Six city blocks of Denver’s River North Arts District (RiNo) adjacent to the 38th and Blake transit station will be transformed into a mixed-use destination that will include residences, offices and retail space.
Denver-based Tributary Real Estate, in partnership with Charles Street Partners of Boston, has been working with Oz Architecture to develop the master plan and primary residential and retail building designs for the development, dubbed Giambrocco. Gensler is leading the concept design for the creative office building and a boutique hotel and adapting an existing building into a marketplace concept. Wenk & Associates will create design the streetscape and landscape.
“RiNo is Denver’s bustle of commerce, the vigor of production, the incubation of ideas and the freedom of artistic spirit,” says Bill Parkhill, a member of the development team. “As the developers, we’ve embraced these diverse influences to create a neighborhood where it all works together.”
The neighborhood is expected to include:
- More than 500,000 square feet of Class A office space with parking that can be converted to offices over time
- 350 market-rate and affordable apartments spread throughout the development
- Live/work art studios sprinkled throughout the parcels to activate the street
- Retail strategically located in hot spots that serve the surrounding neighborhood
- Public art throughout the project
