Calling 1311 Cook Home

RedPeak is excited to announce that 1311 Cook is finally ready for new residents! This 40 unit building underwent a comprehensive renovation, starting in June of 2016, and just had itas first residents settle into their apartment last week. Our construction team, with the expertise of Wheelhouse Construction, has been tirelessly working to put the finishing touches on this 5 story gem over the last month, and needless to say, their efforts have paid off.According to RedPeak's Director of Construction, Alan Eathorne, who has been in the business of buildings for over 20 years, "The before and after photos tell the story," he says, pulling up the photo of the front entrance pre-renovation, an antique arched wooden door frame that one could picture pushing on to enter into the captain's quarters of an old pirate ship. Coincidentally, the pirate vibe coincided with the theme of the apartment building when RedPeak acquired the building last year. The building was originally built in 1969 by Roland Wilson, a prominent local architect and developer, who built 20+ other similar buildings in Central Denver in the late 60's and 70's, including two other RedPeak buildings, 515 Clarkson and 1044 Downing. Formerly known as The Captain Cook Apartments, 1311 Cook has been transformed into a handsome and suave structure with 1 and 2 bedroom apartments that all have huge oversized balconies.As the faded treasure chests and heavy crimson curtains came down, the light-filled units quickly came to life, showing off high ceilings, vintage wood burning fire-places, over-sized patios, not to mention the underground parking, and some killer amenities. When asked about his favorite feature of the building, our DOC exclaims, "One of the best features of the building has got to be the indoor/outdoor pool patio area. The idea in mind, was to create a place that encouraged community, a place for residents and friends to convene, in an open-air space that blurs the boundaries between inside and out."1311 Cook is perfectly positioned between City Park and Cap Hill in Congress Park, and has a covetous Walk Score of 85. Whether you want to grab some Mexican food at Mezcal, a pint at Goosetown Tavern, get tickets to see a show at the Bluebird Theater, or grocery shop at Sprouts, most errands and adventures can be done on foot.
