New Mexican Restaurant coming to the Neighborhood!!!
 

 


The owner of the old Pisco Sour Restaurant and Lounge property just got back with us and he has leased the space to a restaurant firm. They are going to open a Mexican restaurant at that location at 8501 East Colfax Ave. (Wabash). They currently own three other successful restaurants. As more information becomes available we will let everyone know.
 

New Neighborhood Medical Marijuana Dispensary Opens in Neighborhood!
 

 
The former Green Light Garden Supply building has been reopened by another owner as Organica, a medical marijuana dispensary.

http://organicadispensary.com

It's a transfer of location from a previous place in Denver. They applied for the license transfer last year, and recently completed inspections to open at this new location. It's only a medical center, and the city does not have public hearings for medical establishments. If they apply for a retail/recreational license in the future, there would be a public hearing.

Asian Market in the
East Colfax/East Montclair Neighborhood!

 

 
Located at 8800 East Colfax Avenue at Xenia Street is a unique family market that sells unique Asian food items, many of them Burmese. If you have not stopped in you need to check it out! Step out of your comfort zone and experience a whole other side of cooking!
Here is what some folks have been saying about the market online!

 
"The Burmese-owned grocery called Family Asia Market will tantalize you with its Southeast Asian delights. In the corner, bags of crackers made from shrimp and Cybium (a group of fish including the Wahoo) beckon softly to you. On the rows of neatly-arranged shelves, jars of mimosa and tamarind leaves and bamboo shoots (available with or without Yanang leaf extract) share space with bottles of dark, rich fish sauces and pastes. And in the freezer case, mullets and mackerels play nicely with such quintessentially Burmese products as Su Pout Ywet (acacia leaves), Da Nyin Thee (Jengkol or Luk Niang nuts) and Kaukswe (egg noodles).

Office Hours Change of Location
Dear neighbors,

I host regular “Office Hours” in my district the first three Thursdays of each month from 10 am – 12 pm. In March, I started hosting my “Office Hours” in a new location at Windsor Gardens the second Thursday of each month. For May, June and July I will be in the Centerpoint West Community Room located at 595 S. Clinton St. in the Centerpoint Community Center.

The locations for the first and third Thursday Office Hours will remain the same. Times for all three events are 10 am – 12 pm.

  • First Thursday: Café Steep, 4100 E 8th Ave
  • Second Thursday: *NEW LOCATION* Centerpoint West Community Room, 595 S. Clinton St
  • Third Thursday: Einstein’s Café, Lowry Towne Center

No appointment necessary. Just drop in to chat if you like.

 

New Recycling Center

Many of you have contacted my office with questions about the new recycling drop-off center that opened at Quebec and Cherry Creek Drive South. There is no limit to the amount material you can bring however this service is only available for residents of Denver, not commercial contractors. You may bring yard waste such as food waste, leaves and grass clippings to the site, but the material will need to be emptied out of any plastic bags and into one of the green compost carts at the center. Plastic bags are not accepted at all. You can use brown paper bags for yard waste as they are compostable.

There are limitations on the size of the branches that can be dropped off. Branches must be no longer than 4 ft. in length, no wider than 4 inches in diameter and weigh no more than 50 pounds. If you have lost an entire mature tree the recycling center cannot take it all and you should hire a tree service. If you have lost branches, Denver Recycling will gladly take them.

The recycling drop-off center does not take any electronics or recycle any batteries. Here is a list of all accepted recyclable materials. Additionally, here you can find information here on what materials can be composted.

Broken Branches? Here's what to do with them!
Dear neighbors,

There’s a new place to recycle your broken branches from last weekend’s storm, as well as bottles, paper and cans! Just in time to help residents deal with tree damage, Denver Public Works is marking the opening of its first recycling drop-off center, located at Quebec and Cherry Creek Drive South. The center opens Tuesday and accepts recyclables, yard waste and organics.

Hours of the new recycling drop-off center are:

  •          Tuesday - Friday from 11 am to 5:30 pm
  •          Saturdays from 9 am to 3 pm
The opening of the drop-off recycling center marks another milestone toward implementation of Denver’s Solid Waste Master Plan. It also provides more options for apartment dwellers who are ineligible to participate in the City’s recycling program, as well as Denver residents who would like to compost, but do not have composting offered in their neighborhood as of yet.
 
More tree branch disposal options:
Denver also provides limited branch pickup through its regular trash collection service:

Trash cart and manual service customers can tie loose branches in bundles no longer than 4 feet in length and weighing no more than 50 pounds. No branches may exceed 4 inches in diameter. A maximum of 10 branch bundles per household will be collected per the overflow collection cycle (every 3 weeks). Do not place branches in your city issued black trash cart and place at least 2 feet away from black cart when setting bundles out for collection.

