New Image of Denver’s RiNo District Defines Future of Dynamic Neighborhood
Denver, CO —The River North Art District (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver is undergoing a significant transformation from industrial corridor to a thriving artistic, eclectic, mixed use destination. In a new rendering, OZ Architecture collaborated with more than a dozen fellow design firms and developers to assemble the first all-encompassing view of what this neighborhood’s redevelopment is shaping up to be.
The Brighton Blvd. corridor is quickly becoming one of the most unique areas in the entire city and a hot spot for both urban infill and adaptive re-use opportunities. The rendering evokes the vision of what RiNo will look like in 2020, just four years from now.
In addition to the many notable developments in RiNo that have been recently completed, such as Industry, a number of craft breweries, restaurants and offices, there are at least 15 significant projects underway by OZ, and other architecture and design firms. Additionally many more projects are in various early planning stages.
“The enormous investments into RiNo will continue the redefinition the neighborhood into a sought-after location to create, live, visit, explore and work,” said Rebecca Stone, Managing Principal of OZ Architecture and one of the city’s design leaders of the RiNo renaissance.
“RiNo is much more than the sum of its parts because each new project, and every carefully renovated existing building, is helping create this very distinctive and compelling sense of place, unique unto itself,” continued Stone. “This neighborhood gives Denver an artistic, walkable, creative, diverse and innovative nerve center rivaling and at the same time, unique from, every world-class city.”
