Denver, CO – Students in Carrie Makarewicz’s Urban Development class had an opportunity to tour the recently renovated former Rocky Mountain Seed Company building with the developer, Fred Glick. The building, located at 1520 Market Street in Lower Downtown (LoDo), was originally constructed as a grain and produce warehouse, but its current tenants include an IT company, an insurance company, and the flagship showroom for a commercial carpet company. Glick reviewed the process of infill development with the students. He touched on working with the LoDo historic design review board, public works, and utilities and also discussed the process of selecting and working with architects, engineers, general contractors, and, finally, securing and managing tenants.
