Emerson Lofts is first of several infill projects for Fulenwider

Leasing has begun at Emerson Lofts, a 42-unit apartment building in the heart of Governor’s Park and Eighth Avenue and Emerson Street'

Designed by Chris Fulenwider of CF Studio Architecture + Development, the project features two-story, loft-style one- and two-bedroom apartments with 15-foot ceiling heights and extensive green features. So far, 26 units have been leased.

"When initially designing the building, we wanted it to have a neighborhood feel, making sure the building fit with the rhythm of Emerson and the more commercial feel of Eighth," Fulenwider says. "On Emerson, the building meets the street with porches in the same manner as the Denver squares that line that street.  Then on Eighth, we have a more vertical, rowhouse feel with stoops that also creates an outdoor public private transition or defensible space."

Emerson Lofts was co-developed by L.C. Fulenwider Inc. and CF Studio Architecture + Development. It’s the first of several infill projects planned by the two companies as they expand their portfolio in established urban neighborhoods in Denver.

L.C. Fulenwider has been involved in the Denver real estate market for 109 years. 

"We want to make Denver a better place to live and work by utilizing responsible urban design," Fulenwider says.
"Emerson Lofts is a great example of turning a vacant lot into a vibrant and cohesive project in one of Denver’s storied neighborhoods."
