Those cranes you sell all over the Downtown Denver and the Front Range are building condos, apartment buildings, new homes and more. Find out what's going up!

The latest report from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors confirms what we already know:
There is no shortage of luxury condos in the Mile High City.
Denver is building its way out of the housing crisis—at least for those who can afford luxury condos. The latest Denver Metro Association of Realtors report shows there is now 5.6 months of inventory of attached units worth between $750,000 and $1 million, meaning with Denver’s supply and the current rate of purchasing, it would take that long for every luxury condo on the market now to sell.
This is significant—if you’re wealthy and don’t need a yard—because it means the tables have turned in this subset of Denver housing. At long last, buyers of condos in the urban core have…

Denver Water wants to get rid of the last of the old lead pipes that still connect upwards of 90,000 Denver homes to the city’s main waterline.
They would be replaced with copper lines over the next 15 years, at a cost of over $500 million.
And Denver Water is on a deadline to get something done. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has directed Denver Water to add something called “orthophosphate” to the system by March 2020. Orthophosphate creates a coating inside service lines, which prevents the leaching of lead.
But Denver Water wants to avoid that solution, and is proposing an alternative solution.
“[Orthophosphate] creates environmental impacts to watersheds, and ultimately doesn’t solve the root cause of the…

You'll soon have a new lane up driving up to the mountains - Officials hope it eases your traffic headache.
Governor Jared Polis and Colorado transportation officials broke ground Thursday on the project. It's converts a shoulder lane to an express toll lane on 12 miles of westbound I-70 near Idaho Springs. The project is aimed at increasing safety and decreasing travel time between Denver and the central mountains.
"The eastbound additional lane has been a great success in reducing traffic for people returning back to the metro area after a weekend in summer or skiing. We expect similar improvements for this westbound lane," Polis said.
A private contractor will convert the shoulder to an express toll lane for use during peak travel times,…

Denver Westsiders can now get a city-funded boost to build wee homes next to their big homes.
The City Council OK’d half-a-million dollars to help people build ADUs.
The Denver City Council signed off on an agreement Monday that provides $500,000 for westside residents to build guest homes on their property.
Accessory dwelling units, also known as granny flats, are smaller homes built next to bigger ones. Owners can lease them out (or live inside while renting out the main house). ADUs give people a new way to make money and can temper displacement wrought by gentrification, city staffers say. They also encourage multigenerational living.
City planners want to see more accessory dwelling units, but they’re expensive — more than $200,000 on…

If you live pretty much anywhere in the Denver metro area, cranes and new developments seem to continue to be popping up everywhere.
According to this Denver Business Journal study, though, there are a handful of nearby cities that are experiencing the most growth:
In March 2018, cities in the Denver metro issued 3,266 new building permits for private housing units, reaching a high not seen since May 2001, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
That number has fallen in the months since, but as new home construction heats up in the suburbs, we asked the largest homebuilders in the Denver metro to list the cities (up to five per firm) where they're planning the most expansion in 2018. Seventeen of the 21 firms on the List…

In 2040, nearly 900,000 people could live in Denver.
That’s the assumption behind a far-reaching set of plans that the city government introduced this morning. Together, they represent the government’s strategies for its next 22 years of growth, covering parks, transit and development.
The figure at the heart of all this — 894,000 residents — would represent a 21 percent expansion of Denver’s population.
“The reality is, this is our forecast and our projection. We don’t know to what level we will accomplish our forecasted numbers,” Mayor Michael Hancock said in an interview. “Our responsibility today is to plan for the future.”
The exact number will change with inevitable booms and busts. But the projection is part of a vision that will…

Restaurateur Frank Bonanno's Denver Milk Market will make its public debut with a weekend full of food, freebies and fun
Construction of nearly every kind is stirring up dust inside the vast, sprawling space on the Dairy Block downtown that will soon become Denver Milk Market, a multi-concept market in LoDo that shares some similarities with the Denver Central Market, Zeppelin Station and Avanti Food & Beverage. There's one big difference at Milk Market, though: While the other food halls have gathered multiple independent purveyors under one roof, all sixteen food counters and bars inside this one will be run by chef/restaurateur Frank Bonanno.
Milk Market takes up the quadrant of the Dairy Block closest to the corner of 18th and Wazee streets,…
