Gateway – Sun Valley is a 4-phase project consisting of 2 similar designed multi-family apartment buildings (Gateway North & Gateway South) totaling 187 units, several of which are family 4 & 5 bedroom dwellings. Additionally there are 6 for sale affordable town-homes, and lastly, Right of Way and Infrastructure improvements to the Sun Valley neighborhood. The projects are located on both sides of W 10th Ave between Federal Blvd and Decatur Street in the Sun Valley district. Construction schedule is set to start January 2019 and complete Q3/4-2020.
What makes this project unique and different from others is that it’s comprised of multiple 6 story buildings that have open walk ways. The open air decreased costs by not having to push fresh air, or make up air through them which decreases motor sizes and domino affects into a smaller electrical service. This approach is unique for the Denver market by not only taking an out of the box approach, but additionally providing a unique design look. This design idea was the brain of Ryan Tobin with DHA. The idea was then fully detailed and designed by Workshop8 Architects.
