Venture Architecture, a Denver-based firm specializing in client-centric design, has announced a six-story upscale apartment building that will sit atop the bluff on the west bank of the Arkansas River. The project, spurred by the partnership with Oreamnos Development and Pueblo-based Akansa LLC; will deliver approximately 98 market-rate apartments that will bring a best-in-class urban product for future renters.
“For years we’ve wondered why this great location was overlooked. Pueblo is our hometown and we are proud to be a part of bringing this needed housing with premium amenities and design to our city,” noted Akansa LLC CEO John Wark.
The three-acre site sits adjacent to the new Whitewater Park overlooking downtown Pueblo. The city has been experiencing a cultural and economic renaissance in recent years.
“Pueblo has an incredibly rich cultural history and strong architectural fabric,” said Martin Goldstein, principal at Venture Architecture. “The Bluffs multifamily project will be a sophisticated addition to the city’s skyline and will add an excellent new residential option to this great place to live.”
“It is incredibly exciting for downtown Pueblo and surrounding areas to have a class A market value apartment building going up on the bluff. I have seen the project and I am beyond impressed with the architectural design coming right In our own downtown backyard,” said Pueblo City Council President and At-Large Representative Heather Graham, “It’s exciting to see the new developments coming to Pueblo, creating a boom in housing that we haven’t seen before. For the betterment and economic growth, I am in complete support of this project and excited to see it prosper.”
This building sits high up on a hill, with an impeccable view of the city. It has a carefully crafted, forward-looking style and sophistication that considered its relationship with both the neighborhood and city skyline. Its special design will have a positive impact and bring meaning to its residents and neighbors alike.
Project partners expect to break ground on the 120,000-square-foot project in early 2023 with mid-2024 as the target for completion.
