Steam Plant Lofts

Steam Plant Lofts is the creative conversion of the original "Power House" of the Lowry Air Force Base into 14 custom-designed loft-style condominiums. The overall development also includes 9 single-family Patio Homes that complement the historic Steam Plant building. Steam Plant Lofts has six solar power systems. The total power capacity of those systems made Steam Plant Lofts the largest power plant at Lowry in early 2010, restoring the building's historic function as Lowry's Source of Energy. The Steam Plant received Historic Denver's Community Preservation award in 2004 and the Mayor's Design Award in 2009.
