There are some big infrastructure improvements coming to the Lower Highlands. The City and County of Denver and CDOT have combined two projects into one. On Central Street, just across the highway from Riverfront Park, a 10-foot wide concrete bike/pedestrian trail will be built. Currently, it is just dirt and weeds that exist on the East side of Central. The new sidewalk and landscaping will connect 15th Street to 20th along with the Highland Bridge. This will give the only three connections between the Lower Highlands and Downtown a much needed facelift. Additionally, the 15th Street bridge over 1-25 will be completely rebuilt. It will have much wider sidewalks and fences and lights that match those of the 20th Street bridge. All of this work is scheduled to be completed by late 2013 and will cost approximately $23 million.

The Manhattan Apartment building’s second phase will break ground any day now. It’s located between 18th and 19th on Little Raven, backing to The Brownstones. The construction fence is in place and benches and trash cans are being removed as we speak. The second phase will have 134 new apartments and will have a new leasing center for both phases. It’s designed as a four and five story building on an underground parking garage. The completion is estimated for the summer of 2012. Rentals in Riverfront Park have been very successful and we look forward to this new addition to the neighborhood.
