SkyHouse Denver reaches milestone with topping out

SkyHouse Denver has reached a new milestone with the topping out of the 354-unit apartment building on the corner of Broadway and 18th Avenue in Denver's Uptown neighborhood.

The topping out signals that the 26-story  building is halfway to completion.

"With this milestone, we are pleased to be that much closer to offering residents the opportunity to be among the first to live in this world-class building located in the heart of the Uptown neighborhood," says Jim Borders, president of Novare Group, which is developing the project. "Batson-Cook Construction and Swinerton Builders are working carefully and methodically to deliver a high-quality high-rise community, and we are excited to celebrate the topping out with them and the highly skilled construction workers making this a reality."

In addition to the apartments, ranging from studios to two-bedroom units, the mixed-use project  includes 6,900 square feet of street-level retail space. The top floor of the building will include a club room, swimming pool and fitness center. Other amenities include vehicle-charging stations, bike storage and maintenance areas, a dog-walk area and dog-washing station. The building is being built to Energy Star standards.

The building, designed by Atlanta-based Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart and Associates, is targeting professionals who want to live in urban centers close to public transportation, employment centers and cultural institutions. The leasing center will open next spring, and the project is expected to be delivered in August.
