DENVER — Construction has started on a new housing development in Denver’s Jefferson Park neighborhood that will take up a full city block formed by 26th Avenue, 27th Avenue, Alcott Street and Bryant Street.

Denver-based company Grand Peaks owns the land, which will soon be turned into a large apartment building.

The latest development plan submitted to the City of Denver calls for a 15-story multifamily building with 530 units.

The development will include nearly 200 studio apartments, 238 one-bedroom apartments, and 103 two-bedroom units.

The building will also include more than 550 parking spaces.

The area where this development will be located was once home to La Loma, a popular Mexican restaurant.

A few years ago, La Loma relocated to a space on Broadway.
