2700 Wewatta Way
Denver, CO

Type: Multi-Unit Residential

Owner: Rivet Development Partners LLC & Pennrose LLC

Architect: Shears Adkins Rockmore

Project Summary

Milender White (MW), Rivet Development Partners LLC & Pennrose LLC have teamed up with Shears Adkins Rockmore Architects to develop supportive housing for young adults aged 18-25 years old who are transitioning out of the foster care system or out of economic or familial instability. This community in Denargo Market, a neighborhood just north of Coors Field in downtown Denver, will provide an opportunity for these young adults to move out of poverty and instability due to trauma and homelessness and into an adult life filled with support and the possibility for social enterprise and growth.

This five-story, 45,517 square-foot apartment building is wood-frame over concrete podium, utilizing prefabricated wood wall panels built offsite by MW. 2700 Wewatta Way will provide 56 one and two-bedroom units as well as common residential amenity spaces, a social enterprise retail space, and six surface parking stalls.

The project received LIHTC approval in November 2021 and construction began in January 2023.

The project team has ably met the challenges presented by the job site, a former landfill. MW’s team addressed and resolved contamination and unsuitable soils concerns by using a special foundation system (grout-injected piers) to stabilize soils to minimize excavation and haul-off. The parcel is small, with a large city-owned retaining wall on one side and railroad property on another, limiting street access and demanding a tight logistics plan.

2700 Wewatta Way will make a positive and lasting impact on its residents when it completes in 2024.
