Metropolis Apartments | Complete Building Renovation

1011 Colorado Blvd. | Denver, CO


This 71-unit high-rise, originally built in 1971, was transformed into a metropolis-worthy structure when Boutique Apartments acquired it in 2008. Renovations included higher-end finishes and space-saving designs that qualified this building as a Boutique Apartments Luxe™ property. The design theme was highlighted with custom wall murals on each of the 12 floors representing a major metropolis, including New York City, London, New Delhi and Sydney.
