Palisade’s vision is to build a mixed-use, transit-oriented development that is an amenity for the Five Points neighborhood. The building will maximize density to contribute to the Welton Street commercial corridor and its uses will complement other Palisade Partners projects. This project will continue the revitalization of Five Points, one of Denver’s greatest and most culturally rich neighborhoods.
26th and Welton will be a 9-story, mixed-use building. The preliminary plan is for 7,000 square feet of ground floor retail, two floors of office totaling approximately 31,000 square feet, some of which may be coworking space, and approximately 101 apartment units. Some of these units may be operated as hotel/AirBnB rooms.
The goal of the project is to use parking efficiently by mixing the uses and to provide living and office options at a lower price point than tradition apartments and office space. Parking demand may change significantly with the advent of automation, and this building is flexible to account for this potential change by adding above grade parking. This project features complementary residential offerings to what has been provided or is underway in the neighborhood but includes options with a lower price point.
Busboys and Poets, a combined bookstore, restaurant, and event space based out of Washington D.C. and named after poet and former busboy Langston Hughes, will be the tenant of the 7,000 square feet retail space. This will be the first Busboys and Poets location outside of Washington D.C. and is the perfect complement to Palisade’s other projects in Five Points and to the history and culture of the community.
Palisade is exploring how public art could be incorporated into the building design, paying tribute to the history of the site and neighborhood.
