S*Park complex to rise at 26th & Lawrence
TreeHouse to develop condos, townhomes on Sustainability Park site.
The developers behind two of Denver’s most recognizable residential projects are getting ready to break more ground, this time at 26th and Lawrence streets.
TreeHouse Brokerage and Development built Lumina, a five-story apartment building in Denver’s LoHi neighborhood. It also was co-developer with Urban Market Partners on Verve, a 10-story apartment building at 15th and Delgany streets.
Now, along with Curtis Park Group, it’s preparing to break ground on S’Park, a condominium and townhome project.
S*Park, which is not related to a Boulder mixed-use project by the same name, is short for the historic name of the site: Sustainability Park.
It will include 91 condos and eight townhomes, ranging in size from studios to three bedrooms and starting in the upper-$200,000s.
The development will take up two city blocks between 25th and 27th streets along Lawrence Street, a site that will be inhabited one last time by The Big Wonderful, an annual outdoor market and music festival that will kick off its 2016 season on May 6 at 26th and Lawrence.
The Big Wonderful will take place at that site on various dates through mid-June, and then will relocate to a number of different sites throughout the metro area.
Once the festival has relocated, TreeHouse can break ground on S*Park. Groundbreaking is anticipated in June.
Curtis Park Group bought the land from the Denver Housing Authority, which means that the project must include an income-restricted component, the details of which are still being worked out with the city.
S*Park will include a private 19,500-square-foot park, solar panels, gated yards, underground parking, community gardens and a greenhouse.
“Working with the team at The Big Wonderful has been a fantastic opportunity to engage and support the community utilizing the vacant land that would have otherwise remained unused until S*Park’s June 2016 groundbreaking,” said Clem Rinehart, owner of TreeHouse Brokerage and Development.
“With S*Park, we hope to build a community similar to that created by The Big Wonderful, with residents of all ages interacting and enjoying everything that the burgeoning RiNo and Curtis Park neighborhoods have to offer.”
