Wellshire Arms sells
When the Wellshire Arms Apartments opened in Observatory Park a half-century ago, it was an instant landmark.
The 12-story building was the tallest building in southeast Denver and sported features such as floor-to-ceiling windows that were unheard at the time.
The Denver office of ARA recently sold the building for $12.5 million and the new owner plans to spend another $3 million on it.
