30th and Glenarm is an 8-unit condominium project located in Denver's Five Points neighborhood and developed for the non-profit Northeast Denver Housing Center. Initiated by a national competition sponsored by the Northeast Denver Housing Center and the American Institute of Architects, the project was developed from the first place award winning entry by Mark Gerwing.
Located on a formerly single-family lot, this project brought needed density to the neighborhood and helped spur the renaissance of the neighborhood.
Consisting of one handicap accessible unit and 7 double-story units, the project is situated over a secured parking lot and sits at the intersection of commercial and residential streets. The east side of the project, the short side, is located along Glenarm Street and the design echoes the smaller single family houses down the block. Across the street from the long side of the project, the 30th Street side, is a large brick commercial building and the design takes cues from that building.
