Swinerton Builders, Broe Real Estate Group, an affiliate of The Broe Group, and SCB Architects recently broke ground on a residential apartment building project that will employ up to 1,000 construction workers and provide high-quality housing with innovative design in a supply-constrained market. Denver’s newest landmark apartment building, the twin 31-story Country Club Towers II, will be located in the West Wash Park neighborhood near the intersection of South Downing Street and East Bayaud Avenue. The first units will be available to renters in mid-2017.
The groundbreaking ceremony featured Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, Councilman Chris Nevitt, Sean Broe representing The Broe Group, Doug Wells and Carl Luppens of Broe Real Estate Group, Gary Rafferty of Swinerton Builders, and Michael Gifford of the Associated General Contractors of Colorado. The speakers praised the project and the job training that is to be provided by Swinerton and Associated General Contractors of Colorado.
In addition to developing the abilities of the labor workforce, Swinerton will employ college student interns which will help prepare future construction professionals for the rigors of managing complex commercial construction projects.
Country Club Towers II will offer 552 environmentally friendly apartments and 1,005 structured parking spaces which doubles zoning requirements. Each apartment will have floor-to-ceiling, energy-efficient bay windows, granite surfaces, stainless steel appliances, and in-unit washers/dryers. Amenities include a lap pool with 26,000-square-foot deck, fitness center, yoga rooms, dog washing area, bike repair station, multiple outdoor patios, an indoor common kitchen, and clubhouse. Additionally, six existing apartments in the Country Club Gardens and Towers are being renovated as part of this project.
