DENVER — Dairy Block — Denver’s newest micro-district redevelopment in the heart of Lower Downtown — is thrilled to announce its first retail tenants, an eclectic mix of retailers and cocktail crafters creating a unique experience in LoDo. These retailers will be sprinkled throughout Dairy Block including inside the lobby. Their front doors will open to the alley to create the first vibrant pedestrian-only alley in Denver.
Developed by McWHINNEY, Sage Hospitality and Grand American, Inc., Dairy Block is a mixed-used redevelopment of the LoDo block that once housed Denver’s Windsor Dairy. The soul of Dairy Block will be The Alley – a lively micro-district and experience like no other will run from 18th and 19th between Blake and Wazee Streets.
Dairy Block offers 66,000-square-feet of prime restaurant and retail space. Scheduled to open in the second half of 2017, the first retail tenants at Dairy Block will include:
- Huckleberry Roasters – A coffee and retail market from Denver’s popular coffee company in the Dairy Block Lobby.
- The Perfect Petal – Denver’s popular Highland Square flower shop is expanding with a 2nd LoDo location inside the Dairy Block Lobby.
- Roost – A modern retail space by the founder of the popular Denver Flea marketplace opening onto The Alley, featuring a curated collection of emerging makers and brands from Colorado and across the country.
- Seven Grand –The first Colorado outpost of the popular whiskey bar located off of The Alley will pour a comprehensive selection of premium whiskeys and crafted cocktails, while also featuring live music and pool tables.
Mark Witkiewicz, project manager and McWHINNEY’s senior vice president of commercial development said he targeted “maker tenants,” for the alley, which include chefs and artisans who make or prepare unique products and foods on site. “We want experts at their craft and artistry.”
Dairy Block’s six-story office tower is now open, with CTRL Collective planning to move into the space. Founded in Los Angeles, this will be the first Colorado location for the shared workspace that joins together entrepreneurs, artists, creators, innovators and inventors in a creative concept designed to impact the internal and external community.
Additional new office tenants include the Denver headquarters for McWHINNEY, industrial real estate firm ProLogis, the national headquarters for Italian fast-casual chain Romano’s Macaroni Grill, the downtown Denver office of Equus Software and Cuvee, a luxury lifestyle and travel company.
Also, now open at Dairy Block is The Maven Hotel, an independent, modern hotel delivering 172 industrial-chic guest rooms and an energetic lobby managed by Sage Hospitality, along with Kachina Southwestern Grill and Poka Lola Social Club managed by Sage Restaurant Group.
