I saw that too. It will be the first of hopefully many tower cranes at the Union Station site over the next several years.

I walked by Union Station and the Millenium Bridge on Sunday - trying to burn into my mind the "before sight" of open land infront of the station - Soon it will all be built up and crowded with people!

18th and Arapahoe

Must have missed this, but does anyone know what's going on with the Skyline Apartments at 18th and Arapahoe? Looks like a massive renovation (although the outside of the building, alas, will likely remain ugly).

Who wants to be embarassed? I am going through, sorting, deleting, and generally archiving an old external hard drive so I can switch my whole life to Carbonite online backup...

Anyways. I apparently saved a photo thread that Eric/Zephyr posted from a Denver forum meet in May 2004. Yikes.

Poking sticks? Big sticks or little sticks? Wooden sticks or metal sticks? Motorized sticks?

Surveyors, maybe?

LOL, they were wooden sticks. They were probably a few feet long I reckon. No motorized sticks. Motorized sticks?!?

Couldnt see a company name on the truck they were in, so not sure. They were spaced about 20 feet apart looks like.

Surveyors then. The sticks are called "lath."

(Re: motorized sticks, haha, I thought you might have seen them potholing or taking soil samples... soils testing isn't usually at the surface, they go deeper.)

business owners in the area have been told to expect construction to start in august for the senior living development. I work with the owners of the cleaners next door and they got a sweet deal on rent for the inconvenience due to the future construction..

Yeah, does anyone have a rendering or site plan that reflects the redesigned project?

No rendering, but an article in this weeks Denver Business Journal states that it will be 5 stories and include 205 units. Balfour is still the developer.

Also, a construction trailer is now on the Cadence Apartments site and some of the asphalt has been torn up. At least a start!

I'm a little lost. Are you guys saying that this is what is getting redesigned? The same block where DownhomeDenver saw guys poking the ground with sticks? Since when was this a senior living development?

No - I was referring to the Senior Citizen development on 15th and Little Raven - just down the street. Sorry about that..

Though it appears that two substantial developments will be underway along RiverFront around the same time later this summer.

^ I remember that project. It came around in the first boom back in 2006-7. It looked like a giant square block row house straight out of Paris. I can't find the old rendering but it didn't look bad. However, I believe the old one was eight stories. Five still isn't bad though.

Does anyone know as part of this building's construction whether or not they will keep that old structure on the site? I think the old plan called for it to be renovated into a small lounge or restaurant. I hope they do save it. It's a unique little building and it's a miracle it's lasted this long given the no man's land the area used to be with all the rail yard tracks and train structures. I would love to see it become a small lounge bar with a courtyard and trees, which in turn is surrounded by the new senior structure. It would make for a perfect European-style, U-shaped public courtyard.
