Development 4 - 7 Stories, For Rent


The Henry


Denver, Colo.

Architect/Designer | KEPHART

Builder | Carmel Partners

Developer | Carmel Partners

Photographer | Shelsi Lindquist Photography

Named after famed Denver artist Henry Read (1851-1935), the architecture of The Henry — with its horizontal lines, two-tone brick, large patterned windows, and broad overhangs — are a nod to the Craftsman and Prairie-style roots of the area. Inside, the Craftman style is present with built-ins and ample amounts of teak, while the light fixtures and furnishings give it a modern flair.

Located in an industrial redevelopment area, the unique geometry of the site and its adjacency to a major highway and light rail lines posed several challenges, in addition to addressing Denver view plane and setback requirements. To overcome these challenges and maximize the resident experience, the building was outfitted with high-quality glazing and was thoughtfully organized to give it a pedestrian scale and connect it with the neighborhood.   Original artwork by Colorado artists is hung throughout the building. To fit the active, outdoor lifestyle of the residents, amenities include a 3,500-sf gear storage/bike room, a 3,000-sf indoor/outdoor fitness center, a1550-sf coworking space, and a large dog park/pet spa. The center of community life is the lush, one-acre park.
