Ground has been broken! We are pleased to introduce Oso, named after Mount Oso, in the San Juan Mountains. This nine story, mixed-use project will deliver 267 units and over 15,000 SF of commercial space to Denverites. A few unique aspects of this building: first, there is additional space on the ground level for outdoor seating & landscape which will help to engage the community and welcome passers by into the building; second, there are several walk-up units which are reminiscent of a stroll through NYC or Boston. These two design considerations will make Oso a destination, as it will feel approachably urban.

The team at Craine feels passionate about designing buildings that will stand the test of time. That is why we lean into the use of ageless materials that will not only make Oso feel as though it has been part of the historic fabric of Denver, but to ensure that it will remain a beautiful component of Denver’s architecture for future generations.

We will keep you posted on the progress. Oso is set to open in the fourth quarter of 2024!

FoundryLine is on the way to RiNo! The ground breaking will take place later this month and this project promises to bring some of the most luxurious living to Denver. This is a 17-story apartment building which will deliver 348 apartments, 30 of which will be restricted to those earning 80 percent or less than the median Denver income. Residents will not only enjoy exquisitely designed homes, but also amenity spaces which consist of a rooftop pool and fitness center on the 16th floor. The ground floor will activate the street with 14,000 SF of restaurant and retail space. We have loved working not only with all of the fantastic people at McWhinney, but also an incredible project team including: Hansel Phelps (GC), Dig (Landscape) & AvroKO (Interior Design).

2019 Mayor’s Design Award

2019 Mayor’s Design Award 1883 1400 Kristy

A big congratulations to the team at Craine who worked on The Lydian, as it was one of the award winners at last night’s big event. This is a 145,800 SF mixed-use building with 15,000 SF of office space, 10,000 SF of retail space all topped by 129 apartments, a gorgeous amenity space, pool and workout room. This project is near (literally down the street from our office) and dear to us, as we were able to team with some of our favorite people in Denver–Palisade Partners and Confluence Companies. We worked closely with the community to create a design that appropriately blends into the residential and historic setting of Five Points. The inviting nature of this space epitomizes not only the public involvement in the design process, but also the ideas of inclusivity and community engagement. We pride ourselves on designing spaces that draw you in and make you feel welcome. So if you are riding the light-rail down the Welton corridor, pop out at the 25th & Welton stop! Grab a beverage at the Welton Room, take a class at River Yoga or just hang out in the lobby of The Lydian. We promise, you will feel great in this space and meet some terrific people!
