Transit-oriented multi-family community breaks ground in Sunnyside

Brinkmann Constructors, along with developer Kalamath Joint Venture, LLC and OZ Architecture, have pioneered a new rental housing community in Kalamath St. 4228 that will bring much-needed rental housing to Denver’s Sunnyside neighborhood. With 117 units, The Ayden offers a mix of one, two and three bedroom floor plans in the fast-growing transit-focused community.

The 132,400-square-foot property is located just a few blocks from the 41st and Fox RTD station and offers easy access to Union Station, Olde Town Arvada, Wheat Ridge, and Westminster. The unit mix at The Ayden is designed to serve a wider variety of residents than the typical urban apartment community, with options for everyone from young professionals to growing families.

The project includes a parking garage with 100 parking spaces and a robust amenities package that includes a bar and lounge area, a fitness center and a dog washing area. Accessible from street level, a courtyard designed by the landscaping team at Dig Studio is reminiscent of the classic courtyard communities common in Denver’s historic downtown neighborhoods.

In addition to OZ’s Urban Living and Interiors practice areas, Fortis Structural, BG Buildingworks, HKS Engineering and Group 14 were among others partners in the project.

In addition to supporting a rich architectural character for the neighborhood, the development further supports the stated goal of the City of Denver to transform this former industrial corridor of the Sunnyside neighborhood into an urban residential area. OZ currently partners with the Sunnyside United Neighbors, Inc. (SUNI) Registered Neighborhood Organization Board to review area opportunities in conjunction with the Near Northwest Neighborhood Planning Initiative

“With the design of this community, we wanted to create an anchor for the Sunnyside neighborhood,” said OZ Associate Principal Matt Chiodini. “We have taken the traditional architectural language of the environment and elevated it for a modern context, maintaining a level of detail, scale and articulation that makes it feel approachable and familiar. Between the design and amenities, the mix of unit sizes and the price, The Ayden is poised to become a unique asset to this neighborhood, and we are excited to see it come to fruition.”
