Mariposa Redevelopment Phase III

Denver, CO

Mariposa Redevelopment Phase III is a mixed-income rental development in the historic La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood in Denver.  The neighborhood is known for its diversity of residents, the rich cultural asset of the Santa Fe Arts District and the vibrant spirit, “La Alma” of the community.  Phase III was delivered via a design-build approach with new construction designed for and pursuing LEED Gold. The project achieves 50% energy cost savings relative to ASHRAE standard.

Phase III is located on the site east of Navajo Street and west of Mariposa Street along the north side of 10th Avenue.  The project includes 93 total units including six (6) townhomes facing Mariposa Street.  The first floor includes commercial/retail space.  There is a one-level structured underground parking garage with 38 spaces.

The design process relied on an extensive community outreach process that is a continuation from the South Lincoln Master Plan. Several community meetings were held to ensure that the design is truly of the community.
