DENVER | 1650 Wewatta Street | 230 FT (70 M) | 21 FLOORS

Not too much has been going on in Denver recently that is of a significant height, though we have a ton of infill in the mid-rise range. However, this proposal for the Union Station redevelopment (more information HERE) is the first of several towers that will be popping up in the area (images courtesty of Denver Cityscape:





1650 Wewatta is a 21-story building with 300 apartments, 4 floor of parking (1 underground level), and 6,000 sq ft of ground floor retail. It is being developed by Holland Partners and the architect is Shears Adkins + Rockmore. The project is currently scheduled to break ground in Q42012.

I'm not trying bash or anything, but could Denver get a propsal that DOES NOT have a flat or flat-ish roof. Denver's skyline, while decent and dense, really needs some pop to it and the Four Seasons disappointed.

Anyways, decent looking propsal, sans roof.

Impossible. That would go against everything that makes Denver Denver. We like our skyscraper roofs flat, our beer local, and our women blond, ass-less, and tit-less.

Final renderings from DenverInfill. Looks like they made it more seamless between the floors and took the red out.

That's a nice building. I really like the color and that roof line is nice.

Site prep has begun on 1650 Wewatta. A trailer and construction equipment has moved on site!!

(The site is just to the left of the currently under-construction train canopy)

Great to see some more infill in Denver, particularly in this neighborhood. But, why the hell are they putting a three level parking podium directly next to the (amazing looking) transit center they're building? Seems counter productive.

This is 288 units and about 260 parking spaces per DenverInfill....better than some cities require, but isn't this meant to trend toward transit users and pedestrians?

Still, good project.

We're on a huge infill build right now (approx. 20 projects mostly ranging from 5-10 stories within a 1.5 mile radius of central downtown) so it's fantastic.. As far as the parking podium, that's a good question my friend. We all wonder these things sometimes... There are a lot of ridiculous parking requirements (some projects are going 1.5:1 / 1.25:1 parking ratios), and depending on who you are, some say our transit system 'isn't quite there yet' to be totally car-less.

Borrowing images posted in the Mountain West sub-forum here.

The first was captured from http://www.earthcam.com/client/kiewit/ Always a great place to see the latest state of the project.
