Recap: From Foundry to Market Hall – Adaptive Reuse at The Source

On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, we toured The Source Market Hall from 4:30 to 6:00 PM. Attendees learned about the magic and mindset that has lead to The Source, a unique example of adaptive reuse in the heart of Denver’s River North Art District. Justin Croft, VP of Development at Zeppelin Development and project manager of The Source Market Hall + Hotel, and Stephen Dynia, FAIA with Dynia Architects, lead a tour of the former 1880’s iron foundry that transformed into Denver’s original market hall.

About the site: Located at 3350 Brighton Boulevard in the heart of the RiNo neighborhood, The Source is modern food market that occupies a former 1880‘s brick foundry building. The collective of artisans and retailers offer visitors everything from freshly baked bread to craft cocktails, from street tacos to contemporary flower arrangements. The Source is home to the highly acclaimed Acorn, Comida, Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe, Babettes Artisan Bread, Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project and Caffe Figuarti, among others. Expanding on the existing Source, The Source Hotel will offer a 24-hour lifestyle experience focused around food, beverage and retail in the vibrant RiNo Arts District neighborhood. – Image courtesy of Tim Hursley + description courtesy of Zeppelin Development
