Photos: Ten apartment projects currently under construction in Denver
Big photos below.
Our recent cover story, "Design Flaw," contains some startlingly lopsided statistics: As of July, there were a whopping 7,148 apartments planned or under construction in Denver, according to the Downtown Denver Partnership, while the number of condos being built was a meager 145 units.

There are several theories as to why -- but whatever the cause, the effect is that condo-buyers may be out of luck while apartment-dwellers will have their pick. Continue to see photos of projects under construction.

Below, find photos and information on a sampling of the apartment buildings currently being built in Denver. Curious about a construction project in your neighborhood? Leave the location in the comments section below and we'll try to figure out what it is.

The Douglas, 2300 Walnut Street
310 apartment units

Nate Hemmert
From developer Mill Creek Residential's website:
The Douglas, formally known as 2300 Walnut, is the newest addition to Denver's historic Ballpark Neighborhood, providing a living experience that is distinctly urban and distinctly social. With an emphasis on access, residents are within walking distance to Coors Field, Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo), Snooze Café (a weekend tradition - trust us and get the pancakes!) and all the best Larimer Street restaurants and boutiques. What's more, the community is just minutes to the Pepsi Center and I-25 and I-36, providing easy access to all points beyond downtown.

Styled after a resort courtyard that emulates boutique hotels, the pool, year-round spa and outdoor fireplaces offer residents the chance to gather and relax. Entertaining is made easy with an outdoor gourmet kitchen, and large spacious resident lounge.

Each designer apartment home includes slab granite countertops, washer and dryer and Energy Star appliances. No detail has been overlooked, from the custom wood cabinetry and the upgraded lighting packages to the wooden plank style flooring. Many of the homes have walk-in closets and balconies. Residents will also enjoy perks such as included parking and rentable storage and bike rooms, bike maintenance area and dog wash.

The Douglas is on track for first move-ins this summer with leasing expected to begin in late May 2013. Visit for more information.

I am a Denver native myself, and I just moved out to some San Jose apartments. Things are really different out here, and I do miss Denver. I see why many Californians are moving to Denver now more than ever. If you think the prices in Denver are bad, try moving out here to California. Downtown prices are cheap for people moving from California or other states where the cost of living is much higher. I moved for work myself. Many other people are moving to Denver for the same reason. That is why these types of apartment buildings are on the rise.


ehhh... denver will be ruined by the yuppies living in these cookie cutter puke boxes. Fuck this gentrification crap.

fuckin stupid . How bout all the abandoned buildings not just apartments.


There are more than that in "Denver"


I think Denver is doing a good job of "filling in". As architecturally predictable as these projects are, I am glad to see them popping up. Most of these apartments are replacing surface parking lots that have stained our urban core for decades.


@Flores There sure are! This list is meant as a sampling of the apartment projects currently being built in Denver.
