Lakehouse Celebrates Official Topping Off

It’s an exciting month here at Lakehouse Denver as we just topped off on our 13th level to conclude the concrete phase of construction! The teams from NAVA Real Estate Development, G.H. Phipps, Kentwood City Properties and many more gathered onsite today to celebrate the raising of the final steel beam.

Since breaking ground in May of 2017, the site’s two red cranes have become a beacon in the Denver skyline. The smaller of the cranes was taken down in early October and the second will be removed later this year. To date, our general contractor G.H. Phipps and crews have placed over 26,000 cubic yards of concrete and 350 tons of reinforcements at Lakehouse.

“We commend and congratulate G.H. Phipps and their subcontractors for keeping the project on track,” says Don Larsen, vice president of NAVA Real Estate Development, developer of Lakehouse. “The team successfully managed a complex design paired with challenging site conditions that included ground water, ground water treatment, a sloped site and multiple building floor elevations to ensure that pour dates were met. NAVA is truly grateful for their dedication to the project.”

Located just steps from the south shore of Sloan’s Lake on the corner of 17th Avenue and Raleigh Street, Lakehouse offers 196 condominium and rowhome residences. Available condominiums range in size from approximately 737 to 3,357 square feet, with one-, two- and three-bedroom options priced from the low $500,000s to $3.3 million. The two- and three-bedroom rowhomes range in size from 1,578 square feet to 2,230 square feet and are priced from $880,000 to $1.2 million.

With completion scheduled for next year, the development team is working diligently to finish programming for the exterior and interior spaces and expects to have a mock-up residence ready for hard-hat viewing soon.

“We are now at the point where we are selecting furniture for the common areas, equipment for the fitness lab and even permanent signage and artwork,” states Brian Levitt, who along with his business partner and fellow Denver resident, Trevor Hines, founded NAVA to develop architecturally-significant communities in prime locations that are sensitive to the environment and building occupants. “We’ve partnered with a talented team of experts to help us bring Lakehouse to life and fulfill our promise for a community that is both healthy and beautiful.”

As one of just a few high-rise, for-sale residential buildings under construction in Denver, Lakehouse is further differentiated by being the first in Colorado to pilot and pursue the WELL Building Certification. The internationally-recognized, performance-based system is the first to focus solely on promoting human health and wellness in the built environment and is based around seven key elements including wellness, air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. Healthy features include open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize natural light, improved air quality through a MERV-13 air filtration system, an onsite Urban Farm to encourage healthy eating and even a Creative Workshop to inspire the arts.
