The Belmar neighborhood is a redevelopment of a former regional shopping mall on a 1.3-acre site. The plan involves a mix of uses and an emphasis on pedestrian activity and public space. Cars are hidden from public view behind buildings in a parking court and in garages. The guidelines include design standards, building prototypes and urban design concepts for a variety of neighborhoods and building types, including apartments over storefronts, townhouses, live-work space, small garden court buildings, and senior housing.
Belmar Urban Apartments were envisioned as affordable family rental units in a new pedestrian-focused urban environment.
Build a site that serves as a transition between the active ‘downtown’ blocks and the residential townhouse blocks of suburban Denver.
- Individual articulation of the massing of residential components
