akin Tennyson: Curated Urban Living Breaks Ground in Berkeley
Revesco Properties and Alpine Investments (RPAI), Pinkard Construction, and Santulan Architecture announced today that they have broken ground on a new mixed-use development project in Denver's Berkeley neighborhood. The project, akin Tennyson, will offer a hip and welcoming living experience that blends with the neighborhood’s local culture.
akin (“uh-kin”): A versatile collection of high-touch urban apartments embracing vibrant localism at the heart of Denver’s most beloved pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods.
akin Tennyson will feature 8,500 square feet of service and restaurant retail and 84 upscale residential apartment homes with sought-after amenities, including a unique ground-floor outdoor community space, a large, resident rooftop terrace with sweeping mountain views, three resident courtyards with various programming and seating areas, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and custom art pieces from local artists. The project is expected to be completed in Fall 2024.
The project is the second of four of RPAI's upcoming projects that will operate under the umbrella of one brand known as akin. RPAI is developing the brand to appeal to a sophisticated, discerning, urban-minded resident while elevating each local neighborhood by creating an elegant and timeless living experience. While exterior and interior aesthetics and amenities will vary per location, each will draw upon the same brand foundation: a distinctly urban recipe of design, wellness, culture, service, and connection to the neighborhood.
"We are thrilled to partner with Revesco, Pinkard, and Santulan on this exciting project that will bring a new level of living experience to the Berkeley neighborhood, one of Denver’s most desirable," said Churchill Bunn, Managing Partner of Alpine Investments. "We believe that akin Tennyson will fill a gap in the market for upscale apartments that cater to the needs and preferences of the modern urbanite."
Mahdi Alavi, a project manager from Santulan Architecture, said: "We are proud to be the architects for this project that will showcase our design expertise and creativity. We have designed akin Tennyson to blend seamlessly with the surrounding environment and culture while offering a distinctive and contemporary aesthetic that sets it apart from other developments."
"This groundbreaking is the result of a lot of hard work from Revesco Properties, Alpine Investments, and Santulan Architecture, and we are excited to build with this great team. This innovative project will bring a new level of luxury and convenience to the Berkeley neighborhood," said Tony Burke, president of Pinkard Construction.
