Hyder Completes Detroit Terraces Apartment Building
August 24, 2016
Hyder has completed Detroit Terraces, a three-story, 50-unit, $7.5 million stick frame apartment building at Detroit and Colfax. The City Park neighborhood apartments feature sleek and modern finishes and 35 spaces of underground parking and provide a much needed affordable housing option in central Denver. The units consist of 30 studios, 15 one-bedrooms, five two-bedrooms, and private balconies. The building provides amenities such as roof deck terrace with grill, fire pit, and canopies; a gym/exercise room; a community room with shuffle board, arcade games, flat screen TV’s, and wet bar; additional storage units, bike racks and bike maintenance equipment; and great views of Downtown and the mountains.
Hyder overcame several challenges during the project, including utility relocation and a zero lot line. Relocating the utilities required the team’s thorough analysis of the existing site and conditions, and precise and constant communication with extremely busy utility companies to make necessary modifications. Working on a zero lot line left little room for staging and logistics; to accommodate the site constraints, Hyder mapped existing locations and measurements and meticulously scheduled and coordinated with field crews, subcontractors, inspectors, the local community, and direct neighbors.
At the end of the project, the owner, Brian Toerber with Inspire Investment Group, commented, "Infill projects like the Detroit Terraces require a creative team with deep experience. I choose Hyder Construction and Craine Architecture because of their impressive construction portfolio and experience developing projects with tight lot lines and challenging logistics. I couldn't be happier with how the project turned out but the icing on the cake was the relationship and trust we developed throughout. True professionals!"
