Colorado Tops Out Two

Swinerton continues its work on two of Colorado’s most diverse project undertakings, but not before both projects celebrated topping out this summer.

Alto is a new five-story, multifamily affordable housing development, offering 70 units just blocks away from the new Regional Transportation District Westminster Station commuter rail line that opened in late 2016. The wood-frame on concrete podium affordable housing project includes 77 parking stalls on the lower level, a new leasing office, and community center space for co-developer Adams County Housing Authority (ACHA). Gorman & Associates is co-developer with ACHA. The building’s second level includes additional office space; residential dwellings and amenities such as a break room, fitness room, pet wash, and bike storage room; and an additional 44 parking spots on the podium courtyard. The third, fourth and fifth floors house residential units, with two-story townhomes facing the mountains to the west, and one- and two-bedroom units facing south with uninterrupted views of downtown Denver.

Swinerton’s second project to achieve topping out is 16th & Platte, a new 171,000-square-foot, four-story mixed use building includes ground-floor retail and restaurant core and shell construction, three levels of below-grade parking, and 80,000 square feet of core and shell office space above. Built of concrete with a steel and brick enclosure, this building is reminiscent of the surrounding warehouse district of Denver’s Central Platte Valley, Highlands Bridge and Lower Highlands. 16th and Platte topped out in early August, and will complete in the spring of 2018.

Congratulations to both teams for achieving notable milestones on your projects!
