McWhinney Unveils Premium Amenities and Views in the Heart of Denver’s River North

DENVER (Feb. 1, 2024)FoundryLine, a 17-story lifestyle-driven and luxury apartment community in Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood, opened and has been successfully leasing since autumn 2023. The community, developed by Colorado-based real estate investor and developer McWhinney and joint venture partner, PGIM Real Estate, includes 348 elegant apartment homes ranging from studios to three-bedroom penthouses. The project team also included Craine Architecture (architect), AvroKO (interior designer) and Hensel Phelps (general contractor). FoundryLine features stunning views of the Rocky Mountains and Denver skyline, luxury finishes and smart home technology. The community is adjacent to the 38th and Blake Regional Transportation District A-line rail station and also includes ground-level restaurant and retail space.


“We are excited to see community flourishing at FoundryLine,” said Kirsty Greer, McWhinney executive vice president of multifamily and built-to-rent. “With its prime location in RiNo and proximity to mass transit, downtown and the mountains, the apartment homes are quickly filling and adding to the vibrance, culture and energy the RiNo Arts District is known for.”

Arts and culture are prevalent in every McWhinney project with a percentage of the project’s cost being dedicated to supporting local arts and culture. FoundryLine’s art installations pay homage to Denver’s jazz and hip-hop history and complement the vibrance of the surrounding arts district. The art program includes a large mural on the building’s exterior completed by muralist James Bullough as part of the Denver Walls Festival presented by the RiNo Arts District.

McWhinney is also committed to sustainable design. With everything from smart thermostats and Energy Star appliances to bike storage and electric vehicle charging stations, FoundryLine is no exception.

Of the 348 apartment homes, 30 are designated as affordable units offered to qualifying residents who meet the income requirements set by the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority. Creating memorable communities that include housing at a variety of price points aligns with McWhinney’s focus on positive impact and creating great places—places with meaning and places that last—for people.
