Denver’s Solera Apartments Celebrates Grand Opening November 10th


DENVER, CO (October 29, 2010)--Denver’s first LEED Gold rental community, Solera Apartments, will celebrate their Grand Opening on November 10, 2010.

The 120-unit high rise, located on the corner of 20th and Lawrence in downtown Denver, began construction in early 2009 and followed a rigorous set of building standards to reach the U.S. Green Building Council’s second highest level of LEED-certification. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

Already 30% occupied, these brand new downtown Denver apartments have seen steady traffic since opening for pre-leasing in June. In honor of the Grand Opening festivities, Solera is offering limited-time incentives, with up to two months free rent for certain leases.

Boasting solid, sustainable construction and eco-friendly finishes and amenities, these beautifully appointed apartments merge luxury and green living, with loft-style ceilings, large windows, spacious layouts, and incredible mountain and city views.

One- and two-bedroom apartments range from $1,035 to $2,990 per month with flexible seven- to 14-month lease options.

Solera makes it easy to live green with standard sustainable features such as low-e windows, Energy Star appliances, high-efficiency lighting and occupant sensors, dual flush toilets, and programmable thermostats. Each unit also comes with TED, The Energy Detective, a real time power usage display that tracks day-to-day and monthly energy usage, allowing residents to make informed decisions about their energy choices.

“By living in a sustainable apartment, residents can experience savings up to $700 a year on their energy bill compared to similar apartment buildings,” says Solera Director of Operations, Susan Maxwell.

The savings continue when you factor in Solera’s walkable location. Adjacent to the Ballpark Neighborhood, Solera is three blocks from Coors Field, four blocks from the 16th Street Mall, and five blocks from Light Rail. Not to mention the 1,000 retailers and 300 bars and clubs in the neighborhood. According to, Solera’s proximity to shops, restaurants and entertainment make it a virtual “Walker’s Paradise,” with a score of 92 out of 100.

For those who prefer biking, Solera recently unveiled their new Velo Program, which offers on-site bike parking, educational classes, scheduled group rides and events, and the most complete bike maintenance facility in any apartment building in the city. Solera was even named “Bicycle Friendly Business of the Month” for October by BikeDenver and Clif Bar.

To take advantage of Grand Opening incentives, visit the Solera leasing office in the ground-floor lobby, located at 1956 Lawrence Street. Tours of model rental apartments can also be scheduled by calling the Solera Team at 303-381-7777.

Solera is a joint venture between Zocalo Development and 1956 Lawrence Investors, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Principal Green Property Fund, I, LLC. Principal Green Property Fund I, LLC is advised by Principal Real Estate Investors, LLC.
