The project kicks off next spring with Central Park Station One, a 190,000-square-foot Class AA mixed-use office building, as well as a 300-unit multifamily rental project, a 120-unit condominium project and 60,000 square feet of retail space, all integrated around a public plaza. Forest City’s Denver regional office, Forest City Stapleton, selected NKF’s Vice Chairman Tim Harrington, Executive Managing Directors Mike Wafer, SIOR, and Alan Polacsek, and Associate Eddie Kane to handle the leasing and marketing of Central Park Station One. “Central Park Station One satisfies a need for attainable Class AA space for corporate, office and campus users,” commented Harrington. “Further, Forest City Stapleton’s ongoing intent to deliver the ultimate business-lifestyle community is evident in features that include outdoor collaboration space, an expansive public plaza, terraces, balconies and a rooftop deck.” This development will take shape steps from the Central Park Station RTD A-line platform, at the corner of E. 37th Place and Uinta Street. Stapleton Stapleton The masterplan for Forest City Stapleton’s Central Park Station TOD includes 4 million square feet over 70 total acres, with office, residential, and retail components including over 1,000 units of multifamily rental housing product, 400 condominium units and a 120-room hotel.

It’s bigger than you thought and more connected than you imagined,” he said. Stapleton Renderings courtesy KTGY Architecture + Planning

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."

Denver Skyline Diamond Hill

Here are a few recent photos I captured of the Denver Skyline from Diamond Hill. The Denver skyline sure has evolved in recent months as The Confluence has reached its full-height and the 1144 Fifteenth Street. If you look closely you can also see 1776 Curtis rising between its neighbors. Construction cranes pepper the skyline the Union Station area as well.
