New Coffee Bar Occupies Rare Drive-Thru Location in DTC
Portland-based Black Rock Coffee Bar recently opened its second Colorado location in the Denver Tech Center. The walk-in/drive-through coffee shop occupies the entire 2,700-square-foot, stand-alone building at 7850 East Union Avenue. Black Rock’s first location is in Castle Rock.
7850 East Union Avenue is also currently up for sale; Newmark Knight Frank Executive Managing Directors Riki Hashimoto and Dan Grooters are the listing agents on the property and are asking $2 million for the property.
Founded in 2008 in Portland, Oregon, Black Rock also has locations in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Arizona and Nevada. Black Rock Coffee Bar’s mission is to intentionally engage with local communities to raise the bar for service, relationships and compassion.
“The property is exceptionally located real estate and we are excited that Black Rock was able to occupy one of two drive-through assets in the Denver Tech Center. The drive-through component has become a very important aspect of food service in the current environment,” said Andy Wolf, senior vice president at Denver-based Sidford Capital, the owner of 7850 East Union Avenue. “Proximate to hundreds of thousands of square feet of office space in the Tech Center and ample surrounding residential, the tenant has an exciting opportunity here.”
“After touring Denver several months ago, our interest was sparked by the Tech Center trade area and the opportunity to occupy one of the rare drive-through opportunities in the area,” said Bobby Kaufmann, vice president of development at Black Rock Coffee Bar. “We are excited to provide drive-through coffee services, and walk-in soon, to the community, residents and employees in the Tech Center area.”
