For years, the Coors Field area was known for just that, Coors Field. To the west and southwest of the ballpark is the famous LoDo; consisting of shops, restaurants, and trendy lofts. But what was to the north and northeast of Coors Field? Well, the answer is simple: parking lots. But all of that is slowly changing. The Ballpark neighborhood has seen a dramatic makeover with new residential complexes springing up, accompanied by bars and restaurants. The residents and developers in this area are keen on reclaiming and revitalizing it, and this movement has no end in sight. The newest project, Legacy 22nd, is a 6-story, 212 unit apartment complex, developed by Legacy Partners. A trendy façade, innovative design, and a great location is all this complex needs to be the next big living place in downtown Denver. The Denver Infill blog offers complete renderings from the project’s architect, KTGY. The project is in the final stages of city approval and is expected to break grounds in late 2012 or early 2013.
