Construction on a new nine-story apartment complex broke ground today in the South Eola Neighborhood of the Thornton Park District.
We now know they will be called Artisan 420.
The apartments are just two blocks south of the Paramount and one block north of Star Tower.
The vacant lot next to Lutheran Towers in-between the Paramount and Artisan 420 is planned to be another residential building. That one is a 21-story building called Citi Tower.
Artisan 420 includes ten ground floor live/work artist studios along with three visual art gallery spaces totaling 4,000 square feet.
The live work units include 16-foot ceilings and 14-foot high windows.
An additional 6,000 square feet will likely include a restaurant concept.
A 10,000 square foot amenity deck for the 299 units is on the fourth floor above the garage.
The deck includes a heated saltwater pool, LED shuffleboard, life-size chessboard, competition grade Tailgate Toss tournament courts and a twenty-person poolside. Other amenities include a1,800 square foot fitness center and 2,000 square foot indoor lounge area.
Residents will have access to a 448 space three-story internal parking garage.
The property is being developed by Jefferson Apartment Group and the building designed by Baker Barrios Architects.
The first units are expected to be available for move-in in October 2015.
