Dairy Block, Denver
A new micro-neighborhood is coming to Denver’s Lower Downtown Historic District this spring with the opening of Dairy Block, a full city block on the former site of the Windsor Farm Dairy company. The reimagined block combines historic and new buildings–including a six-story office tower and a 172-room hotel, The Maven–connected by an outdoor alley lined with retail shops, restaurants and installations by emerging Denver artists. Sage Hospitality‘s fourth boutique hotel in the city, The Maven will feature creative direction from Brooklyn-based Creme/Jun Aizaki Architecture & Design and Denver-based Johnson Nathan Strohe. Loft-like guest rooms will be accented with raw rolled steel, beetle-kill wood and concrete, honoring LoDo’s ongoing transformation of industrial spaces into meaningful places for residents and visitors to enjoy.
