Project Summary

Nest56 at Denargo Market, located just north of Coors Field in downtown Denver, provides supportive housing and a stable environment for young adults aged 18-25 years old who are transitioning out of the foster care system or escaping economic or familial instability. Milender White (MW) is proud to have built this singular community in a dynamic and newly desirable part of the city to give young adults the chance to move out of poverty and into a life filled with new possibilities and opportunities.

This five-story, 45,517 square-foot apartment building is wood-frame over concrete podium, utilizing prefabricated wood wall panels built offsite by MW. Construction is Type VA/IA. The building offers 56 one- and two-bedroom apartments, common spaces for residents to gather, build community, and access supportive services, and a social enterprise retail space at ground level, designed to foster entrepreneurship and skill development among residents.

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 soil concerns by using a special foundation system (grout-injected piers) to stabilize soils to minimize excavation and haul-off. The parcel was 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.
