The Grand is a luxury residential apartment community completed in 2018. Located in Denver’s Central Platte Valley and adjacent to the city’s bustling Union Station transit center, the site is enveloped in access to transportation of all kinds.
Designed to welcome Denver’s new, urban-loving residents such as those moving from coastal markets like New York and LA, The Grand embraces its urban location in both its urban and interior design. The project features two high-rise towers, with 508 residential apartments ranging from studios to 2-bedrooms, joined by a landscaped court and accessed through a common covered entry. The taller building, The Tower Residences, reaches 250’ in height and is surrounded by 140’ buildings, allowing nearly 360-degree views of Downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains for many of the residences. A rooftop pool deck and garden are located the at the top of this taller structure for the benefit of all residents as well.
Boasting some of the most unique amenities in the marketplace, The Grand’s branding was envisioned by design partner Ken Fulk, Inc., a talented team responsible for some of the West Coast’s sexiest building brands. SA+R was responsible for the interior design of the individual residential units as well as some high-end amenity spaces. These amenity spaces are not institutional or corporate, as they carefully reinforce the whimsical brand identity and create a unique sense of place within Denver’s evolving downtown. The north tower interiors feature a bit of glitz through bold concrete floors with wood inlays and a living wall to bring some organic nature inward. The south tower is more old-school, harkening back to the site’s industrial history with brick floors, curated shelving and panelized walls. Unique curiosities are found throughout the building’s amenity spaces.
This project received LEED Silver Certification and was named one of the winners of the 2019 Mayor’s Design Awards.
