Golden Triangle in renderings: 6 planned projects in the Denver neighborhood between Speer, Lincoln and ColfaxMarch 1, 2017 byAdrian D. Garcia forDenverite
The recently formed Golden Triangle Partnership wants to turn the neighborhood that houses the Denver Art Museum, Denver Public Library and Civic Center Park into an “international destination for art and culture.”
Part of that plan includes adding taller, denser developments to the community, said Leslie Horna, executive director of the partnership. Six projects are currently planned or under construction in Golden Triangle that could bring hundreds of new residents and visitors to the area.
The Golden Triangle Partnership officially formed in January to combine the functions of the former registered neighborhood organization and the museum district in the area, Horna said. The nonprofit is tasked with marketing and advocating for the area, adding and maintaining infrastructure and developing a membership model.
“The Golden Triangle is a little more affluent and upscale area of Denver,” said Spencer Stuart Jr., Legacy Partners’ senior managing director for Colorado and Texas.
Legacy Partners and others are developing in the area because they can command higher prices for rentals and housing units and meet the demand of people who want to be near downtown Denver.
Horna and the partnership hope eclectic retailers and restaurants will follow the new residents coming in.
Legacy Partners is building the seven-story, 322-unit apartment building Legacy at Speer at the southeast corner of Speer Boulevard and West 14th Avenue.
The California-headquartered development company hopes to open the roughly $63 million building during early 2018, said Spencer Stuart Jr., Legacy Partners’ senior managing director for Colorado and Texas.
Legacy at Speer will have mostly one and two bedrooms. The average rent prices for the apartments will be around $2,300, Stuart said.[ See All News ]
