Tryba Architects is currently reimagining this historic industrial site as a mixed use community housing office tenants, artists’ studios, apartments, food and beverage production facilities, restaurants and retail. This project provides the opportunity to retain and reactivate over 50 warehouse and manufacturing buildings that reflect the authentic industrial heritage of the RiNo district.

The plan builds around a finely grained public realm of courtyards, lanes, and rail spurs to provide community amenities for the Cole and RiNo neighborhoods and a new destination precinct for the broader City.

With the opening of the RTD University of Colorado A Line linking Union Station and Denver International Airport the site enjoys a new level of local, regional and international connectivity within Denver’s much heralded Corridor of Opportunity. A short walk to the 38th and Blake Station, Denver Rock Drill is one stop away from Denver Union Station and the entire regional transportation network, and twenty minutes from Denver’s uniquely well connected International Airport.

The naming and identity for Denver Rock Drill has been developed to shepherd the history and spearhead the vision for the redevelopment.