Dumpster service customers can tie loose branches in bundles no longer than 4 feet in length and in bundles weighing no more than 50 pounds. No branches may exceed 4 inches in diameter. A maximum of 5 bundles of branches can be placed in dumpsters at a time. Customers with more branches should hold those branches for their next LIP collection. During LIP week, residents may place up to 10 branch bundles (meeting the above standard) in the alley, at least 4 feet from their dumpster. Note: branches picked up through regular trash collection service will not be recycled.

More on broken branches:
Property owners are responsible for cleanup of debris from trees on private property and from trees within the public right of way adjacent to their property. Property owners are responsible for the pruning needs of private property trees and the pruning needs of trees within the public right-of-way adjacent to their property. If you have general questions about the condition of a public-right-of way tree, you can contact Denver Forestry for an opinion at forestry@denvergov.org 

For trees on private property, citizens can visit  www.denvergov.org/forestry for a list of licensed and insured tree care contractors.  It’s a wise practice to make sure any tree care contractor is licensed and insured. If emergency removal of a fallen branch is needed to clear a street, the city can assist though an established on-call contract; however, the cost of the work will be billed to the responsible property owner.

Please feel free to contact me office with any questions.

Preservation endures in Denver
580 Gilpin
The interior of 580 Gilpin. 
Click image to view more.
Denver is the fastest-growing city in the West; today we're seeing booming population growth and near-record building permit volume. Although the current wave of growth won't last forever, our city will continue to grow and change in tune with demographic and economic changes, and in line with our adopted plans.

Fortunately, through all our city's changes over the last 48 years, our community-supported landmark preservation program has ensured Denver's greatest historic treasures remain. While our landmarked buildings and historic districts can and will be adaptively reused in modern ways, they will always retain their historic character.

Denver is full of great examples of historic preservation. In robust economies like today's, more projects spring up to breathe new life into long-forgotten buildings. Take Tres Birds Workshop's recent renovation of 580 Gilpin, a 1927 auto garage located in the Driving Park Historic District. The outside remains a utilitarian brick, while the interior has become a light, modern office and art studio. The building is energy-positive (it produces more energy than it uses). It, like many others, exemplifies modern, creative adaptive reuse and responsible preservation.

Over the last few years, Denver Community Planning and Development has taken steps to modernize and improve our landmark preservation program. Last year we worked with historic-property owners to create new design guidelines for all the city's historic districts, with a "how-to" approach to design, as well as guidance on modern energy-efficiency improvements. And today we're proud to be in partnership with Historic Denver, leading the Discover Denver citywide building survey to identify key buildings that help tell Denver's story.

In Denver, preservation is a community-driven effort. If you know of a building or district that merits landmark preservation, please visit our website and learn more about how you can preserve and protect Denver's historic treasures.
Project Spotlight: Epworth Church
Epworth Church
 
Epworth Church in the 1920s.

The Epworth Church building at 1130 31st St., designated a historic landmark in 1999, will soon house a restaurant and offices. The church, built in 1915 by the Denver Methodist Extension Society, was integral to the development of the Curtis Park neighborhood and served as Denver's first community center.

The key architectural features of this Renaissance-Revival building include masonry, 52 windows and an iconic metal "welcome" sign framing the entry.

Developer Larry Nelson of 620 Corp, Inc., estimates that the church has stood vacant for the last 35 years. Nelson, an active preservationist and former chair of the Lower Downtown Design Review Board, saw its potential.

"It's quite a spectacular space," Nelson said of the church's sanctuary, a high-volume space with a domed top and stained-glass skylight. "It makes a perfect gathering place -- again."
Discover Denver Launches Citywide Survey in Jefferson Park
Houses on River Drive in Jefferson Park
 
Houses on River Drive in Jefferson Park
Discover Denver, a project to identify historic and architecturally significant structures citywide, will begin its full citywide survey in the Jefferson Park neighborhood.

The citywide survey of 160,000 buildings comes on the heels of three recently completed pilot projects. Like the pilots, the citywide survey will gather information about buildings using public records, neighborhood canvassing, academic research, and tips from the public. Findings from this first-ever citywide survey of Denver will eventually be accessible online so that everyone from property owners to history buffs to real estate agents can learn about our city's past -- building by building.

Historic Denver, Inc. and the City and County of Denver are leading this collaborative project, funded mainly by a grant from History Colorado's State Historical Fund.

Project Spotlight: Z Block in LoDo

On Monday, May 11, developers broke ground on the Z Block project in the heart of the Lower Downtown Historic District. The project is a nearly full-block, mixed-use office, hotel and retail redevelopment between 18th and 19th and Wazee and Blake streets. 

 

Three historic buildings on Blake will remain. They include the Windsor Dairy at 1855 Blake St., a 1918 building designed by locally-prominent architects Fisher and Fisher; a two-story building at 1801 Blake Street, ca. 1915; and a 3-story building at 1821 Blake St. ca. 1900. 


