Union Denver Tops Out Its Third & Final Tower
Denver, CO – Holland Partner Group (Holland) and NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH) recently announced the topping out of the third and final tower for Union Denver, a LEED Gold 580 unit mixed-use community. Located at the corner of 17th Street and Wewatta in downtown Denver adjacent to Denver’s Historic Union Station, the final crane is being removed from the project site later this month. Union Denver will also be home to Whole Foods Market’s new 56,000 square foot flagship Denver store.
“The addition of Whole Foods Market to the development improves the quality of life downtown. We’re excited by Whole Foods’ commitment to build a unique store that mirrors our commitment to build a comfortable environment for those seeking the urban lifestyle,” said Reed Ruck, Managing Director of Development for Holland. “The topping-out of the third tower is yet another important milestone towards the successful completion of this environmentally conscious mixed-use community in the heart of Denver.”
The building will open up to residents in three phases. The first phase opens up in May 2017 and is currently pre-leasing at Uniondenver.com. The second phase coming later this summer, and the third one early next year. Union Denver is comprised of approximately 67,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, one level of underground parking, and two full levels of above-grade parking.
Sitting on top of the retail/parking will stand three 10-story towers containing approximately 580 residential units (including 80 penthouse units with upgraded finishes and unique floorplans). The three towers will be connected by a central amenity building, surrounded by three separate outdoor recreation and living areas.
This Whole Foods location will feature décor elements that reflect the history of LoDo and Denver at large. In addition to an expanded Prepared Foods department featuring chef-inspired breakfast, lunch and dinner options for dining in or carrying out, customers will find fresh and organic produce, over 3,000 locally sourced products available year-round, meat and seafood cut fresh in-house by butchers and fish mongers, fresh coffee and juice bars, groceries, pastries and artisan breads baked fresh in-house, as well as a full-scale vitamin, supplement, and lifestyle department.
The store will also offer expansive seating indoors and outdoors as well as catering and delivery. The outdoor seating options are both at a 17th Street plaza level and a mezzanine level that overlooks Denver’s Union Station.
