An apartment developer’s plans along Santa Fe Drive in Lincoln Park have swelled to a full city block.
Washington-based Holland Partner Group is currently building a five-story, approximately 200-unit apartment complex in the southern portion of the block formed by Santa Fe and Inca Street, and 10th and 11th avenues. It purchased that site for $8.7 million last November, breaking ground shortly thereafter.
Now, the company has proposed a second project that would take up the northern portion of the block.
The company’s concept plan, submitted to the city last week, calls for two five-story buildings with a combined 225 units and 203 parking spaces. There would be about 8,000 square feet of retail space along Santa Fe Drive.
Holland did not respond to a request for comment.
There are a number of existing structures at the site, including two along 11th Avenue previously used by Tortillas Mexico, which recently relocated to Englewood. Nearly all of the parcels in the proposed development site are owned by Jose Rangel, who founded the tortilla producer in 1986, according to its website.
A worker who answered the company’s phone this week referred a reporter to Rangel’s son, who did not return a voicemail.
Holland is an active developer in Denver. Locally, the company most recently completed the 238-unit Neon Local, at 99 S. Broadway, and the 170-unit Bromwell at 355 Logan St. In March, the company paid $14.24 million for a site in RiNo.
