Aster Conservatory Green – Forest City Nearing Completion of Pedestrian-Oriented 352-Unit Luxury Apartment Community in Denver
September 16, 2014
DENVER, CO – Award-winning national firm KTGY Group, Inc., Architecture + Planning, is pleased to announce that Aster Conservatory Green apartment community in Denver, Colo., is nearing completion. Designed by KTGY and developed by Forest City Enterprises of Cleveland, OH (NYSE:FCE.A), Aster Conservatory Green is a pedestrian-oriented community of 352 apartment homes, adjacent The Shops at Northfield Stapleton, and located in the award-winning master-planned community of Stapleton, near downtown Denver. Aster Conservatory Green is the first apartment community to be built in Northfield and is targeting both young professionals and families. The apartment community is expected to be completed at the end of September 2014.
Situated on 10.8 acres, Aster Conservatory Green’s apartment configurations consist of townhomes and flats, ranging in size from 550 to 1,400 square feet. The 24-building apartment community offers open floor plans and includes studios, 1-bedroom, 1-bedroom + den, and 2-bedroom apartments and 3-bedroom townhomes, with third-floor premium apartments. Residents will enjoy large bedrooms, private garages and upgraded finishes such as Granite or Quartz countertops, stainless steel or glass subway tile backsplash, premium fixtures and lighting, sustainable Hickory flooring, Espresso custom cabinetry, built-in wine storage, Whirlpool Energy Star stainless steel appliances including in-suite washer and dryer, water-saving fixtures, and spacious walk-in closets; also, tall 9’-13’9” ceilings, abundant windows, and a private balcony, patio or porch. Some of the apartment units have great views of the mountains and downtown.
Aster Conservatory Green is conveniently located across the street from Stapleton’s newest community amenities which includes a community pool, volleyball and basketball courts, outdoor table tennis, landscaped courtyards, a 1.75-acre park, outdoor grilling areas, fire pit and seating, dog run and wash, gardening plots, playground area, horseshoe pits, bike and jogging trails, and a nearby wildlife refuge.
According to KTGY’s Studio Director Nathan Sciarra, AIA, “Aster Conservatory Green apartment community’s contemporary design represents an updated version of the typical 3-story walk-up and addresses the need for increased density and a more cost-effective design. Buildings with tuck-under garages sit close to the street and create a pedestrian-friendly community. A central paseo with the outdoor amenities runs north south through the site to encourage walking and connectivity.”
Sciarra adds, “Targeting both young professionals and families, the unit configurations are wider to allow more light to reach all parts of the unit, but are lower in total square footage to keep rents affordable for today’s cost-conscious renters.”
The stylish new apartment community will offer easy access to Central Park Boulevard, public transportation and nearby Interstate 70. Residents can walk to shopping, dining and nightlife and be close to major employment centers.
The apartments are located at 4890 Northfield Boulevard in Denver and will be professionally managed by Forest City Residential. For more information about Aster Conservatory Green, see www.asterconservatorygreen.com.
