Denver-based Stonebridge Cos. plans to break ground in the first quarter on an 18-story building in the Denver Tech Center’s Belleview Station area, according to a company representative.

Development plans call for five floors of hotel rooms, approximately 236 rooms in all, topped by 11 stories of office space. There will be retail, restaurant and lobby space on the ground floor. The company declined to provide a rendering.

The project is slated to replace the existing Economy Suites DTC hotel at 4885 S. Quebec St.


Kimpton (DTC)

Developer Cypress 16 plans to break ground in mid-2020 on a 20-story Kimpton hotel in the Denver Tech Center’s Belleview Station area, according to an executive.

The project is slated for the northwest corner of Chenango Avenue and Olive Street, and will have 190 rooms. The site is currently undeveloped. The company declined to provide a rendering.

The owners of Native Hostel in Austin, Texas, purchased the existing building at 2335 Arapahoe St. in Denver in December. Will Steakley and partners plan to convert the structure into an approximately 100-bed hostel, including building a 10,000-square-foot addition on an adjacent parking lot. A 2021 opening is eyed.

Denver-based Central Street Capital plans to break ground in the second quarter on a five-story, 70-room independent hotel at 2500 18th St. in LoHi, according to a company executive.

The hotel is slated to be named Hotel Perenne, which draws its name from the Spanish word for “perennial.”

Denver-based Mainspring expects to break ground in the first half of 2020 on a five-story hostel at 3030 Welton St., dubbed Cabarita House, according to a company executive.

Plans call for 80 beds in shared rooms, as well as 11 private rooms.


Maybe: Train (RiNo)

This also appeared on our office groundbreakings list.

Denver-based Invent Development Partners and New York-based partner Halpern Real Estate Ventures hope to break ground on their project dubbed Train near RiNo’s 38th and Blake station in either the fourth quarter of 2020 or the first quarter of 2021, according to an Invent executive. Plans call for hundreds of hotel rooms.


What’s not on here?

Developers behind proposals for a 14-story hotel at 270 14th St., an eight-story hotel at 1637-1655 Blake St., a 12-story hotel at 3660 Brighton Blvd. and a 12-story hotel at 370 S. Garfield St. either didn’t respond to a request for comment or declined to discuss when they expect to break ground.

A Mortenson executive, meanwhile, said the company has “not made any definitive decisions” regarding the eight-story, 192-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel the company proposed at 2099 Chestnut Place. The project was dealt a blow when the city rejected Mortenson’s bid late last year for 5,074 square feet of adjacent right-of-way.

Hostels? How interesting. What a great way to attract younger tourists to our city. It’s the only way I was able to make my way through Europe as a young person.

Does anyone have insight on the Ace Hotel that was proposed for 19th & Logan? That looked like such a cool project.
