As of December 2017, there were 29 multifamily residential projects underway in and around Downtown Denver for a total of just over 6,500 units, according to the DenverInfill.com blog.
In a 1.5-mile radius from the D and F Tower on the 16th Street Mall at Arapahoe, numerous neighborhoods are bustling with developments, including Lower Highland, River North, Curtis Park, Five Points, Uptown, Capitol Hill and others.
The tallest project is The Quincy at 1776 Curtis with 29 floors. It’s set to open in February. But the one with the most units — 508 — is The Grand at 1777 Chestnut Pl. near Union Station. It has a 12-story brick and a 24-story mostly glass tower. It also will open in 2018, with no month set as yet.
The newest project is the 233-unit Camden RiNo bounded by 32nd and 33rd and Walnut and Larimer streets in River North. Another new project is Champa Flats, 169 units of affordable rental apartments in downtown’s Arapahoe Square district at 2250 Champa St.
If it feels like development in downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods has been buzzing at full speed for years, you’re not mistaken. Sixty residential projects that added 11,793 units have been completed since 2010. And with another 10 projects for just over 3,000 units proposed, the buzzing won’t stop any time soon.
