River North Properties LLC is planning to develop a LEED Certified, condo/retail project for Denver’s River North ("RiNo") neighborhood. Named Beleza, a Brazilian Portuguese word for "beauty", this luxurious green community is modeled after the Brazilian city of Curitiba. Like Curitiba, Beleza will focus on sustainable lifestyle, eco-friendly development, and planning that cuts pollution and waste while improving the quality of life for residents. It will also have smart amenities, such as biometric fingerprint access, climate-controlled window blinds, power outlets in parking spaces, and digital screen controlled integrated lighting, communications, and A/V systems.
The 14-story building will have residences of various sizes and prices in the range of $405k – $4.2 million.
Beleza will be located at 31st street and Brighton Boulevard near the South Platte River, a site near a proposed light rail station. With direct access to RiNo life, bike trails, walking paths, and the river, Beleza has the potential to be a car-free community.
We’ll keep you posted as more details are released and the project moves along.
