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 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.

Lakehouse Sloans Lake 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. Lakehouse Sloans Lake A diorama of Lakehouse is on display inside the the on-site sales center at 17th Ave. and Raleigh st. 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." Lakehouse Denver Trevor Hines pictured above addresses the crowd at the groundbreaking celebration. Lakehouse is being designed by RNL Design, with some collaboration with Munoz + Albin Architecture & Planning. The general contractor is GH Phipps.

The units will contain open-air balconies, chef-inspired kitchens with Italian cabinetry and five-piece master baths. Below-grade parking will included in the building. Denver City Council President Albus Brooks spoke at today's ceremony. "I want to tell Trevor and Brian and NAVA thank you for one of the few condo developments in the city of Denver," said Brooks.

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.
