denver’s Union Station neighborhood. Specially, I focused on snapping some photos of The Grand (1709 Chestnut), The Coloradan,  1999 Chestnut, and 16 Chestnut.

To begin let’s take a look at the progress of 16 Chestnut, a 250 foot-tall office building. The 19-story building will include 420,000 square feet of space. Davita, a healthcare organization that specializes in kidney treatments has been announced as the anchor tenant. Davita will lease 265,000 square feet of space. Gensler is the Architecture firm that designed 16 Chestnut.

Next is a look at The Grand which is taking shape at 1709 Chestnut.

The Grand is comprised of a 24-story building and a 12-story building. By my count, the 24-story portion of the development is currently at 23 floors, so one more floor to go before it tops off.

Between these two structures 500 apartment units and 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space will be created. The residences will be offered in one and two bedroom options. Structured parking is incorporated into 1709 Chestnut totaling 500 spaces. Shorenstein is the developer of this project.

Denver-based Shears Adkins Rockmore is the architecture firm that designed this development.

Next is a look at the progress of the Coloradan,  a 342-unit condo project adjacent to Denver’s Union Station. This will become the first for-sale residential project in the Union Station neighborhood. The one-acre site where The Coloradan is under construction is 1750 Wewatta Street.

Here are a couple photos of the hotel project taking shape at 1999 Chestnut. This project will become a 12-story Hilton Garden Inn. A Firehouse that was constructed in 1883 still remains on the site and is being incorporated into the project.
