Gateway is the second phase of the Sun Valley redevelopment, a mixed-use, mixed-income transit oriented development that is a partnership of Sun Valley Ecodistrict and Denver Housing Authority. Built on a 3.8 acre site, Gateway South is made up of 92 units (1 BR and 2 BR flats) and a fresh food market. The architectural design draws from materials that historically graced the neighborhood, and the vertical change in materials helps to break up the six-story structures and create a more human-scale experience. Circulation space in each building is contained in outdoor walkways, giving each unit a front door to the outdoors, a feature of the site’s historical walk-ups that the existing residents hoped to retain in the redevelopment. Additionally, outdoor circulation lowers both energy costs as well as building costs, allowing more resources to be allocated to the unit interiors, the homes of the residents.
Gateway South is designed to Enterprise Green Community standards and feature bike garages, bike repair stations, environmentally-friendly and healthy interior materials, an extensive PV solar array, and green roofs.
