2320 Colfax Perspective

38th Street and 28th Avenue (3828)

Project Description: 3828 will be the first building to be implemented of a larger 38th Street Station plan. When complete, the plan willl create new public plazas, housing options, commercial space, and serve as a better-utilized transportation hub.

The first building will be located on the south side of 38th between 28th and 27th, two blocks west of the station and across the street from the very successful Northbound Smokehouse and Brewpub. The site is made up of two remnant sites along 38th plus a one story commercial building and duplex on the west side of 28th Street south of 38th.

3828 takes green development to the next level.

The building starts on recycled urban land close to transit and services. It is designed to meet LEED certifications with energy saving features such as:

  • above-code insulation,
  • well sealed building envelope,
  • high efficiency mechanical systems with NEST controls,
  • LED lighting,
  • low-flow fixtures,
  • and stormwater filtering.
