Five Points Denver


Rossonian 1000 750 Kristy

As the architect for the Rossonian Rehabilitation and Addition, we are contributing to the revival of this historic building as a music venue and hotel. We are excited to be working on such a significant project that is also near our offices in the Five Points neighborhood. Rocky Mountain PBS ran a segment about the Rossonian Renaissance. View it here.

The Wheatley

The Wheatley Wins 2018 Mayor Design Award – Density by Design

The Wheatley Wins 2018 Mayor Design Award – Density by Design 1466 826 Kristy

We are honored that The Wheatley was recognized for this award. Craine Architecture designed this mixed-use project with 82 for-rent apartments, 14 for-sale townhomes, and a 3,800-square-foot office which Craine Architecture proudly calls home. Context was paramount in design considerations—ensuring that the building sensitively responded to the historic context of the Five Points Neighborhood. It was a pleasure working with our client, Palisade Partners, as well as with Confluence Builders.

Craine Architecture is proud to be involved in three projects in the historic Five Points Neighborhood of Denver.  These projects include The Lydian, The Brownstones at King Stroud Court and The Wheatley.  The Lydian’s framing is almost complete, which you can see from the photo below.  The Brownstones and the Wheatley have both been completed, and the latter is home to our new office.  We cannot say enough about this wonderful neighborhood!  We love it here, and have met some fantastic people who continue to teach us about the history of this amazing spot in Denver.  We are in awe of the historical significance of this beautiful community and we work each day to show deference and pay tribute to a community we love.  If you want to learn more about Five Points click here.

Come grab a bagel at Rosenberg’s, a beverage at Coffee at the Point or 715 Club,  or a pastry at The Rolling Pin Bakery.  Or if you want the real treat that tips its hat to the history of the neighborhood, come check out the Jazz Festival every May.  You can close your eyes and conjure up images of the days when The Harlem of the West (as it was called) was brought to its feet by performances of some of the greatest jazz musicians of all time (Billie Holiday, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington, to name a few!).   If you cannot wait until May, click here to a link to The Five Points Business District walking tour.
