Another apartment complex was proposed by RiNo along Brighton Boulevard.

McCaffery Interests, based in Chicago, presented a concept plan to the city last week proposing a 12-story building with 175 units at 3510 Brighton Blvd. and 3509 Wynkoop St. The company declined to comment.

The first floor would provide retail space along Brighton and five residential / work units along 35th Street. The second and third floors would be dedicated to parking.

According to plans, 170 residential units are to be built on floors four to twelve. The 12th floor would also have a roof terrace with a pool.

The project would take advantage of a zoning overlay district around RTD’s 38th and Blake stations that would allow developers to build taller than zoning would normally allow in exchange for accommodating restricted-income units. The proposed project would be planned to require 13 such units.

McCaffery is also a partner in the six-story T3 office building slated for 3600 Blake St. in RiNo with Hines and Ivanhoe Cambridge of Houston. In February 2020, the companies celebrated the groundbreaking for the project, but then held back with the actual start of construction due to the coronavirus pandemic.

McCaffery does not yet own the land for his planned apartment complex. The parcels are owned by Denver Spring Investors LLC, a Denver-based subsidiary of Tributary Real Estate, which purchased them for $ 2.5 million in early 2016.

Denver Spring & Suspension, a truck repair facility, was operating on the site prior to selling in 2016. Colorado Food Trucks And Restaurant Equipment has been using the space more recently.

The location is opposite the Catalyst office building by Koelbel & Co.
