the evolution of urban luxury
As the saying goes, good things come in threes. Case in point, a trio of milehimodern’s newest developments that are evolving the Denver skyline from Mayfair to LoHi.
Enter: Parkview Residences, Ella CityHomes and Lighthouse Lofts.
Each exciting new development is designed with distinguishing features. Here’s an exclusive insider look at design-forward dwellings launching in 2020.
“Parkview will blend a hip urban farmhouse aesthetic with an uber attainable price point from the 300s. There’s absolutely nothing like it in the city, and we’re excited to be representing these innovative townhomes.”

Nestled amid the radiant cityscape and rolling foothills is Lakewood, where dwellings of historical merit are juxtaposed with modern developments thanks to a recent revival. The evolution of this (sub)urban enclave has not only reinvented the downtown but has given a home to an array of restaurants, breweries, coffee lounges, art galleries, entertainment and shops along 22 blocks.
This ideal location is close to downtown Denver, bustling Belmar, the RTD light rail and boasts easy access to the highways leading to the Front Range—the gateway to outdoor adventures. With recreational lakes, hiking and bike trails and groomed parks conveniently nearby, Lakewood embodies the best of both worlds as an urban and suburban neighborhood. This flourishing setting is where 45 townhome residences call home. The urban backdrop sets the stage for dwellings decked in modern farmhouse aesthetic created with sustainable, renewable materials. Eco-driven elements and natural textiles keep a dialogue with what guides the look—the countryside.

These townhomes pay homage to bucolic settings, pastoral paradises and pure country living—down to harmony with nature. The timeless shiplap facades—a hallmark of the modern farmhouse look—set the homey tone that makes its way into the interiors full of charm with a minimalist slant. The contemporary backdrop is laced with rustic touches that comprise each of the four finish options. Think subdued neutrals, reclaimed wood, nature-inspired textiles, lustrous brass fixtures and mixed metals. The crisp, clean aesthetic showcases beauty in simplicity and tradition with a twist.
Each townhome was intentionally designed to live in harmony with nature, with layers of eco, energy-efficient amenities. From the self-sustaining community garden to renewable materials and energy-efficient systems, each example promotes the future of eco-conscious design down to the convenient location.
Parkview Residences is produced by Urban Green Development, whose ethos is creating communities that work in tandem with the environment. Four distinct floor plans range from 2-3 bedrooms, 2-4 bathrooms, 1-2 car garages and 1,238-1,550 square feet. All conceptualized to have airy atmospheres that thrive with daylight and fashioned with modern farmhouse design with an option of 2-3 designer finishes.
“This is a neighborhood Denver has never experienced before — centered around four acres of green space. Retailers include a brand-new celebrity-owned gym and a new coffee/wine bar concept from the makers of Coohills. Residents will start their day energized with a shake from Clean Juice, stop in for a blow out at Fluff Bar, shop at designer boutiques and enjoy lunch at one the many options at their disposal — all within steps from their front door. Life at Ella CityHomes is unparalleled.”

Ella is part of a brand-new walkable city center, unlike any other in Denver. Picture tree-lined streets, open parks and community courtyards that provide a park-like ambiance that is just minutes to the bustling city center. Urban living has never been more appealing.
Each of the 35 residences is designed to incorporate outdoor living space, abundant natural light, contemporary design and modern amenities. Select between two refined packages of fixtures and finish styles—either grey or taupe.
Ella residences are designed by Oz Architecture, which has been established in Colorado since 1964.

“Lighthouse Lofts is introducing a new era of ownership to Denver. It will be the first of its kind to offer hospitality real estate that is purposefully built, designed and licensed for home-sharing. It will also be the only LEED Platinum designed condo building in the lower Highlands neighborhood.”

This desirable neighborhood provides a mix-use community lifestyle along quiet, tree-lined streets next to the Mile High skyline.

Perched on the corner of Zuni Street and 29th Avenue, this five-story hotel-condo building will pronounce a critical entry into the Highlands neighborhood. The building’s form is utilitarian in nature—designed to provide functional interior spaces with easy access to the outdoors. Large patios allow room for dwellers to stretch out, while the rooftop terrace offers a gathering space to sit and enjoy panoramic views to the city and mountains beyond.
From the pedestrian point of view, the wooden lattice structure appears to grow from the grade plane, weaving its way up and around the building to the fifth story balcony and creating a buffer between the busy street and the residences above. The warm, natural qualities of the massive timber beams create a sculpture-like presence that can be appreciated by both passers-by, visitors or residents alike.
Urban Green makes its way into LoHi with its sustainable development. With LEED Platinum targeted designation, these 46 urban residences are located near it all. Offering a variety of floor plans to fit any lifestyle, these studios, 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms plans feature finishes from Porcelanosa with sustainable and renewable materials.
Underlying all design decisions is a sensitivity to the environment and a goal of attaining LEED Platinum accreditation. In utilizing photovoltaic panels, high-efficiency appliances and water fixtures, smart thermostats and a tight building envelope, the project has the potential to set a new paradigm for development in Denver and beyond.
