Best New Condo Project in Denver

Leading the way in green development, Zocalo Community Development has struck Gold; LEED Gold certified that is. Zocalo's newest planned development at 2020 Lawrence Street in downtown Denver will be the first residential property in the Rocky Mountain West certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBG).

Here are a few of the green amenities offered:

  • Preferred parking for owners w/ hybrid vehicles
  • European-style, dual-flush toilets
  • Photovoltaic solar energy -- estimated to cut unit power bills by around $250 a year.
  • E-switches -- by hitting the e-switch when a homeowner leaves home, condo owners will shut down most electrical outlets and prevent "phantom" electricity drains.
  • Compact florescent lighting -- uses one-sixth the energy of standard incandescent light bulbs, and doesn't generate as much heat.
  • 50 percent wool carpeting with natural jute backing, which minimizes off-gases.

Zocalo expects to break ground on 20/20 Lawrence in March 2008 and finish in June 2009. The project features 60 residential condos on floors 3 through 8, and retail and parking on the 1st and 2nd level. The development is more than a third sold and I've sold two of the condos personally. Contact me today at 303-561-2457 or at to learn about this development and to get your hands on one of these sweet new residential units.
