Mill Creek has added a Denver community to its construction pipeline with the groundbreaking of Modera University Park. First move-ins at the property are anticipated in early 2025.

Lucas Sandidge, vice president of development for Mill Creek Residential in Denver, told Multi-Housing News that the community is slated to be online by July 2025. Mill Creek is general contractor on the project and has tapped Davis Partnership Architects as architect, according to Sandidge.

Upon completion, Modera University Park will offer 234 units in studio, one- and two-bedroom units with some units in den or loft layouts. The apartments will be built with nine-foot ceilings, built-in shelving and desks, moveable kitchen islands, walk-in closets, double bathroom vanities, in-home washers and dryers and private patios or balconies. Mill Creek also plans to integrate smart home tech with the residences, including smart thermostats, mobile guest entry and key fob access.

Common amenities will include a resident clubhouse, rooftop deck, grilling area, theater room, pool table, coffee bar and dog park, as well as a conference room, co-working spaces and private workstations. Bicycle lockers, digital package lockers and storage spaces will also be available. Mill Creek is pursuing a National Green Building Standard Gold certification for the property.

Located at 2354 S High St. in Denver’s University Park neighborhood, the community will be located near many restaurants and retail options. The neighborhood is anchored by the University of Denver. Residents have a quick commute to the Evans Avenue and Colorado Boulevard commercial corridors and are less than a mile away from the University of Denver Light Rail station.

Developing in Denver and beyond

Modera University Park marks Mill Creek’s eighth ground-up residential development in Denver. The company is also developing Modera Golden Triangle, a 323-unit luxury community in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood that is expected to see its first move-ins in mid-2024. In 2019, Mill Creek completed the 197-unit Modera Cap Hill in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
