Emerson Flats is an urban infill multi-family project in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Denver. This vibrant neighborhood consists of Morey Middle School across the street from the site, numerous shops and restaurants as well as healthy lifestyle services all within walking distance. In keeping with the mission of Del Norte, the project provides affordable housing and preserves the neighborhoods historical context by using both masonry and warm wood tones to align with the context of the existing neighborhood. The building consists of a concrete podium with one level of amenity space and parking with four stories of wood framing above. The fourth story steps in 10 feet on each side providing a relationship to the three and four story existing structures that flank the building.


Designed with families in mind, the projects consists of twelve 2 Bedroom / 2 bathroom units, six 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom units, and three 1 bedroom / 1 bathroom units. The units each have large living spaces where family can congregate and spend time together.


The secured parking area under the podium features both bike and stroller storage. A shared laundry facility located on the first floor provides an opportunity for tenants to get to know one another. The community space with kitchen offers a place where tenants can gather to learn new skills through classes offered by Del Norte. Through community involvement and integration into the existing urban, fabric Emerson Flats is a positive contribution to the neighborhood.
