Project Summary

Novel RiNo by Crescent Communities is a 705,529 sq. ft mixed-use development located in the River North Arts District at 40th & Walnut in Denver. The project includes 483 apartment units in two buildings. The east building is a 5-story, Type IIIA wood-frame structure with 212 units. The west building is a 12-story, Type IA concrete-frame garage and podium structure at Levels 1-5 with 415 stalls below a Type IIA Infinity-frame structure with 271 units at Levels 6-12.

The project will include 11,134 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail space along Walnut St. as well as a community amphitheater space at 39th & Franklin. There is also a 7,800 sq. ft. indoor amenity space on the 6th floor that connects to a landscaped roof deck with a pool & spa and a 2,700 sq. ft. future bar/restaurant space and roof deck on the 12th floor. The project is designed to comply with Denver’s Green Building Initiative requirements.

The MW preconstruction team has been working extensively with Crescent Communities and Davis Partnership Architects over the past six months to finalize the design and budget. A phased turnover schedule is developed so that the east building will be permitted separately from the west building, allowing Crescent to deliver units before the completion of the overall project.

Groundbreaking for NOVEL RiNo was celebrated on July 20, 2021. Read more about the groundbreaking!
