Our Downtown Denver condo and Downtown Denver loft residents love to share their stories about food. From the new opening of a restaurant like Linger in LoHi to the delicious food trucks that cruise the streets of Capitol Hill, Denver offers some great options.
Downtown Denver Grocery Needs
But there has been one item of the wish list of Downtown Denver condo residents for some time… a true large scale grocery store.
It isn’t as if Downtown Denver residents don’t have options. With Tony’s Market and Cooke’s Market downtown there are some great convenient locations in central downtown. And for those who drive to and from work there are convenient locations along Speer, on Federal, and throughout the various neighborhoods.
But if you live in Northwest Denver or LoDo there has long been a need for a full service grocery store.
The Grocery Solution Arrives in Downtown Denver
Yesterday’s announcement in the Denver Business Journal Article “King Soopers to open downtown Denver store” offers some welcome news for our clients in Riverfront Park, Lower Downtown and Lower Highlands.
The Nichols Partnership, the same development group that brought us SPIRE on 14th and Champa, has structured a deal to bring a roughly 42,000 square foot King Soopers to their new project at 20th Street and Chestnut.
The new King Soopers Urban Grocery Store is planned to have apartments above and other retail on the ground floor in the rapidly expanding Union Station Neighborhood project.
A grocery store has long been planned by the developer at this location, but it remained to be seen if they could find a corner tenant to bring the Urban Grocery Store vision into reality.
Cheers and Kudos to the Nichols Partnership and all of our wonderful Downtown Denver condo and loft condo residents who have been asking for another grocery alternative in their neighborhood.
