14-story Apartment Complex Proposed at Arapahoe Square Bus Station Site

The Greyhound block isn’t the only central Denver bus station that might be on its way out.

A staffer with Shears Adkins Rockmore Architects submitted an early-stage development proposal to the city this month, calling for a 300-unit project at the northwest corner of 22nd and California streets in Arapahoe Square.

The site is currently home to El Paso-Los Angeles Limousine Express Inc., whose routes generally serve the southwestern United States and Mexico, according to its website.

The plans identify the developer as Scenic Investments.

Forty-seven of the units would be studios. There would be 193 one-bedroom units and 60 two-bedroom units. Plans call for 224 parking spaces, all above ground.

The lots where the project would be built, 2215 and 2243 California St., are 0.75 acres combined. They are owned by B&R California LLC, which is managed by Behrooz Hadgi-Maleki, according to records. He paid about $535,000 for the lots in 1998.

Greyhound’s bus station is located about a half-mile away, closer to the heart of downtown. The company put the station, which spans a full city block, on the market last year, and a Canadian developer submitted plans for two 400-foot towers at the site in early March. For now, however, Greyhound still owns the property.

Other major developments proposed but yet to break ground in Arapahoe Square include New York-based Property Markets Group’s X Denver 3Chicago-based Akara Partners’ Kenect Denver and Denver-based Ubuntu Partners’ 23-story project.
