akin Tennyson Tops Out in Berkeley

Revesco Properties and Alpine Investments (RPAI), along with Pinkard Construction and Santulan Architecture, announced today that they have topped out at akin Tennyson. Located at the corner of 46th Ave. and Tennyson St. in Denver's Berkeley neighborhood, the new mixed-use development project will offer an elevated and welcoming living experience that blends with the neighborhood’s local culture.

On track to be completed by the end of 2024, akin Tennyson will feature 8,500 square feet of restaurant and service retail space, 97 covered parking stalls, and 84 upscale residential apartment homes with sought-after amenities. These amenities include a nearly 2,000 square foot ground-floor retail patio space, a large resident rooftop terrace with sweeping mountain views, three resident courtyards with various programming and seating areas, a state-of-the-art lobby with a pool table, coffee bar and fitness center, and custom art pieces from local artists.

According to Pinkard’s Project Manager Derek Stathis, “The rooftop amenities are some of the most impressive I've ever seen, with two massive built-in hot tubs, multiple fire pits, a deluxe outdoor kitchen, outdoor televisions, and sweeping views of Berkeley Park and the Rocky Mountains. It’s a challenging build, but it’s going to be an incredible place to live, and we're all going to be proud of it when it’s done.”

Stathis explains, “It is a very tricky project in the way it's designed and built, with a complex exterior skin that adds a ton of exterior details and material types,” noting the additional challenges inherent in a tight, lot-to-lot site on two major streets with very little access.

To mitigate the project’s impact on the neighborhood, Pinkard has maintained an information plan to provide updates on street shutdowns and other work affecting residents. “We are trying to be really good neighbors and minimize any inconveniences,” said Stathis. Over the holidays, Pinkard Safety Manager Dave Ruddy dressed as Santa Claus for the daycare across the street. More recently, Pinkard assisted Centennial Elementary by providing a forklift to unload new bike racks, allowing the school to order additional racks with the money saved.

“The vision for this development is not only to provide a place to live but also to create a place for community gathering at the northern end of Tennyson Street,” says Kevin Cosgrove, Manager of Construction & Development, with Alpine Investments. “We are grateful to the many partners involved in bringing our vision to this stage and look forward to the successful completion of this project.”

akin Tennyson is the second of four upcoming RPAI projects that will operate under the akin (“uh-kin”) brand, geared toward a sophisticated, 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.

This past February, RPAI and Pinkard Construction topped out on akin Golden Triangle. Boasting 98 multifamily units and amenities, the 12-story luxury boutique high-rise in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood is also anticipated to finish by the end of the year.
