The 2020 Lawrence apartment building
celebrates its grand opening May 15.
Developed by Zocalo Community Development
, the 10-story building at 20th and Lawrence streets in Denver's Ballpark neighborhood offers residents a rooftop health center overlooking the mountains and furnished with state-of-the-art fitness equipment; a rooftop pet exercise area featuring artificial grass; a lobby-level demonstration kitchen and communal living reoom; and a rooftopo lounge with hot tub, outdoor kitchen and a fire pit.
Zocalo is working on getting a restaurant for a portion of the 9,000 square feet of street-level retail space.
The 231 units at 2020 Lawrence range from 475-square-foot studios to nearly 1,200-square-foot two-bedroom apartments and rent for between $1,025 and $2,305 a month.
Most apartments offer some type of outdoor space and all feature European-style kitchens with quartz countertops and washers and dryers.
The project is LEED Gold registered and will be one of the greenest apartment buildings in the country. Features include Energy Star-rated appliances, flooring and other finishes made of recycled and locally sourced materials and high-efficiency water fixtures, which use 34 percent less water than standard products. The building also will offer recycling on every floor, as well as a composting program.
Overall, 2020 Lawrence residents are expected to spend 50 percent less on tehir utility bills than they would living in a similar non-LEED-certified building.
