The 56-unit, eight-story Julian Heights condo project recently got a green light from the city of Denver.

Julian Heights is slated to be built near Cheltenham Elementary School, northwest of the West Colfax Avenue and Julian Street intersection. The project is the latest planned for Denver’s changing West Colfax neighborhood.

Denver-based Aussie Developments LLC purchased the property in November 2015 for $2.2 million. Studio K2 Architecture is designing Julian Heights. The Denver architecture firm did not return multiple calls about the project.

Julian Heights will contain ground floor retail spaces and units ranging from 420-square-foot studios with mezzanines to 1,400-square-foot two-level condos, according to K2’s website.

Community leaders in West Colfax are encouraging revitalization of their neighborhood. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is expected to open in the neighborhood in May and anchor the roughly 20-acre area between West Colfax and West 17th avenues being branded as Sloans. The development is less than a mile away from Julian Heights. The condos are replacing a vacant field where it appears a house once stood.
