Development of Colorado LEED Gold-Designed 55+ Res Community Well Underway


Vita, a LEED Gold-designed 55+ mixed-use residential rental apartment community under construction in the Denver Metro area is nearing completion. The sustainable apartment community developed by Denver-based Zocalo Community Development and designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning provides quick access to walking/biking trails, art galleries, antique shops, specialty shops, clothing boutiques, and trendy and quaint restaurants and bars in historic Downtown Littleton, CO.

Located on the eastern edge of Downtown Littleton at 2100 West Littleton Blvd, the age-qualified community is situated just one block from a RTD Light Rail station, providing transportation to downtown Denver and Denver International Airport. Vita features nearly 1k sf of neighborhood-serving retail and restaurant space as well as 159 luxury apartments, including one guestroom and live/work units on the ground floor.

Residents will enjoy Vita’s community amenities including saltwater pool, a year-round hot tub, community garden, pet spa and pet-friendly play park, bike and walking trails, fitness and yoga studios, community and craft rooms, a bicycle maintenance and repair shop, community kitchens, and weekly programmed events. Other outdoor amenities include a fireside lounge, outdoor kitchen and dining area, and an outdoor amphitheater.

The project’s architecture features clean, modern lines and quality materials. The brick facades facing the neighborhoods present a dignified townhome expression, while the colors, geometric forms and rooflines of the train track’s side break-up the massing in a dynamic composition, expressive of movement.

“The ground-floor retail activates the street and there are also several distinct and elegant interior and exterior gathering spaces where residents can engage and connect while enjoying the panoramic mountain views,” notes Terry Willis, AIA, LEED AP and managing principal in KTGY’s Denver office.

Vita’s spacious and thoughtfully designed one- and two-bedroom floor plans ranging from 701 sf to 1.5k sf feature designer finishes, Energy Star® stainless-steel appliances and high-end kitchens with gas ranges. Residents can effortlessly entertain their guests or dine al fresco on their private balcony or patio as the sun sets over breathtaking mountain or city views. Vita offers a guest suite for nightly rental.

Currently pursuing U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold certification, KTGY incorporated a number of green features designed to ensure Vita’s long-term efficiency and sustainability, including a photovoltaic solar array to generate power that is given back to the energy grid, reducing the amount of carbon pumped into the atmosphere; high-performance sink faucets, showerheads, and dual-flush toilets, which use 34 percent less water; and low VOC (volatile organic compounds) paints, adhesives, sealants and carpets with no added urea-formaldehyde, which means improved air quality. Vita is also a 100-percent smoke-free environment.
