Residents started moving in Nov. 1 to 3535 Grand, a 24-unit apartment building constructed on a vacant lot.

Developer Michael Lander said 10 units are still available, ranging from 645-771 square feet with rents from $1,195-$1,395 per month.

“It’s less than essentially any other new project,” he said.

The project includes 18 surface parking spots.

“Those of us developing are having to reevaluate what the right amount of parking is,” Lander said. “We’re all trying to move to multimodal life, rather than just car only.”

Upon completing the project, Lander said he probably could have filled the building with more of the smallest units — he said they were the quickest to rent, as low as 485 square feet and $895 per month. The same was true at the Motiv Apartments at 24th & Colfax, he said, where two-bedroom apartments were the slowest to lease.

“But I felt it was important to have a diversity of unit types in the building,” he said.
