Photos: Ten apartment projects currently under construction in Denver
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.
Big photos below.
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.

The Douglas, 2300 Walnut Street
310 apartment units
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.Continue for more photos of apartment projects under construction.
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 TheDouglasDenver.com for more information.
