From RiNo to to Sloan’s Lake and everywhere in between, Denver’s condo landscape is evolving quickly with a number of new developments hitting the market in the coming months and years.
Denver’s condo growth is in part fueled by the 2017 builder defect law that made it more difficult for homeowner associations to file lawsuits against the builder of their development. In exchange, more developers are pursuing condo projects to address the demand for condo living, which is expected to grow significantly in Denver as the city continues to mature.
Here are two Denver condo developments to keep an eye on later this year:
The Edge LoHi
Alpine Investments is the developer behind The Edge LoHi, a 44-unit, five-story condo project being constructed at 17th and Central streets in the Lower Highland neighborhood.
The development, which should open by the end of 2019, offers a range of affordable units, from one-bedrooms in the high $400,000s all the way to penthouses for $2 million.
For those prices, expect the highest of quality when it comes to design, amenities and security. Each unit includes Viking or Bosch stainless steel appliances, wide-plank hardwood floors, 8-foot walnut entry door, solid-surface quartz countertops and a private patio.
And of course, in LoHi, there are plenty of great restaurants to enjoy, like Root Down and Colt and Gray.
Denver’s newest condo development is so much more than just luxury living on Sloan’s Lake. It’s about a connection to nature — and an incredible amenity package.
Located on Sloan’s Lake, 4200 17th St., Lakehouse focuses on wellness through a slew of offerings and programs and has the amenities to back it up. From a state-of-the-art air filtration system to help improve respiratory and cardiovascular function — especially at 5,280 feet up! — to an onsite urban farm where you and your neighbors can grow fresh organic vegetables and herbs, Lakehouse has been designed to support a healthy body, mind and spirit throughout the year.
This 196-unit condo development also features a wide range of units, from 1-bedroom and 1-bedroom plus a den, to large penthouses and row homes. And you could call it home by the end of this year.
And here are four Denver condo projects still in the early stages of development, but will likely soon grace out city’s skyline:
The next phase of Denver’s condo landscape includes towering residential buildings, like Amacon’s Block 176 at 519 18th St. — site of the old Shelby’s Bar & Grill. Plans submitted to the city call for two towers — one topping out at 39 stories, the other 32 — that hold 461 total units, which will make it the second largest condo development in the city.
Ubuntu Partners Real Estate, of Denver, is also proposing a two-tower condominium project that would feature 314 units at 838 Park Avenue West. The project is still in its early planning stages, but the developer hopes to build units that sell for between $365,000 and $575,000.
There are actually a few condo projects popping up in RiNo, including Flora, a 12-story, 92-unit community at 3500 Chestnut Place. The project, estimated for completion in 2021, will also include 16,600 square feet of commercial space.
The River North Art District (RiNo) is undoubtedly one of the coolest neighborhoods in Denver and developers have decided it’s time for some for-sale products to hit the market there.
One of the more unique projects on the horizon is a 26-unit boutique condo project at 2750 Blake St. The development pushes the boundaries of modern design using glass and timber as the main ingredients and will certainly be a head-turner once it’s built.
Denver’s own Formative — which is also behind the World Trade Center project in RiNo — is developing the project.
Who’s going to want to live here? Any and all employees who work near the bustling 38th and Blake RTD station would likely be interested. And Denver condo buyers who simply want to live in one of the hippest neighborhoods in the city.
As of now, it’s unclear when the project will break ground.
