is building a 302-unit apartment complex in Denver’s Uptown neighborhood.
One City Block
, between 18th and 19th avenues and Logan and Pennsylvania streets, will consist of four buildings around a central courtyard and include 9,800 square feet of retail space. It is slated to be complete by early 2014.
RedPeak purchased the property in 2006 from the Catholic Archdiocese, which operated schools on the site for over 100 years.
"It’s a landmark site," says Evan Lichtenfels, RedPeak’s development director. "We’ve created separate buildings with different architectural design so it looks as if it were built over time. We want it to tie into the existing fabric of the neighborhood."
Units range from studios that lease for $1,100 a month to two-bedrooms that lease for $2,000 a month. Amenities include a large community room, game room with cyber cafe, yoga room and rooftop decks.
"We designed the amenities to be geared toward millennials and the Gen Y group moving to Denver," Lichtenfels says. "This millennial group is really socially active and as rather than entertaining in their units, they’re more likely to hang out in the community spaces."
The project is just a block from Benedict Park and walking distance to numerous restaurants and bars. It’s about halfway between Denver’s central business district and the Exempla Hospital redevelopment.
"It’s very convenient for future hospital employees," Lichtenfels says. "The neighborhood has a great history and great urban fabric."
