“Our employees and trade partners have worked extremely hard, especially
through the winter months, to reach this milestone. Topping out was an
appropriate opportunity to acknowledge their efforts before
concentrating our focus on the interior of the building,” said The Weitz
Company Executive Vice President and General Manager Bruce Porter.

Radiant is an 18-story, 329-unit luxury apartment high-rise being
constructed at the entrance of the rapidly expanding Welton corridor
between 21st Street and 22nd Street. The structure, which will span over
486,000 square feet when finished, was erected using post-tensioned,
cast-in-place concrete with slab-on-grade and drilled caisson piers. It
took 30,000 yards of concrete, 140 miles of post-tensioned cable and
1,400 tons of rebar to pour the building’s 18 decks.

Being constructed in a constrained section of the Arapahoe Square
district, Radiant is positioned right on the L Route of the RTD Light
Rail System, which will provide future residents easy access to
transportation.

Other features being built into Radiant include an amenity deck with a
pool and hot tub on the fifth floor; a fitness center and a patio on the
sixth floor; club room on the 17th floor; and a four-level parking
garage.

“Downtown Denver is becoming more vibrant by the day, and we’re thrilled
to join one of Denver’s most emerging neighborhoods,” said Scott
Johnson, division president for LMC. “We believe Radiant’s world-class
design, high-end finishes and unmatched variety of prime amenities will
be a unique addition to the neighborhood and create an unparalleled
living experience for our residents.”

The project, which is being designed by RNL, is scheduled to be
completed in June 2019.
