Project Website: Epoque Golden Apartment Community
Epoque Golden is a luxury apartment community offering a modern, one-of-a-kind living experience for working adults and recent retirees. Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the scenic property offers numerous recreational activities, including access to hiking, biking and walking trails, with shopping, entertainment and medical resources just two miles away in downtown Golden, Colo. The affluent 55+ apartment community was created for adults seeking an urban setting with minimal maintenance; a comfortable space with access to convenience resources; and a culture of wellness-minded adults in pursuit of an active, healthy lifestyle. With the property’s location and target resident in mind, Epoque Golden was designed to combine modern luxury and nature into one cohesive community. Views of the Front Range and Table Mountain are central to the design. Each apartment features nearly floor-to-ceiling glass in the main living space, as well as oversized bedroom windows. Nearly all of the 120 apartments have balconies or patios that enhance the residents view of the surrounding area and connection to the outdoor environment. Modern living spaces offer open floor plans, high-end finishes and ample storage. In addition, resort-style amenity spaces — including a great room, pub/game room, fitness studio, outdoor gathering space, and a pool and spa — create a sense of community among neighbors. The community’s lifestyle program also builds on the property’s amenity spaces — offering services such as pet care, fitness classes, financial resources, guided excursions and modern conveniences like grocery delivery and car service — to create a truly unique, luxurious living experience.
