Plans are well underway for the construction of a 17-story mixed-use structure that will go up in Denver’s historic and increasingly popular Golden Triangle neighborhood.
Concept plans for Evans East show a 315,000 square foot structure that will go up just to the east of the more than century-old, three-story Evans School at 1115 Acoma Street.
Plans were announced late last year to transform that former school into a mixed-use space. As part of that deal, Lennar Multifamily Communities purchased the larger parcel containing the school for $18 million.
The company subsequently sold the school for $11 million, while keeping the rest of the site to develop the new mixed-use project.
Lennar, which owns four apartment complexes in metro Denver, began work building a separate 17-story mixed-use structure on the site late last year.
To be designed by the Denver-based Davis Partnership Architects, the planned second structure, with three hundred residential units, will have an amenity deck on the 16th floor and below-level parking, with retail space planned for the building’s ground floor.
The Golden Triangle neighborhood is graced by a series of late 19th century Victorian homes. Median home prices in the neighborhood are now nearing the $1 million mark.
