The development, known as the Glendale Entertainment District, is located within the city’s downtown area, and is a master planned mixed-use retail, entertainment and commercial center. Glendale Entertainment District is anticipated to include an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, live concert venues, outdoor plazas, retail shops, fine dining and casual restaurants, sports bars, a hotel, two parking structures and a boardwalk along Cherry Creek. At full build-out, the Glendale Entertainment District is anticipated to consist of approximately 213,660 square feet of restaurant, retail, hospitality and commercial space.

Davidson. “It’s a pure example of how the right financing tools and team can ensure the successful delivery of a project of this scale that will support a thriving Denver and its community members long into the future.”

Bordered by E. Virginia Avenue to the north, Cherry Creek South Drive to the south, and S. Cherry Street to the east, Glendale Entertainment District sits along the pedestrian-friendly Cherry Creek trail and the banks of Cherry Creek.

The development will occur in two phases. The first phase will be anchored by the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Phase two contemplates a 120-room hotel, pool deck bar and retail and restaurant space.
