Riverfront Park’s favorite coffee shop is expanding into the space next door. Everyone was sad when the NYC Deli closed it’s doors this spring, but Ink! is taking the opportunity to grow their business. They will be adding ice cream, shakes and malts. This is not just any ice cream either; they will be serving Little Man and Sweet Action Ice Cream. Two of Denver’s best! The official opening is 11:00 on Monday morning, but if you happen to be in the neighborhood on Sunday, they will be giving away free scoops of ice cream! Additionally, Ink! will be expanding their hours until 9:00 PM.

This Thursday, the Riverfront Park Social Club will be putting on a movie night for the neighborhood residents. On the grass park behind the Riverfront Tower building we will set up an inflatable screen to show The Hunger Games. This is open to everyone and you can bring your own cooler for refreshments. Popcorn will be provided and the movie will start at sunset. Residents are encouraged to stop by McLaughlin’s or Zengo prior to the movie for happy hour or quick bite. You can set up your chairs and blanket starting at 5:00 PM. I hope you can make it. The Riverfront Park Social Club is funded by the Riverfront Park Community Foundation.

The parcel of land located on 20th and Little Raven owned by AMLI, a Chicago-based developer, has broken ground. The 2.67 acre property was sold in December for $9 million. The project planned for Riverfront Park will be a 242-unit apartment complex that is five stories tall and has 344 parking spaces. The ground breaking comes just weeks after the completion of the Manhattan Phase 2. This project is another step to Riverfront Park’s master plan being complete. There are only three parcels of undeveloped land left in the neighborhood! With the trend of young professionals moving to the city, experts are confident that these units will be absorbed quickly and the market will not be overbuilt.
