About the residence
Standing tall along Colorado Boulevard is the legacy project of developer Vincent Rieger. Built in 1962, The Wellshire Arms was a visionary design that pushed the boundaries of what apartment living, and development, could be. Each unit features open floor plans, walk-in closets, floor to ceiling glass and nearly 300 square feet of outdoor living space. The Wellshire is a testament to the timeless principles of modern design and the developer who was willing to take risks and think outside the box.
Parking & transportation: Street parking is available in the neighborhood and along East Dickenson Place. There is currently no on-site parking due to construction. As always, we encourage the use of public transportation, Lyft or Uber – thank you.
