The Opus Group® Announces Completion of Verve Luxury Apartments


​DENVER – The Opus Group (Opus) announced today the completion of Verve, a 285-unit, luxury high-rise apartment and retail development in downtown Denver developed in partnership with Amstar.

“Verve exemplifies the dynamic, urban Denver lifestyle and is quickly making its mark on downtown,” said Pete Carlson, senior vice president of Opus Development Company, L.L.C. and interim general manager of the Denver office. “We’re proud to share this achievement with our partners and the community as we look forward to the vibrant culture and lifestyle Verve brings to the area.”

The 10-story, 428,000-square-foot luxury apartment building, located in the heart of Denver’s Lower Downtown neighborhood, celebrated its grand opening by welcoming its first residents on July 16. New residents find themselves in the center of convenience. In addition to the 4,000 square feet of ground-level retail space, Verve offers close proximity to restaurants, retail, entertainment and other urban amenities synonymous with the popular LoDo District and LoHi neighborhoods. 

“Verve’s amenities and mindfulness of the Denver lifestyle is what sets it apart from other luxury apartments today,” said Carlson.

Nearby public transit and pedestrian options, such as the city’s Union Station and Cherry Creek Trail, provide convenient options for commuters and travelers. At home, residents benefit from Verve’s vast amenities, which include three levels of underground parking, an elevated pool deck, balconies with mountain views, bicycle storage and maintenance facility, fitness center, club and lounge rooms and green features. Verve has been designed to achieve LEED Certification.

The completion and sale of Verve is a perfect example of Amstar’s multifamily development strategy. “Amstar seeks to develop high quality rental properties in irreplaceable locations in high demand markets, and Verve is exactly that,” said Amstar Managing Director Kim Sperry.
