encore for a classic
architect josh comfort [project architect for the lawrence group] & developer st. charles town co. have carefully planned the re-emergence of the lowenstein theater, fitting a complex new program into an historic shell. the new location for the tattered cover bookstore has been a challenge to convert an old theater into a place where books are displayed. for one, book shelves don't like sloping floors. the building will also lease space to udi's restaurant & denver folklore center.
neighboring the bookstore is a new parking facility, by local denver architects semple brown design. the structure will also lease a space for the independent music store twist & shout, as well as neighborhood flix cinema and cafe and a chipotle restaurant.
the parking garage will be accessible to coincide with the grand opening of the bookstore on june 25th.
bands, books, banjos, beatniks, & burritos...all in one place
what more could you want?
