Clayco Plans 13-Story, 200-Unit Apartment Building in the East Loop
The long-vacant large lot between Big Shark Bicycles and Gokul Indian Restaurant at 6103-6131 Delmar Boulevard could be developed as a 13-story, 200-unit apartment building within two years. The Yellow Cab Company building was demolished in 2006 by Josh and Neal Shapiro, owners of Original Cast Lighting. Plans to redevelop the site didn’t get off the ground due to the recession.
The Times of Skinker DeBaliviere profiled the plan in its April-May 2006 issue (image below). The Shapiros rehabbed their building across the street, which now hosts restaurant Tavolo V and offices for Prozess Technologie. The empty lot has languished as filling commercial spaces on the south side of Delmar to the east has proven difficult. There simply needs to be more people living nearby.
At a meeting of the Delmar Commercial Committee today, Jay Case of Clayco presented its plan for a large infill project. Clayco considers the adjacent Delmar Loop MetroLink light rail station a great asset and has successfully developed TOD (Transit-Oriented Design) developments in Denver, which they believe can be repeated here. Their aim to be help build and be a part of a walkable, accessible neighborhood.
