Student Housing designed by Craine

University Housing Project-Complete!

University Housing Project-Complete! 2560 1920 Kristy

The newest option for student housing at the Colorado School of Mines is complete! We were honored to be a part of this project, designing exceptional spaces in which these extraordinary students can live, learn, socialize and thrive. This university is renowned for its pursuit of excellence in science and engineering particularly as they relate to solving current energy and environmental challenges. Given this, it makes sense that this residence hall is the School of Mines and the City of Golden’s first LEED Platinum project. This distinction comes from the utilization of energy efficient heating and cooling systems as well as rooftop solar panels.

This project delivers 107 suite-style residential units (249 bedrooms) and 4000 SF of commercial space. Students will be able to take full advantage of a breadth of amenities including a fitness center, numerous indoor community spaces, as well as two outdoor courtyards, laundry facilities and a bike maintenance area.

To the first residents of 1750 Jackson: Welcome to your new home, and thank you in advance to all of you who will make this world a better place!

Common Mixed-Use Coming Soon!

Common Mixed-Use Coming Soon! 2560 1440 Kristy

The City of Golden has approved Common, a four story mixed use project developed by Confluence Companies. On this 3.4 acre site, we have designed this 143,541 SF building, replete with co-work, retail and restaurant space on the ground level. This is a unique project that will provide 164 “co-housing” units. Each unit will have a private bathroom and kitchenette, and all residents will have access to full kitchens and common spaces on each floor. The target demographic is the “digital nomad,” a person who wants to live where they work and have easy access to the mountains and exiting commercial amenities already in Gateway Village. A focus for this project was to create design efficiencies which will allow for reduced construction costs, and therefore, lower price points/affordable rents. This $34 million project will break ground this summer, and is estimated to be complete in 2021.

Project Update-The Golden Triad

Project Update-The Golden Triad 3840 2160 Kristy

We have a trifecta brewing in Golden as we were hired to design three buildings nestled together in the stunning foothills outside of Denver, Colorado. This site is being populated with two (36 unit) multifamily residential projects, as well as a four-story boutique hotel. Designing fabulous hotels is one of our favorite things to do here at Craine. Who doesn’t love creating spaces where travelers get to kick back, and get a true Colorado experience with expansive mountain views and unique interior finishes? This project will deliver forty-nine beautiful guest rooms where visitors will be able to pop right outside their door and hit miles of bike trails or enjoy the indoor-outdoor lobby space and bar.

In the images below, you can see the final roof trusses being placed on the first multifamily building, with the CMU cores nearing completion on the second. As I am typing this, excavation for the hotel is happening at a breakneck pace. We will keep you posted as The Eddy hotel goes vertical. If you are planning a visit to Golden in 2021, I just happen to know of a great place to stay.
