Denver rents may be slightly decreasing, but that doesn’t mean living in Mile High luxury comes cheap. Perhaps one of the best examples of that is the St Paul Collection in Cherry Creek North. These upscale rentals—which range in size from 780 to 2,850 square feet—start at $2,500 and top out at a staggering $15,500 per month.
But St Paul Collection isn’t your average apartment building. Here, the model residence was outfitted by one of the best in the biz—local interiors whisperer Andrea Schumacher—and the posh lobby and resident lounge were tricked out by Denver design firm Styleworks. A cool collection of colorful, contemporary artwork—curated by local art-advisory firm NINE dot ARTS—adorns the hallways’ grasscloth-covered walls; our favorite: one of Denver artist Ian Fisher’s realistic cloud paintings, which hangs in the lounge.

Then there are the 4240 Architecture-designed one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences, plus penthouses, which come with floor-to-ceiling windows; 10-foot-high ceilings; spacious kitchens with waterfall island countertops, stone-tile backsplashes, and Bosch or Thermador appliances; private balconies; and home-automation systems that let residents control lights, blinds, music, and temperature from their smartphones.
Also included in the rent: a 24/7 concierge service ready to help with anything from grocery delivery to last-minute birthday cards; a spacious fitness center; and, atop each of the property’s two towers, rooftops with heated year-round pools, hot tubs, fireplaces, private cabanas, kitchens, and 360-degree views. The towers’ ground floors are home to some pretty great open-to-the-public amenities: the new CB2 store, SoulCycle, and, coming in 2019, an outpost of the chichi Upper East Side bistro Le Bilboquet.
Orchestrating all this luxury is BMC Investments, the Denver-based real estate investment company behind two of Cherry Creek North’s stylish new hotels, the Halcyon and Moxy—which explains why these rentals feel more like five-star hotel accommodations than humble homes. The only downside we see? Money gets you just about anything here—except a deed.
The residential tower at 210 St. Paul Street—the first to open—has limited inventory, with every 3-bedroom unit and all but one 1-bedroom residence leased; a selection of 2-bedroom units are available. The tower at 255 St. Paul Street is currently 17-percent leased and offers a broader selection of available units, though the popular 3-bedroom homes are going fast. For more information, visit stpaulcollection.com or the leasing showroom at 240 St. Paul Street on the garden level.
