Bristlecone Construction will break ground May 30 on The Edge, a 40-unit condominium building at 1735 Central St. in Denver’s Lower Highland neighborhood.
The building, which will be constructed of steel and concrete, will have a dog spa, storage units, bike storage and repair room, a lobby lounge with a fireplace and coffee bar and two levels of secured parking with dedicated parking spaces.
"We're seeing what happens when you introduce a terrific new development in one of the best neighborhoods in the city and then allow people to select their home and lock in their price for as little as 5 percent down," says Stan Kniss, managing broker of Slate Real Estate Advisors, which is listing the condos. "In just a few short weeks, we're already roughly 30 percent sold out."
The steel and concrete construction allows for higher 9-foot ceilings and 8-foot doors. It also provides superior sound protection compared with a wood-frame building. The concrete regulates heating and cooling for greater energy efficiency and prevents mold and termite issues, meaning fewer chemicals are needed in construction.
The living rooms in the units, which range in price from the low $400,000s to $1.75 million, have wide-plank oak flooring; built-in gas fireplaces; and unobstructed views of the Denver skyline through 8-foot acoustically engineered windows. Kitchens have Bosch stainless steel appliance packages that include French door refrigerators, freezers, gas ranges, dishwashers and built-in microwaves; solid quartz countertops; porcelain backsplashes; and solid-core shaker-style cabinets. The bathrooms have frameless glass shower enclosures; quartz vanity countertops; and large-format porcelain tile floors.
All units have private outdoor balconies or patios.
