It’s hard to believe that the original building permits for this Lower Highland gem were pulled over a decade ago – how time flies…
Confluence Heights, located at 2200 W. 29th Ave (on 29th between Vallejo St. and Wyandot St.), offers some pretty impressive northern views of the Asbury Methodist Church, home of the Sanctuary Downtown and amazing Front Range and Downtown Denver skyline to the south and east.
Confluence Heights stands apart from many complexes in LoHi (or Denver’s North Side for my natives) due to the fact that it was one of the last for-sale complexes of this size to be built in the neighborhood – every other complex of this magnitude built after the completion of Confluence Heights has been a for-rent apartment house.
Also, Confluence Heights is one of the few buildings built using a post-tension concrete and steel construction method instead of what we’re seeing nowadays which is a wood frame approach. Although the latter is widely accepted, the concrete and steel approach is far superior when it comes to sound mitigation and overall quality.
Additionally, finishes of the individual units are considerably higher-end compared to what I have seen in the comparable units. Each one of the 24 residential units includes high-end, Berloni Cabinetry from Italy, Villeroy & Boch plumbing fixtures, solid Birchwood hardwood floors, Bosch stainless steel appliances, floor-to-ceiling “storefront” windows, solid Maplewood doors, dual rainfall shower heads, frameless shower enclosures & radiant floor heating in the master bedroom, private balconies, 10ft+ exposed concrete ceilings and commercial grade carpeting.
The building also includes and amazing rooftop deck which is perfect for stargazing, hosting a margarita party or catching the multiple 4th of July firework shows. Confluence Heights also has a strong retail / commercial presence on the ground floor that includes The Green Shirt Dry Cleaning and Pearl Dentistry.
The thing I love the most about this building is its proximity to everything the LoHi neighborhood has to offer. From Confluence Heights one can walk to countless restaurants like Linger, Uncle, Lola, Root Down, Old Major and Z-Cuisine; and plenty of watering holes including Highland Tap & Burger (my personal favorite and THE place to catch a ball game on one of their 16 high-def televisions), Forest 5, Zio Romolo’s Alley Bar (Tuesday night is Grateful Dead / Phish night at Zio’s) & Classic Tavern. When it comes to fitness and recreation, one is within shouting distance to LoHi Athletic Club, The Freyja Project, Vitruvian Fitness, the soon to open Fierce45 (which from what I’ve heard will redefine the way we workout), Ashland Recriation Center & indoor pool, Hirshorn Park and great access to miles and miles of jogging and bike trails. One also has access to the Highland Pedestrian Bridge connecting you to Union Station, and all things (LoDo) Lower Downtown Denver.
Overall, Confluence Heights truly is a great option for anyone looking to own in Denver’s best neighborhood in a high quality, highly appointed, maintenance-free property.
