New Apartment Building Planned for Denver’s Golden Triangle Neighborhood | Subscriber Content


A Denver-based investment firm this week unveiled plans for another large-scale apartment building in the Golden Triangle neighborhood south of downtown.

There he joins a sea of ​​apartments planned in the wake of the pandemic, as more than a thousand new apartments are already expected to change the cityscape over the next few years.

Trailbreak Partners has announced plans to construct an 18-story, 320-unit mixed-use apartment building at 8th Avenue and Lincoln Street. The 37,000 square foot site currently houses Low Down Brewery and Kitchen.

“We’ve identified it as a really attractive location for a premium product,” Vice President Ethan Argov said from the company’s offices in Uptown.

Although Trailbreak calls the building’s units “luxury at market price” apartments, Argov said the details will allow for economies of scale to keep final prices for some apartments lower. Those prices have not been announced, he said.

A 5,000-foot ground-floor retail component could certainly incorporate a restaurant, Argov said, pointing to the brewery currently around the corner. But Trailbreak is also envisioning some sort of coworking space where tenants could find work-from-home capabilities.

“Working from home is easy in a single-family home, but in an apartment you might want more space,” he said.

The project, currently in design, is progressing through the eligibility process and will head for Denver’s Design Advisory Board review in mid-October.

“The intention is to feel very open and welcoming to the public,” Argov said of the design.

Project architect Hord Copland Macht incorporated elements to resonate with both the Golden Triangle and its Museum District to the north, as well as the historic Capitol Hill district to the east, he said. he declares.

Offerings will include one- and two-bedroom luxury units up to 1,200 square feet on upper floors, but also more affordable one-bedroom units, including 500-foot units that Argov calls “junior- one-bedrooms”, designed as a more attractive alternative. to a studio.

Upper floors, Argov said, will offer views from Pikes to Longs-Peak, while all residents will view the Front Range from a variety of terraces, including a 2-story rooftop lounge, seventh-floor pool deck floor and an additional terrace wrapping the fifth floor along E. 8th Avenue. Plans include a 324-space garage.

Numerous other large-scale new apartment projects have been announced for the Golden Triangle over the past year, including five sites at W. 11th Avenue and Bannock Street, W. 11th and Cherokee, W. 12th and Delaware, W. 12th and Elati, and W. 14th and Fox.

Argov says the building will come in at around 200 feet high and meet a view corridor requirement. The local yard was under contract in May and has yet to close. Argov said the city and the Golden Triangle community have responded positively to the construction project.

“It’s not a sloppy, half-thought-out project,” he said. “It really fits the context of the neighborhood.”

The company hopes to begin construction in the second quarter of 2023, with completion two years later.

Trailbreak Partners also has multi-family projects underway at W. 32nd Avenue and Eliot Street in Denver’s Highland neighborhood, and at Sheridan Station along the W Line light rail.
