18th and Market: New Life in LoDo

18th and Market: New Life in LoDo

Designing spaces that reflect their context is at the core of our design process at JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE. As Denver continues to grow, we are doing our part to ensure each neighborhood retains its unique character. After all, that is what attracts people who move here in the first place.  

One of the most distinct neighborhoods in Denver is Lower Downtown (LoDo). Known for its bustling restaurant and bar scene, LoDo’s charming blend of history and modernity attracts people from all different backgrounds. That’s the spirit we have captured in our 18th and Market urban housing project. 

18th & Market is a 302-unit, mixed-use urban housing development located on Market between 18th and 19th Streets in the heart of LoDo. This urban infill, brownfield project is designed to breathe new life into a currently unused piece of land near some of the area’s most popular restaurants and nightlife. 

Providing a graceful transition between the old warehouse district and the Central Business District, this project will add to the neighborhood’s vitality and walkability with more than 15,000 square feet of retail and lobby space.  

Designed with the active urbanite in mind, the 11-story project, developed by Trammell Crow Residential, will include a community lounge, conferencing center, coffee bar, breakout work hubs, game lounge, bike workshop, dog wash and walking area, and fitness center. 

This cornerstone project will celebrate the rich history of what was once Denver’s Holladay Street while providing residents with modern amenities and downtown conveniences like access to public transit. With a rooftop pool, residents will be able to simultaneously enjoy views of the mountains and experience the energy of the neighborhood below.  

The varied masonry used throughout the project carefully articulates the block-long building while reflecting the historic character of the neighborhood with authentic architecture.
