Avenida Lakewood, designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning and developed by Avenida Partners, will feature 230 units and is slated for completion in spring 2019.

KTGY Architecture + Planning and Avenida Partners have begun construction on a new senior community in metro Denver. Dubbed Avenida Lakewood, the development is located six miles from downtown at the corner of Colfax Avenue and Owens Street in Lakewood, Colo.

Comprising 230-units, the community will be reserved for residents age 55 and older. Avenida Lakewood is at the center of the Oak Station Marketplace mixed-use development serving the newly-constructed W Light Rail Oak Station. Designed by KTGY, the four-story project sits on six acres and accommodates the slope of the site by creating a lower level at the bottom end and increasing the ceiling height in the amenity space at the center of the development. 

“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,” said Terry Willis, AIA, LEED AP of KTGY.  

Active Lifestyle Amenities 

Avenida Lakewood offers 92 one- and 138 two-bedroom floorplans ranging from 793 to 1,238 square feet. Interior features will include private balconies, granite countertops, wood cabinetry with designer hardware, stainless steel appliances and washer/dryers. Community amenities include:

  • central courtyard

“Residents of Avenida Lakewood will enjoy resort-style amenities and beautiful, modern apartment homes without the responsibility of ownership,” said Robert May, managing partner with Avenida Partners. “The goal is to make the residents’ lifestyle as luxurious and effortless as possible, so they can enjoy every day to the fullest.”

The presale office is set to open in May of 2018 and the community is slated for completion in spring of 2019. The project is within close proximity to King Soopers, a supermarket brand of Kroger, as well as other retail and restaurant options such as Colorado Mills Mall, Westland Town Center, St. Anthony Medical Center and the Denver Federal Center.  

Last month, KTGY Architecture + Planning, along with Trammell Crow Residential, received approval for its $95 million mixed-use residential community in San Francisco.