Based on its location in the LoDo Historic District, the Z Block project required design approval by the Lower Downtown Design Review Board. 


The project is a partnership between McWhinney, Grand American and Sage Hospitality. Learn more at zblocklodo.com.

"New" Name for an Old Historic District

City Council recently approved the name change of the Welton Street Historic Cultural District to the Five Points Historic Cultural District to more accurately reflect the district and its significance. 


"The Five Points community advocated for this change, and we wholeheartedly support it," said Brad Buchanan, executive director of Denver Community Planning and Development.


Along with the name change, the district's period of significance was expanded to include the era prior to and including 1964 -- encompassing the full historic period of African-American business and cultural development along the Welton Street corridor.


In addition, two buildings on Welton Street (2559 and 2801 Welton) were designated as contributing to the district's historical significance, giving them additional protections.
This summer, historic districts signs with the new name will go up along Welton Street. 
 

About Us
Landmark Preservation is an important function of the Department of Community Planning and Development. Denver City Council enacted the Denver Landmark Ordinance in 1967 to foster the protection, enhancement, perpetuation and use of structures and districts of historical, architectural and/or geographic significance.

 

Landmark Preservation staff and two landmark boards carry out that mission through design review, historic surveys and landmark designations. Staff also assists owners of historic properties by providing guidance and resources for preserving, maintaining and rehabilitating historic buildings and properties. You can learn more about Denver's Landmark Preservation efforts on our website.

Introducing the Colfax Mayfair BID!

 

The new Business Improvement District's mission is to create a better place for people and business through economic development, public improvements, safety and advocacy. 

 

Last fall, voters approved the formation of the new Colfax Mayfair BID.Today, it is funded by commercial property owners along East Colfax Avenue from Eudora Street to Monaco Boulevard as well as in the Mayfair Town Center area (Colfax to 14th Avenue between Kearney and Leyden streets). Additional funding is provided by Denver's Office of Economic Development.

 

Our first priority is the Streetscape Design Project to improve safety, ease of access and the overall pedestrian experience. Denver-based Design Workshop will lead the project's planning process. With community input, they will consider elements such as sidewalks, lighting, benches, bus shelters, bicycle racks and gathering spaces. See next article for how you can participate. 

 

We have also started marketing efforts, including the creation of a new logo, which is a colorful, stylized version of a Krameria flower. (As you know, many of the district streets are named after flowers and trees.) Other efforts include this monthly e-newsletter for updates on new businesses, special events and other developments. A facebook page is up; like us now! Plus, a website will launch later this week as a resource for consumers and businesses alike.

Red Octave Moves into Old Cork House
 

Keep an eye on the former Cork House Restaurant on Colfax and Eudora Street. It will re-open in late June as Red Octave Kitchen and Bar, a contemporary Italian steak house with live music, full bar, and expansive outdoor dining.

 

Behind it all are Phil Long and David Sanchez (right), co-owners and longtime friends from the Red Lion Restaurant and Vail Resorts. Phil has been a popular musician there for 25 years.

 

"We've been looking for a location for a long time, and I hadn't been to this part of Colfax in years," said Long. "The typical perception of East Colfax is way off. We're eager to be part of the revolution that is going on here."

 

Renovations on the 5,000-sf building and large outdoor patio are well underway. In addition, the property includes a small multi-tenant retail building at Colfax and Elm Street. Long is actively recruiting new tenants. To date, a doughnut shop and a flower shop have signed leases and are beginning renovations.

Owner Kevin Mercado (right with staff) sees great potential in his new location. "We have had a lot of interest from the neighborhood already!" To get acquainted with the gym, he is offering an introductory special of $30 for 30 days.

The Farmers' Market is Almost Here!

Hangar 2 continues to grow as a gathering space for neighbors and friends with the return of the Farmers' Market on Tuesday evenings from 4P to dusk, starting June 4 and continuing through September. Come enjoy a bite to eat like a little ice cream from a crowd favorite, Em’s Ice Cream cart, featuring all handmade and organic ingredients; shop gifts and handmade items like jewelry; stock up on fresh veggies from Miller Farms or snatch up the sweetest fruit from Forte’ Farms.  There is no better way to spend a Tuesday evening than celebrating the bounty of Colorado from fine artisans to the freshest and most colorful foods all right in our own beautiful neighborhood.  The Lowry Farmers' Market is a great way to shop and eat locally!

The market is located in the Hangar 2 parking lot, near the front of the Lowry Beer Garden, at 7581 E. Academy Blvd, Denver.  The nearest intersection is Academy Blvd and Rampart Way.  We are just west of the Wings Over the Rockies Museum, and across the street from 24-Hour Fitness.

It’s not too late to apply to be a vendor.
