|Cypress Equity Investments (CEI) has completed construction on ‘Revel’, a 300-residence, transit-oriented apartment community in Aurora, CO. Located just off I-225 and within walking distance of the 2nd Ave and Abilene Station on Denver RTD’s R light rail line, the category-defining garden-style community provides easy access to I-225, Denver International Airport (DIA), and Downtown Denver.
Designed by award winning architectural firm KTGY, Revel brings a fresh and exciting look to the City Center North neighborhood. In contrast to its more traditional and suburban environment, Revel conveys a modern and urban aesthetic with flat roofs, large lofty windows, projecting steel cable balconies, and a high contrast color palette. The new luxury community consists of five four-story residential buildings and one 2-story clubhouse spread across 8.14 acres with landscaping thoughtfully designed by Norris Design. Revel’s grounds feature native plantings and ample outdoor amenity spaces that provide opportunities for year-round indoor-outdoor living for residents and their pets alike.
CEI was able to build and deliver Revel in phases due to its multi-building garden style layout. Constructed by Colorado-based Brinkman Construction, Revel’s first phase broke ground in Q4 of 2019 and opened to residents in December of 2021.
Revel, located at 291 Dearborn Way, delivers a best of both worlds lifestyle experience – modern resort style living in a relaxed suburban environment, while providing ready access to DIA and major employment hubs, including Downtown Denver, the nearby Fitzsimons Medical Center, Buckley Air Force Base, and Raytheon. The bright and stylish apartments range from studio, Jr. one-bedroom, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom floor plans with floor-to-ceiling windows, a balcony or patio, in-unit washers and dryers, large bathtubs, stainless steel appliances, designer-inspired kitchen backsplashes, quartz countertops, USB combo outlets, and rich wood-style flooring.
With interiors and amenities designed by ESG, Revel features a two-story clubhouse and outdoor recreational spaces where residents enjoy a full suite of resort style amenities. The clubhouse’s floor-to-ceiling windows fill the double volume interior with natural light, highlighting the space’s natural palette of light river rock, light wood tones and organic wall graphics. Key amenities include work-from-home suites, a 24/7 fitness center, a separate fitness-on-demand room, an inviting, high-design club room with spacious events kitchen, a resident lounge with conference space and co-working areas, and a pet spa and dog run.
Outdoor amenities include an outdoor kitchen, a resort-style pool with sun shelf, cabanas, and hot tub, and a private pocket park with activated edges allowing residents a place for passive play and recreation. The garden-style community features a mix of private garages and ample surface and covered parking.
