Golden Triangle Rising

Denver, Colorado has consistently been one of the fastest growing US cities in recent years. Colorado is keeping pace with its capital city, also ranking as one of the fastest growing states in the nation. Not surprisingly, Denver saw a 20 percent growth in construction starts in 2015. According to Dodge Data & Analytics, apartments and single family homes are driving the boom, accounting for nearly 70 percent of new construction. A Page multifamily project recently came online in a highly desirable area that only had one other residential highrise with rental units - also a Page project.

The Golden Triangle Arts District is a tremendously popular area of Denver for living, working and playing. It boasts many civic institutions such as the Denver Art Museum, the largest art museum between Kansas City and the West Coast, the Colorado State Capitol Building, the Central Library and the Fillmore Auditorium music venue. Civic Center Park is a two-block oasis and other recreational options include the fitness trail along Cherry Creek. After work, hundreds of people, some on foot, head home to Page multifamily residential projects Acoma and the newly opened Joule Denver, also known as 1000 Speer.

The Joule Denver residential tower, located at the intersection of Cherokee Street, 10th Avenue and Speer Boulevard, marks a prominent gateway to the Golden Triangle. In keeping with the high standard of urban architecture employed on recent projects in the District, this 16-story building reflects a blend of modern design with traditional Denver architectural materials. Also in keeping with the region’s emphasis on sustainability, the project is seeking LEED certification. It provides 224 for-rent apartments, ranging from efficient studios to larger three-bedroom units. The Joule also includes townhouse-style units with individual entries on Cherokee Street. 

The Acoma residential tower, also 16 stories, was designed to blend in comfortably with the surrounding neighborhood and arts district. Like the exterior, the extensive public spaces located throughout the interior project a strong, vibrant energy while still using materials to reflect the Colorado setting. The 220 units were designed to appeal to urban and single professionals and baby boomers. To address the individuality of the residents, 80 different unit types were designed. This helps to differentiate certain units and to allow for flexibility in rental rates.

In 2015, Page was ranked among the top 35 national Building Design + Construction Multifamily Giant architecture firms. To see additional examples of our work, visit our representative Housing / Hospitality portfolio.
