Golden Triangle’s New Luxury Apartments

MDP Engineering Group provided full mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design services for The Parq on Speer, Denver’s new, luxury apartment community in the Golden Triangle neighborhood. Because Denver has such a burgeoning rental market, developers must go beyond traditional amenity offerings to remain competitive. Therefore they must bring a fresh approach to apartment living by offering residents a holistic lifestyle opportunity. Greystar, the developer of The Parq on Speer has done just that. Now residents can shop, take their dog to the park, catch a tan at the pool, and meet friends for dinner without leaving their block.


Project Details

The 16-story, 493,117 SF concrete structure houses just over 300 studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom residential units. Residents of The Parq on Speer will be able to enjoy over 12,000 SF of amenity space including:

  • Club Room
  • Aqua Lounge
  • Fitness Center with Yoga Studio and Spin Bike Room
  • Elevated Dog Park, Grooming Spa, and Doggie Vending Machine
  • Community Room
  • Pool Deck with Mountain Views, cabana lounges, and fire pits
  • Bike Storage

The building was designed with high-end apartments bordering Cherry Creek and core and shell retail spaces designed for a grocery store and restaurants. The top two floors have penthouse apartments which are double the size of standard units. See the Denver Business Journal’s write up on the project here.


Engineering Highlights

  • Shafts from retail through the roof for future grease exhaust and kitchen makeup air
  • Ducted ventilation from DOAS units to every apartment
  • Gas ranges
  • Snow melt system for hot tub deck on 6th floor
  • Combined waste and vent system (ProVent)
  • 16-Story Concrete Structure
  • Central Water Heating System
