Monroe Pointe Condominiums


The new Monroe Pointe condominiums in Denver’s upscale Cherry Creek area utilize 14,000 sq. ft. of .050"-thick aluminum Dri-Design panels finished in Silver Metallic. Dri-Design is an affordable dry joint, pressure-equalized rainscreen system.

The six-story, 69-unit luxury development offers great views of the mountains as well as the downtown Denver skyline. Condo units range in size from 895 sq. ft. to 5,380 sq. ft. for a penthouse. The designer of the $64 million project was Davis Partnership Architects, Denver.

Unlike many urban sites that require a contextual approach, the open Monroe Pointe site allowed an iconic approach to design that could be more free form. The objectives called for a contemporary building that felt rooted in Colorado. Colorado sandstone, quarried only 30 miles from the site, was a natural cladding choice to provide a sense of quality and permanence. To contrast the sandstone, the design team selected Dri-Design panels as a lighter material—both functionally and visually—and to provide the contemporary look.

The Dri-Design panels were installed by Colony Metals, Inc., Commerce City, CO. The general contractor on the project was Swinerton Builders, Arvada, CO.

Dri-Design panels can be made from a variety of materials including painted aluminum, zinc, copper and stainless steel and are 100% recyclable. Panels are available in any Kynar color in both standard and custom sizes.
