Architect Eric Bottenhorn of Crane Architecture explains the design of The Colewood.
“With the well-established fabric of the Tennyson corridor, it’s important for the building to appreciate its rich context. To that end, we felt it important to establish a strong base, relating to the scale of adjacent buildings. Above this base, we’ve stepped back at the upper levels, allowing the upper volume to read as a secondary form. The material selections, window pattern, and hung balconies, relate to the historic context, while the transition details and the way in which the materials are assembled, allow Colewood to be of its time. This should be a complimentary addition to an already vibrant streetscape,” said Bottenhorn.
Millennials are expected to be the primary demographic, but a variety of age groups are anticipated to call this development home.
Riverpoint Partners closed on the property in February of 2015.
The area of Tennyson Street between 38th Avenue and 46th Avenue has become a trendy area with several bars, restaurants and new multifamily developments taking shape in recent years.
The 203-unit Decatur Point apartment project in Denver’s Jefferson Park neighborhood at 27th Avenue and Decatur Street is also a River Point Partners and Crane Architecture designed development.
