The condo project is NAVA’s second residential development in Denver.

NAVA Real Estate Development, a Colorado-based development company, announced plans for a new condominium development in downtown Denver’s Uptown neighborhood. Davis Partnership Architects is designing the 12-story, 249-unit building, which is located at 575 E. 20th Ave. NAVA purchased the 1.06-acre site for $7.1 million from the Denver Housing Authority.

“Our next community will be located in Uptown, one of Denver’s most thriving areas, in between the financial district, Capitol Hill and Five Points,” said Brian Levitt, who along with his business partner, Trevor Hines, founded NAVA. “Our building will provide excellent access to downtown, the light rail, employment and entertainment, as well as the many wonderful restaurants in the neighborhood. It is also being designed to achieve WELL Building Certification through the International WELL Building Institute. We are designing the community to be one of America’s healthiest residential projects.”

Davis Partnership Architects is focused on producing welcoming spaces that evoke a natural Colorado setting.

“We are honored to partner with NAVA on this pioneering condominium project in the heart of our city,” said David Daniel, principal at Davis Partnership Architects. “Their dedication to quality in the built environment, as well as our shared belief in the value of placemaking in the community, have led the design to be both bold and conducive to health and will set it apart in the market. Our guiding principles have shaped the project contextually and architecturally, and also opened up a wide variety of floor plans, finishes, and community spaces available to the residents.”

The site will be NAVA’s second residential development in Denver. The firm is developing Lakehouse, a 196-unit mixed-use community located on the south shore of Sloan’s Lake.
