A new 12-story, 196-unit mixed-use condominium and rowhome community has become the first multifamily project in Colorado to earn WELL Precertification under the WELL Building Standard.

The 540,000-sf development is located on the former site of St. Anthony Hospital at 4200 West 17th Avenue less than three miles from Downtown Denver. The project blends unique architecture, modern comfort, and sustainable design features with extensive wellness-focused amenities. The glass, stone, steel, and wood complement the setting overlooking Sloan's Lake Park while the facade features a cascading waterfall of glass to enhance views of downtown Denver's skyline, Sloan's Lake, and the Rocky Mountains.
