Two developers behind One River North, the so-called “living structure” being built at RiNo, now have their sights set on an adjacent site.
Earlier this week, the city received a concept plan proposing a 16-story apartment building at 3911-3963 Walnut St. near 38th and RTD’s Blake Station.
The document lists the developer as Denver-based Wynne Yasmer Real Estate, which is developing the adjacent One River North building across the driveway at 3930 Blake St. with Uplands Real Estate Partners and The Max Collaborative, two companies formed by members of the founder. families of Forest City Realty Trust.
Renderings of this 16-story building show some sort of random notch on the northwest facade of the greenery-filled structure.
Wynne Yasmer co-founder KC Yasmer said the second project will be a partnership between his company and Uplands. He declined to comment further.
The 0.93-acre Walnut Street property is owned by developer Mike Mathieson of Forbes Partnership, who paid $3.5 million for it in 2015, records show. The site currently houses industrial buildings. Mathieson declined to comment.
Plans for the building call for 359 units and approximately 12,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. There would be 375 parking spaces in the basement and on the second floor.
It is unclear whether the second building would feature structural or architectural flourishes to rival One Rival North. Concept plans are a preliminary proposal and the document only contains basic drawings showing the scale of the proposed structure.
Davis Partnership Architects is listed as the architect on the plans for the latest project. The firm is the executive architect of One River North, but the Chinese firm MAD Architects is the design architect for this building.
Wynne Yasmer, Uplands and The Max Collaborative are also currently building an apartment complex near the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora.
