17 Chestnut is located at the intersection of Chestnut Place and 17th Street in the Union Station neighborhood of downtown Denver, one of the most exciting new urban mixed-use neighborhoods in the country. Designed by Shears Adkins Rockmore, the project consists of two high-rise, multi-family buildings with approximately 500 apartments including studios and one and two bedrooms. The north tower is 21 stories on top of a podium parking structure with two levels underground and three above ground. The south tower is a nine-story structure with a total of six levels of parking, with two of those underground.
Common areas including a pool and rooftop clubroom, approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of street-level retail and 500 spaces of structured parking.
This project is located in a highly compressed site in a congested area with pedestrian and vehicular traffic at Union Station. Saunders developed a highly detailed site logistics and safety plan to ensure no incidents and minimize the burden of construction operations to the traveling public.
This project is LEED Silver Certified.
