Carvana is picking up speed at I-25 and Evans Avenue.

The Arizona-based used car retailer is currently constructing its “car vending machine” at 4700 E. Evans Ave., right next to the interchange.

Plans call for a single-story office/showroom building, with a seven-level glass tower displaying vehicles that tops out at 75 feet.

Customers who buy a car from Carvana can have it delivered to their home in certain markets, including Denver. Or they can pick it up from one of the company’s vending machines. There are 24 around the country, with the closest ones in Oklahoma City and Kansas City.

The vending machine is essentially an automated parking system that also functions as a vertical showroom. Customers are given a custom coin upon arrival which, when inserted, activates the delivery system and brings the desired vehicle to a delivery bay.

Carvana paid $5.8 million in April for the site where the facility is being constructed. The Denver City Council rezoned the property the previous month.

Here are photos of the project taken Monday, as well as a rendering:
