Four businesses open shop in redeveloped Five Points building

Developer Nathan Beal has transformed a long-vacant building in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood into a hub for several small businesses.

The 4,000-square-foot building at 2952-2962 Welton Street is now home to Purple Door Coffee, Bulkley Associates, the Unification Point fitness studio and Winter Session leather goods.

"The previous owner was intending to do apartments," says Beal, who left a career in accounting to start St. Bernard Properties, named for his St. Bernard Otis. "He did all the tear-out, so when I bought it it was just studs. I rebuilt the historic storefront."

Beal, who used to live in Five Points, has several other projects in the works for the neighborhood, including an 8,000-square-foot building at 28th and Downing he renovated a few years ago for residential and commercial use.

"I just always thought Five Points had good bones," Beal says. 

Now he's working on plans for new construction of a small mixed-use project that will include two large apartments above ground-level retail on an empty lot next to the Welton Street building, as well as a residential project at 28th and Champa streets.

"We’re just trying to get through the city permitting process," he says.
