The name alone is a tip off just how cool this neighborhood is. Since 1995, the development and repurpose of the Yellow Cab Depot building has been in the making by the formidable Zeppelin Development. Without the vision, RiNo might not have become the draw for such creative businesses as architects, gallery owners and designers. The TAXI project alone has created a sustainable, mix-use community, housing over 80 creative businesses and residences.
The fastest growing area in Denver, RiNo neighborhood is mostly an industrial zone. The Office of Economic Development have incentivized developers and businesses offering alluring tax credits. Most residential spaces have been established by the renovation and restoration of industrial buildings and most share common space with creative businesses and even artist studios.
The latest projects in RiNo include The Source, billed as a 25,000 square foot, open-air, artisan market place and The Industry Building with over 120,000 square feet of ‘creative workspace’ with two restaurants.
Without a doubt, RiNo is the coolest place in Denver to live.
