Lenny Taub is bullish on the Arts District on Santa Fe.
“I just envision this neighborhood growing rapidly in the near future,” he said.
Originally from New York, Taub — the head of First Stone Development — has completed or is currently building townhome projects in Denver’s West Highland, Sloan’s Lake and Berkeley neighborhoods. And now he’s finalized his plans for a site he bought last year in the 600 block of Santa Fe Drive in Lincoln Park.
Taub is proposing a five-story condominium building, with 117 units and about 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. He said retail in the area is “way underserved,” and hopes to attract a couple restaurants.
