The Kuhlman Block redevelopment involved the acquisition and redevelopment of a 2.23 acre site into a residential mixed-use, mixed-income project located on “Block 3” of the former campus of the St. Anthony Central Hospital in the West Colfax neighborhood of Denver.
The mixed-use development program consists of: the adaptive reuse of the existing 6 story, 40,000 sq. ft. Kuhlman Building provides 49 affordable rental dwelling units; 25 market rate, 2 & 3 bedroom row-houses; and a 2,400 sq. ft. high bay café that is co-located with a 3,500 sq. ft. public plaza at the northeast corner of the site. The adaptive reuse of the existing 5,800 sq. ft. gymnasium attached north of the Kuhlman Bldg. will be transformed into a restaurant space. A significant water quality feature / rain garden of 4,000 sq. ft. is centrally located on the block.
Implementing high-quality urban design, the adaptive reuse of the Kuhlman Bldg., and contemporary new row-houses and a cafe, will be a vibrant, active and attractive community that includes a diverse mix of housing and commercial uses to enhance the legacy of St. Anthony and strengthen connections to Sloan’s Lake and the existing neighborhood.
