n development, everyone is looking for

an advantage. What can be offered that

no one else has and/or how can what

everyone else has be offered in a way

that is new, different and more appeal-

ing. On the whole, Denver has what

few other cites do – year-round fantastic

weather; immediate access to one of North

America’s premier outdoor playgrounds;

an easygoing vibe; a healthy love of dogs;

and, on the grand scale of American cites,

at least the remnants of affordability.

“Denver is a wonderful multifamily de-

velopment market,” says Walter Armer,

vice president of Broe Real Estate Group,

developers of the new 32-story Coun-

try Club Towers II and III. “Even though

there is some saturation right now with

all the new construction, Denver will al-

ways have long-term upside as a delight-

ful place that people want to live.” As, the

name suggests, the new Country Club

Towers II and III extend an existing prop-

erty, an apartment community that has

long been a part of the NorthWashington

Park neighborhood fabric.

Located south of First Avenue off Down-

ing Street, the original Country Club Gar-

dens apartments were built in 1942, a large

collection of single-, two- and three-sto-

ry brick buildings perched on a slight

hill above the Denver Country Club’s golf

course. In the 1940s, developers broke Den-

ver’s traditional street grid with Country

Club Gardens, which instead spans four

full blocks east to west, forming a super-

block. In the mid-80s, Broe removed a few

buildings on the southwest corner and

carefully inserted Country Club Tower
