A San Francisco-based apartment developer has proposed an 18-story building that would replace the former home of Turin Bicycles, which was Denver’s oldest bike shop prior to its closure over the weekend.
Carmel Partners — which is currently building projects in RiNo, and recently purchased a site at the edge of LoHi — submitted a concept plan to the city last week proposing the project on 0.71 acres at the northeast corner of 7th Avenue and Lincoln Street.
The proposed structure would replace the one-story 700 Grant St. building where Turin operated through Saturday, as well a one-story building at 726 Lincoln St. that is home to City Bakery Cafe. The remainder of the site is used for parking. The project would not require a rezoning.
A local Carmel executive did not respond to a request for comment. The project would have 304 units and 358 parking spaces, according to the plans drawn up by Davis Partnership Architects. There would be about 4,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
