DENVER, CO - Wood Partners is now leasing all 280 apartments at Alta City House, a five-story mid-rise apartment community in the heart of Denver's Union Station/Riverfront Park redevelopment. The $62 million luxury development at 1801 Chestnut St. is complete and already 78 percent leased.
Wood Partners developed Alta City House along with East West Partners, the developer of Riverfront Park and the Union Station neighborhood, and USAA Real Estate Company.
Wood Residential Services, Wood Partners property management division, is managing the property.
"Alta City House is a high-profile project just west of Union Station, at the hub of the Denver metro area's light rail system," said Tim McEntee, director for Wood Partners' Rocky Mountains region. "Overall, we're very pleased with how well it has been received. It's an exciting, high-profile project, and we really amped up the amenities."
Alta City House, which qualified for LEED Gold in the U.S. Green Building Council's certification program, includes one- two- and three-bedroom apartments in a five-story wrap structure with a garage on slightly less than three acres. One-bedroom units range from 645 to 825 square feet; two-bedroom units from 991 to 1,227 square feet; and three-bedroom townhomes are 1,300 square feet. The community includes 1.4 parking spaces for every unit, a much higher ratio than comparable nearby communities.
Residents at Alta City House will have access to a wine locker, two-story fitness center, cyber café, two-story club room, game room, a large roof deck with a year-round outdoor kitchen facility and a striking view of Coors Field. There are two large outdoor courtyards, one with a large pool area and an outdoor fireplace. Wood Partners expects the pool and landscaping to be completed by March.
Wood Partners and East West Partners previously collaborated on the highly successful Glass House high-rise condominium project in Riverfront Park in 2007. In addition, Wood Partners long envisioned the new Alta City House, its third development in the Denver area, as a complementary development. Alta Aspen Grove, Wood Partners' second Denver project, is the first stick-frame market-rate apartment community to be certified under LEED for Homes in Colorado.
Located on a full block between 18th and 19th streets and Chestnut Street, Alta City House is at the base of the pedestrian bridge on 18th Street, within 100 feet of the new light rail station just west of Union Station and just blocks from the new train to Denver International Airport, projected for completion in 2016. The new community is just a few short blocks from the Platte River Greenway's access to more than 120 miles of bike trails.
Wood Partners is leading the construction effort. Paul T. Bergner Associates is the architect; Harris Kocher Smith is the civil engineer; and Norris Design is the landscape architect and land planner for Alta City House.
