What Goes up, Must Come Down

Tower cranes are the workhorse of many large-scale construction sites, yet there comes the time when they are no longer needed on site. Such is the case at Monroe Street Apartments in Cherry Creek. The 140-foot-tall tower crane was dismantled in 18 hours over two days by Swinerton Builders Colorado team members in June. Originally erected in May 2014, a gigantic, 500-ton crane was used to disassemble the tower crane.

With completion slated for later this year, the Monroe Street Apartments will provide 289 apartments with high-end features and amenities, and 467-parking spaces in a structure wrapped by the apartments. Amenities include a pool deck on the eighth floor equipped with an outdoor kitchen, hot tub, and cabanas; yoga studio and fitness room; an indoor demonstration kitchen attached to a private dining and board room; media and game room, dog-wash area; and a bike repair shop. The property features a pocket park which connects to the Cherry Creek hike and bike trail.

Stay tuned for project updates on this highly-anticipated multifamily residential complex!
