Why the recent growth in Denver’s population? It’s easy to understand with close access to the mountains, walkability, breweries galore, sun-saturated days, and all around amazing weather. These perks keep our population rising at a faster rate than cities of a similar size like Austin or Portland. As the growth continues in the urban areas of Denver, the demand for affordable residential units is inherent to the cities evolution.
One of these new developments is located within Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood at 39th and Tennyson. OZ has designed a five-story residential building with 81 affordable units and plenty of amenities to boot. The building is overall 91,528 square feet offering a variety of apartment types – micro units, studios, and one-bedroom spaces with an additional 2.5 levels of underground parking.
The clubroom, located at the corner of 39th and Tennyson, will cater to the community showcasing local artists in rotating exhibitions and adding a staple neighborhood spot for First Friday art walks. A roof-top deck with views of downtown and the Front Range provides a fire-pit and communal areas, perfect for mingling and relaxing. Adding to the list of amenities – a large fitness center, a dog wash, bike storage, and bike & ski tuning stations are valuable and practical for Colorado’s active residents.
Tenants have access to views up and down the Tennyson Main Street corridor due to the buildings unique design as it wraps along one corner. The exterior also uses green metal accent panels, decorative CMU, and aesthetic masonry adding texture with an urban flare. The pedestrian level is welcoming to heavy foot-traffic with a large canopy and terracing steps up to the clubroom.
Tennyson Place is the type of urban residential living newcomers and long-time Denver-ites are in need of. Unlike many run-of-the-mill apartment buildings, it is both affordable and appealing with a sleek design. With the amenities offered, it’s comparable to the luxury condominium market yet at a price that the incoming wave of millennials can afford. 39th and Tennyson Place is the perfect solution to the heavy demand of residential spaces and provides a design blueprint as Denver evolves to a major city that embraces the changing demographic.
