Are micro-apartments the next big thing? These smaller-than-average studios feature ultra-efficient design with a kitchen, bathroom and more packed into a unit of minimal square footage, while high ceilings and large windows create the illusion of space.

Rising five stories in the heart of Cherry Creek North, the 37 micro-apartments at Studio 135 were recently completed with a luxurious twist.

Studio 135 has 32 studios, two one-bedroom/one bath units and three two bedroom/two bath units, and boasts two luxurious common spaces for all residents, including a first-floor lounge area with a coffee bar and an expansive rooftop patio. What’s more, three studios are staged as model units with stylish Room & Board furniture, with the option to work with the store to get suggestions about what furniture would work well in specific units.

“One of the most unique elements of this project is our close partnership with Room & Board,” said Barry Hirschfeld, one of the principals of the project along with Lance Gutsch and Kiely Wilson of Pando Holdings. “Design associates carefully selected all common area furniture along with styling select units to showcase how to maximize space, style and comfort. Residents can purchase any Room & Board furniture individually or as a grouping, upon leasing a unit. Or simply walk down to Room & Board a few blocks away to view individual floor plans in their floor planning tool and the design associates can customize the space for each tenant.”

“It’s been a great community partnership and a delight to work on Studio 135 as these micro-apartments are the perfect venue for showcasing our Small Space assortment line of furniture,” said Brooke Allison, GM of the Room & Board Denver store in Cherry Creek North.

Designed for maximum efficiency with curated luxury details, each unique apartment features top of the line Bosch appliances in the kitchen, Corian countertops, engineered hardwood floors, extra storage space, tall windows with low sills, and over 11’ ceilings. Residents will enjoy 24 channels of TV streamed by DISH fiber and one gigabit of Internet in their unit and throughout the common areas.  Most units also have their own washer and dryer and every unit has individual heating and cooling units, which is an important safety measure in the COVID-19 era.

“We understand that safety and cleanliness are incredibly important at this time and so in addition to the individual heating and cooling units in each apartment, we have also hired two live-in CO-Directors of Security, Health and Safety for Studio 135,” stated Hirschfeld.  “Their jobs are to conduct comprehensive, daily cleanings in the common areas and to be on deck to satisfy the needs of residents.”

The first-floor common reception area has several TV lounge zones, a coffee bar, a bicycle storage room, and a 16-foot workstation countertop while the rooftop deck sports and outdoor common patio area featuring a built-in BBQ grill, a lounge area with TV, dining vignettes, and a cozy fire pit.

Studio 135 is the second micro-apartment project for the principal development team of Barry Hirschfeld and Pando Holdings as they also built the 97-unit residential buildings of Economist at 1578 Humboldt Street in Uptown Denver in 2019. Saiber Saiber is the project architect and GH Phipps is the project general contractor.
