1420 Wynkoop Back on Track
Following the success of Unico Properties‘ Circa building located at 16th and Platte in Lower Highland, plans for Unico’s proposed development 1420 Wynkoop Street building appear to be back on track following a period of derailment.
Plans for the 8-story mixed-use development were submitted by OZ Architecture to the Lower Downtown Design Review Board in September 2019 and received full approval for mass, form, and context. The project now awaits final design approval.
The development will be approximately 215,000 square feet in total and include three levels of underground parking, a retail/office ground floor element, four levels of core and shell office space, three levels of residential units, two residential penthouses and a residential rooftop amenity deck area.
According to Denver’s Community Planning and Development website, a landmark review is required for this property due to its location within the boundaries of a designated Landmark District. An SUDP Review is also required for this property due to floodplain proximity.
Unico also converted 1430 Wynkoop to a modern office building in the early 2000s. Located in the part of LoDo known as “Warehouse Row,” 1430 Wynkoop is one of the oldest remaining warehouses on Warehouse Row. Interiors were renovated to Class-A level office space featuring exposed brick and timber, new finishes, and upgraded common areas. The four-story brick and stone office building is listed as a contributing structure to the Lower Downtown National Register Historic District.
Unico owns and manages nearly 18 million square feet of office, multifamily, and mixed-use property across the United States, with more than a million square feet under development as well.
