Elevation Capital Partners (“ECP”) announced plans to build Ivy—a new 26-unit condo building in the LoHi neighborhood of Denver at 1908 W 33rd Ave. Units are projected to be priced from the low $300,000s to $750,000s.
“When this opportunity presented itself, we knew we wanted to create something unique,” said Bryan Fitzgerald, Principal of ECP. “But we also wanted to create something that would enhance the neighborhood, be built to last and something we could be proud of for decades to come. We purposefully partnered with Craine Architecture and Hyder Construction to fulfill that mission. Craine’s timeless aesthetic is evident in the design; and on this scale no one in town has more for-sale condo experience than Hyder. We’ve got a really great team assembled.”
LoHi Condos
The five-story building will have parking on grade level and four levels of residential units above. Ivy residences will consist of a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units as well as four penthouse condos with views in all directions. Ceiling heights will be between nine and ten feet.
PorchLight Real Estate Group is marketing the project which is expected to break ground in May of 2018 and is slated to be complete in the second quarter of 2019.

Denver Photographs
Downtown Denver Photos

The last few weeks I have had a chance to sneak out and capture photos of Downtown Denver and the Denver Skyline.  Take a look at the below photos and I hope you enjoy reviewing my recent photos of Denver. Some of you may have heard of Kim Allen, he is a Denver-based photographer and is known for his unique photos of Denver during the 1980s. He focused his attention on capturing the vacant and deteriorating buildings of Lower Downtown Denver before the LoDo renaissance of the 1990s. To learn more about Mr. Allen and his photos, I invite you to take a look the interview I posted where he answered questions about his thoughts on Denver and his photographs: The man behind the Denver Photo Archives Long story short, Mr Allen and I have stayed in touch. Recently we met up to take some photos. Below are a couple photos I took that day. Justin Martin Photography Justin Martin Photography Denver Skyline   **All of my images are copyrighted.

Construction Updates
Union Station Update
November 8, 2017 at 1:51 am 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. Davita Denver Davita Denver Denver Union Station Downtown Denver 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.

This vantage point of Denver's Union Station neighborhood has changed dramatically in recent years. Denver construction 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.
