Denver to get micro apartment project

Hotel VQ is becoming Turntable Studios.

The Nichols Partnership is redeveloping a former hotel next to Sports Authority Field into Denver's first micro apartment project.

Designed by JG Johnson Architects, Turntable Studios will have 179 units and is expected to be completed by the third quarter. Each unit will have a kitchen, full bathroom, city or mountain views, Juliet balconies and multiple built-in components to maximize the functionality and efficiency of the space. There will be 168 studios at 330 square feet, four one-bedroom units at 685 square feet and seven two-bedroom units at 820 square feet. Personal storage units also will be available. 

"While Denver has consistently been ranked as one of the top destination cities for Millennials since 2009, we have a disconnect with housing affordability for these young professionals," says Randy Nichols, principal at The Nichols Partnership. "We intend to change that at Turntable Studios with our efficiently designed studio apartments that will rent for less than $1,000 a month."

On-site amenities include more than 150 parking spaces, a swimming pool, workout facility, community room, a penthouse city-view lounge and outdoor green space. To increase access to alternate modes of transportation, there will be an on-site car-sharing program, as well as bike parking.

"Turntable Studios is perfectly located to access LoDo, Highlands, Platte Valley and the Platte River/Cherry Creek bike trails," Nichols says. "Proximity to the Sports Authority Field at Mile High light-rail station and immediate access to I-25 conveniently connect Turntable Studios to everything Denver has to offer."
