Revitalizing properties through preservation and adaptive reuse
As 2021 draws to a close, CHUN continues to work with City Street Investors and Semple Brown Design on the renovated and restored Tears-McFarlane House and new annex cafe.
This year has seen significant milestones for the project including approval from the Landmark Preservation Commission on September 7th and the preparation of final design documents for the project. Semple Brown Design is currently working with the City of Denver to obtain the necessary site development plan and building permit approvals for the project. A building permit is expected in the first quarter of 2022 and work will begin once a permit is received and a contractor is selected. Expect to see big changes in 2022!
