The Hooper, a freshly constructed, nine-story multi-use, 103-unit apartment building, pays homage to Five Points’ neighborhood legend, Benny Hooper. A well-known, prominent business tycoon, the “mayor of Five Points” Hooper played into the area’s culture, succeeding in jazz and casino businesses. The Hooper sits along the historic Welton Street Corridor, previously lined with music clubs and dance halls, adjacent to the Rossonian Hotel and just steps away from the 25th and Welton RTD Light Rail Station. The new building is opening its doors for the first time in September 2021, welcoming its inaugural residents. Renters can step outside to the diverse neighborhood and try out the many bars and restaurants in the area, demonstrating the impacts of the ongoing neighborhood revitalization. With easy access to both downtown and I-70, it’s no wonder the building offers stunning views of the city and the mountains alike.
The building offers a unique blend of microunits and traditional apartments with a mix of studios, one, two, and three bedrooms, so there is something at The Hooper for everyone! All of the apartments are pet-friendly and feature modern finishes, wood-inspired flooring, and full-sized kitchen appliances, as well as balconies and an in-unit washer and dryer in select floor plans. The building itself is energy-efficient, as recognized by the National Green Building Standards; some green features include a recycling program and Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in the connected and secure parking garage.
The Hooper will honor the heritage of the culturally rich Five Points community with jazz-inspired and historic-centered artwork throughout the building and several lounge-like common areas. Other highlights include a golf simulator, an on-site fitness center, a top-floor viewing deck, a clubroom with a full kitchen, bike storage, plus on-site retail. As a partner on the project, Five Points Development Corporation is working with Impact Empowerment Group to provide opportunities for local Five Points contractors, skilled labor, and vendors to keep jobs local and in the neighborhood. The Hooper connects the past and the future of the community, so inquire about your new apartment today to join the neighborhood and social festivities tomorrow!
