Building Community Partnerships: INDUSTRY RiNo Station

St Charles Park in Denver

​​​​City/State​: Denver, Colorado

​​​INDUSTRY RiNo Station is a premier creative office building comprising 178,000 square feet in the River North (‘RiNo’) submarket of Downtown Denver, Colorado. This off-market development opportunity, completed in partnership with INDUSTRY Denver, transformed an existing two-story industrial building into what is now a collaborative office space featuring private office areas and services as well as a wide range of shared tenant amenities such as a food outlet and ​dining areas, meeting rooms, and event spaces.​

It was imperative to the development partnership that the new 800-person office complement the existing values of the community and provide equitable access to outdoor spaces and community programs. To ensure this transpired, Clarion and INDUSTRY Denver provided financial and logistical support for the refurbishment​ of 1.2-acre St. Charles Place Park, a combination of shared outdoor space between INDUSTRY RiNo Station and the neighboring St. Charles Recreation Center, which ​​had not seen investment in new amenities in several decades.

To ensure the delivery of a successful solution that met the community’s needs, during the development and planning process a collaborative partnership was developed involving representatives from Denver Parks and Recreation, NDCC, Valerian, and Q-Factor, INDUSTRY’s management firm. A group of ambassadors from the St. Charles Place Recreation Center, including local teens, were also included to represent the goals and desires of the community. This collaborative partnership worked together to develop amenities, programing, and activities for the new shared space including mentoring programs, sports leagues, and youth leadership groups.

​​A new natural play area includes water, sand, slides, climbing features, and a basket swing. Boulders and logs provide play and seating options. Decorative lighted gateways, ​ plants, trails, new sidewalks, and an accessible ADA ramp to the recreation center were also included in the renovations.​

St. Charles Place Park symbolizes not only a new shared space, but a coming together of communities through smart redevelopment, transparent intent, and thoughtful design. ​​
