Want to make any mixed-use development sound more enticing? Throw in a food hall.
This week, the owners of the office and retail park Colorado Center, at Colorado Boulevard and I-25, announced Junction Food & Drink, coming to a neighborhood that is currently not home to any food halls, a trend that continues to proliferate around the Front Range.
Junction will bring 10 restaurant stalls, a coffee shop and a bar this spring to a complex that already houses office towers, Dave & Buster’s and an IMAX movie theatre.
It’s located at 2000 S. Colorado Blvd. near the light rail’s Colorado station.
So far the developers have two food stalls confirmed: Shawarma Shack from chef Yaser Khalaf and Grind & Grill Burgers.
The hall is seeking more chef-tenants, who can apply at junctionfoodanddrink.com.
Another food hall is coming to the south side of town via Denver chef Troy Guard. The yet-to-be-named concept is slated to open next summer. And this month, the region will see two food hall openings. First, Rosetta Hall in Boulder will open on Friday, Oct. 11. Then, Edgewater Public Market should debut by the end of October.
