It’s early, but plans for a development in the River North section of Five Points will move forward after the Denver City Council approved new building guidelines for 3333 Brighton Blvd., the dirt lot next to Great Divide Barrel Bar.
McWhinney, the builder in the process of buying the property from the craft brewery, can construct a 12-story building — if it includes below-market-rate homes. Otherwise, they’re entitled to eight stories.
Some type of retail will occupy the ground floor.
The rezoning squeaked by in an 8-to-5 vote because of concerns about parking and a city loan that Great Divide is still paying back.
