The Growing Restaurant Group That's Paying Homage to the Past While Planning for the Future
Mar 1, 2020
Olson had spent time working in Japanese restaurants, including the now-closed Japon on South Gaylord Street, before opening Recess with a group of friends in late 2015. The beer garden, at 2715 17th Street in LoHi, has since become a go-to for good times, thanks in part to its ample outdoor space. “People move to Colorado to be outdoors and to experience all four of the seasons, so I want that to be the majority of the space,” Olson says of the Recess design, which he and his team did themselves — a rarity for most restaurants, which typically outsource design and remodeling projects.

RiNo loses another auto repair shop as owners sell property for $2.2M
Nov 22, 2021
Another automotive repair business along Brighton Boulevard in RiNo has taken the exit.
The owners of Perfection Motors, who have worked on Mercedes-Benz vehicles at 3726 Brighton Blvd. since 2007, have sold their real estate and are closing the business.
George Grubaugh, 63, said he and Perfection co-owner Gary Uhlenbrock are retiring.
The 0.22-acre lot was purchased for $2.15 million, or $230 a square foot, by Perfection Two LLC. That entity is a partnership between Jack Ricci — an architect who is moving into development — and his mother Elizabeth Ricci.
“Our plan right now is to do a nice infill building on that site,” Jack Ricci said.
No development plans have been submitted for the site. Ricci said he’s looking to build apartments with ground-floor retail — “there’s a dearth of ground-floor retail along Brighton” — but that the specifics depend on negotiations with the city over how he can take advantage of the 38th and Blake zoning overlay.
The property is zoned for five stories, but the overlay allows for up to 16 stories to be built if certain requirements are met regarding income-restricted housing.

Longtime Denver developer Charlie Woolley not slowing down
Oct. 10, 2021
Longtime Denver developer Charlie Woolley may be getting a lifetime achievement award, but he’s not slowing down.
The founder of St. Charles Town Company has become known for his crafty adaptive re-use projects with landmark buildings and an eye toward affordable housing.
In fact, Woolley is about to embark on his most challenging development yet, and after 28 years the first outside of the city of Denver.
“It’s amazing to be recognized for anything you do, but this is a big deal,” said Woolley of Historic Denver’s decision to grant him the Keystone Award for lifetime achievement.
Historic Denver’s CEO Annie Levinsky said Woolley’s Lowenstein Theater complex, 2526 E. Colfax Ave. and Savageau Building on east Colfax Avenue have been transformative for the area.
