LOT Twenty Eight Set to Open Summer 2018 in RiNo
FORMATIV, a Denver-based real estate development firm specializing in mixed-use and commercial projects, announced the brand for its adaptive reuse project in the RiNo Art District. LOT Twenty Eight features 45,000 square-feet of restaurant, retail and event space as well as a 20,000 square-foot outdoor, urban patio designed for gathering, events and community activities.
Formerly a manufacturing plant, LOT Twenty Eight sits at the intersection of 28th and Blake Street. FORMATIV will bring this site back-to-life while retaining the building’s ad hoc patina, an amalgamation of brick, stucco, and metal siding, that has become synonymous with the neighborhood.
“The goal with LOT Twenty Eight is to create a community gathering space; a place that is additive to the neighborhood and inspires connectivity,” stated Sean Campbell, CEO of FORMATIV.
The development includes space for unique food and beverage concepts, gathering spaces, street-facing retail, artist/maker space and an outdoor, urban garden.
The artist/makers space will enable the local creative community to show their work and expand their brand in small and mid-sized “open” rooms that individuals or small groups can rent. Makers will have access to features such as site-wide programming and open meeting rooms to host how-to classes.
There will be 2,300 square-feet of event space, which can be reserved for private, community, or corporate events. When not in use, the space will be programmed as a rotating gallery.
The 20,000 square-feet of outdoor space was designed with programming in-mind, the space features three distinct zones and will be accessible all day.
