This multi-family project sits at the corner of 13th and Newland Streets in Lakewood, Colorado. The building is proposed at 5 levels, at a continuous datum throughout the site. The 155 unit multifamily structure consisting of studio, 1 & 2 Bedroom Units, and a 3-story plus roof deck “Clubhouse” occupies the northeast corner of the site. The building is designed as a “L” Shaped building running west to east and north to south. This project will begin construction in March 2015.
The building configuration will provide long views south east and west and immediate views of the West RTD Line. The primary vehicular entrance to the site will be from Newland Street, ½ the distance south on Newland Street offering a deviation and a front parking lot entry scenario on the site. The pedestrian entries to the site will be from 13th Street at the northwest corner into the circulation lobby and via the clubhouse entry at the northeast corner of the site. These will serve as the primary points for pedestrian entry from the Light Rail. The primary entry from the parking will be inside the “L” at the inner Northeast corner. Parking is provided via 12 spaces along 13th street, 17 spaces along Newland and 147 spaces within the site. 43 parking spaces will be covered. Additionally, internal to the site are 26 storage spaces. Recreation opportunities will occur at the clubhouse at the northeast corner of the site throughout 3 floors and the roof. Bicycle storage will occur at the north two bays of the covered garages, accommodating 92 bikes.
The clubhouse, situated prominently at the northeast corner of the site, will welcome residents and visitors as they enter from 13th and the light-rail. Amenities will include a three-story community clubhouse, fitness center, and property management and leasing office, as well as the roof outdoor program described above.
