Park Place at Olde Town

Park Place at Olde Town

Overview

As the commuter rail arrives in Olde Town in 2016, the demand for commuter-focused, pedestrian-friendly housing will emerge. Park Place Olde Town is designed to be a high quality, upscale, market-based multifamily apartment project. Its design includes urban contextual concepts intended to bring exceptional rental housing to Olde Town Arvada. 


This 153-unit, five-story, elevator-served building project will have one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. Four building masses surround three second-level courtyards. Parking for Park Place Olde Town will be both under the building at grade level and in an open parking area to the east or in the back of the building. Siting for the building will be on a 2.89 acre tract of land that is east and adjacent to the historical McIlvoy Park, west of the Wadsworth Bypass and south and adjacent to Ralston Road, oriented on a north/south access and parallel to the Park’s eastern edge. 


Park Place Olde Town will encourage and emphasize bicycling and will include a bicycle maintenance facility and extra storage for bikes and other outdoor gear. This future "green" building design will make for a healthier Arvada citizen who walks rather than drives to the abundance of restaurants, retail shops and services in Olde Town. Residents of Park Place Olde Town will be able to use their cars less because of transit-oriented development, which will help reduce the carbon footprint--a benefit to all.
