Avenida Lakewood – Work is Underway on New Res Community for Active Adults in Denver
December 6, 2017
Avenida Partners LLC has begun construction of a new, 230-unit service-enriched rental community for active adults age 55 and better in the metro Denver. The project, Avenida Lakewood, is located just six miles from downtown Denver and in the heart of Lakewood at the corner of Colfax Ave and Owens St.
Designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning, Avenida Lakewood is the centerpiece of the Oak Station Marketplace mixed-use development serving the newly-constructed W Light Rail Oak Station. It is situated within walking distance to King Soopers, a supermarket brand of Kroger, and many other shops and restaurants. Notable locations such as Colorado Mills Mall, Westland Town Center, St. Anthony Medical Center and the Denver Federal Center are all nearby.
Avenida Lakewood apartment community provides four floors of 55+ experiential living on just over six acres. According to KTGY Principal Terry A. Willis, AIA, LEED AP, “This handsome, 55+ community embraces both Rocky Mountain and Denver skyline views, while giving residents vibrant living options through upscale amenities on site and connections to what the entire metropolitan region offers by nearby access to the Oak light rail station on the W Line.”
Avenida Lakewood features three creative garden courtyards, a wide variety of interior amenities and activities happening all day, every day. “What makes Avenida Lakewood unique is its ‘S’-shaped configuration organized around three distinct and lushly landscaped courtyards, for active, passive, pool and poolside activities topped-off with the rooftop ‘sky lounge’ with private indoor/outdoor entertainment areas with views of the Rocky Mountain foothills and the downtown skyline, an exceptional feature in this area,” stated Willis.
Avenida Lakewood’s design accommodates the slope of the site by creating a lower level at the bottommost end of the site and increasing the ceiling height in the amenity space at the center of the site. The amenity space wraps the central courtyard, which features a heated saltwater pool, spa and outdoor dining. The interior offers residents access to yoga and fitness rooms, beauty salon, lounge, TV room and movie theater, arts and crafts room; bistro/dining hall, living room, business center and conference area.
Other community amenities include an elegant great room, pub and game room, dog park, outdoor patio and barbecue grills, garden plots, shuffleboard area and walking trails. Enclosed single-car garages and storage are also available for a small additional fee.
The apartment homes at Avenida Lakewood range in size from 800 sf. to 1.2k sf and include a mix of 92 one-bedroom apartments and 138 two-bedroom apartments. Some of the apartment features include a private balcony, granite countertops, wood cabinetry with designer hardware, stainless steel appliances, and washer and dryer in all homes.
