Weitz Rocky Mountain Leaves Their Mark on the Denver Skyline
In 2024, the Weitz Rocky Mountain team is ecstatic to have not one, but two projects entering their final stages in downtown Denver, leaving our mark on the city’s legendary skyline.
Both projects are multi-family high-rise structures located in the heart of downtown Denver. Kindred and 26th & Alcott are nearing the finish line, and our project teams are working hard to ensure both buildings are prepared for tenants to move-in early this year. With these two projects, Weitz has successfully completed over 2,000 downtown high-rise units in Denver in the last five years alone.
Kindred is a 313,566 SF, 14 story 224 unit building with its first tenants moving in on January 15, 2024. Notably, the project received their temporary certificate of occupancy one week early. Inspectors from the Denver Fire Department raved about the cleanliness of the building, the organization the team displayed, and how all the systems functioning perfectly. Additionally, the team passed all DFD inspections on the first try, an exceedingly rare feat and a testament to the project team’s skill and dedication.
26th & ALCOTT
Just down the road, 26th & Alcott is an 810,140 SF, 15 story 626-unit multifamily project that also has a 93-unit hotel attached. The project team has been challenged with opening this project in four phases, a difficult task in the city of Denver. This type of phasing takes intense planning and coordination with all partners involved in the project. In November 2023, the hotel tower was successfully turned over for furniture, fixtures, and equipment stocking. On January 11, 2024, the hotel was turned over for occupancy. The multi-family and outdoor amenity portion of the tower is its final stages and will be turned over to operations in April. The owner is projecting its first tenants to move in before summer.
Both project teams for Kindred and 26th & Alcott have done an outstanding job at meeting the high demands of these projects. Working within a tight downtown, zero lot line site, coordinating with project partners to meet city and client requirements, delivering multi-faceted projects, and more, these teams have worked tirelessly to make both of these projects a successLaura Eathorne, General Manager for Weitz’s Rocky Mountain office
