Bordered by west 17th and 18th avenues and King Street, a new development called FrameWork at
Sloan’s Lake is being built by Jonathan Alpert, whose family has been involved in real estate in the
Denver area for over 50 years.

The development will include 14 townhomes with about 2,000 square feet each, priced at about
$500,000 and eight single-family homes, each featuring about 3,200 square feet, including the
basements, which will be priced at about $600,000 each.

The community will also include a 12,000-square-foot pocket park for the residents. The developer
hopes homeowners will utilize this space for gardening, though will fill the space with something low-
maintenance and doesn’t need much water should no one care to take advantage of it for that purpose.

The homes are being designed by Studio H:T Architecture of Boulder, which has a reputation for creating
homes that not only have cutting-edge designs, but are very eco-friendly. The homes are slated to be
very sustainable and energy-efficient. They’ll also be built to include solar photovoltaic cells and owners
will have the opportunity to lease solar panels instead of buying them outright.

Because there isn’t a huge inventory in this area at this price range the developer expects a lot of young
professionals, either with young families, or planning to start families, as well as empty nesters, to be
drawn to the homes.

Sloan’s Lake offers a wonderful opportunity for builders. In this particular case, the developer anticipates
that most of the buyers will come from a five-mile radius, or will be moving here from out-of-state. The
location is a perfect environment for someone working downtown, because they can be there in minutes.
At the same time, it is quieter and a little less urban than living in LoDo or somewhere else in the city.
