Hard Hat Tour: Zeppelin Station – December 11

December 11, 2017

Join the Denver Architectural Foundation for our December Hard Hat Tours of Zeppelin Station! We are pleased to offer you two opportunities to tour the site on the evening of Monday, December 11, 2017. Please note, there are two 60-minute tours of Zeppelin Station. Register for the 5:15 PM tour HERE – the starting time is reflected in the ticket type. Please email us with any questions.

About the site: Designed by the award-winning Dynia Architects, Zeppelin Station is on track for LEED certification and features indoor-outdoor open spaces, characterized by high ceilings, natural light and native landscaping.

Situated atop a 20,000-square-foot market hall with diverse retail and culinary offerings, the project demonstrates a true sense of community amongst its tenants and the neighborhood.

Inspired by the success of The Source, Zeppelin Station’s ground floor is home to experiential food and beverage concepts such as Vietnamese banh mi, Italian gelato, and Hawaiian poke, all meant to encourage a deeper conversation and connection beyond the typical lunch counter. Above the market hall, three floors of scenic office suites offer roll-up, glass garage doors that pour out onto green terraces overlooking the Denver skyline and majestic Rocky Mountains. These design elements are signatures of Zeppelin Development’s most celebrated projects, including both the workspaces and residences at TAXI.

Zeppelin Station is located in the RiNo (River North) district of Denver, a historically industrial neighborhood with a gritty, urban feel that attracts a diverse community of artists and entrepreneurs. Recently emerging as a hotbed of innovation, the city has committed more than $47 million to infrastructure improvements in the next two years. – Site description courtesy of Zeppelin Development.

Please note: Zeppelin Station (3501 Wazee Street) is conveniently located across the pedestrian bridge from the 38th / Blake Street light rail station OR two blocks southeast from Brighton Boulevard on 36th Street. The Brighton Boulevard corridor is undergoing abundant construction and street parking is limited. The property should be entered from 36th and Wazee (right next to Bigsby’s Folly and across from Zwickplace) because the fence on the 35th side is usually closed. Please consider taking public transportation, Lyft, or Uber – thank you!
