Lamar Station Crossing is the first multifamily complex to be conveniently constructed alongside the RTD’s recently completed West Rail Line of its light rail transit system. Lamar Station Crossing is also the first housing development to be built in Lakewood, Colorado’s Two Creeks neighborhood in over four decades.
Lamar Station Crossing is a 4-story, 110 unit complex comprised of a mixture of market-rate and income-restricted housing. It offers 1, 2, and 3 bedroom options, as well as 5 live/work apartments that line the ground floor of the building. Lamar Station Crossing appeals to families, seniors, students, and young professionals. The units range from the 530 square foot live/work apartment to the 1,020 square foot 3-bedroom apartment.
Lamar Station Crossing boasts a number of environmentally-conscious features that help to reduce the property residents’ impact on the environment. The building’s roof is covered almost entirely by a 78kW solar photo-voltaic system that is expected to provide approximately 14% of the building’s annual energy needs; the remaining power will be provided by wind energy credits.
