What's Next For RiNo
What happens when an up-and-coming neighborhood like RiNo becomes established? Does it lose whatever it had that attracted people in the first place?
“The downside to gentrification is that it pushes out people and culture indigenous to the neighborhood," HomeAdvisor Senior Vice President, Consumer Product Paul Zeckser said. "My hope and expectation with RiNo is the opposite.
"As companies like HomeAdvisor move into RiNo, the existing ‘maker’ culture will infuse us and our employees with added creativity. As we design our new headquarters, that's very much at the forefront of our thinking — how best can we pull in the spirit of RiNo? That's what we are hoping to capture with our move to the area.”
“When you consider RiNo as the hottest arts and cultural community in Denver, nothing is ordinary," World Trade Center Denver President Karen Gerwitz said. "This is why the World Trade Center Denver chose RiNo to house our site.
"Adjacent to the A-Line Commuter Rail stop at 38th and Blake, we will be within walking distance of a number of amenities. We want to bring what RiNo is best known for into the mosaic of our own ecosystem.”
"We will be part of the transformation that is occurring in RiNo with the development of The Hub," Beacon Capital Partners Managing Partner Cathy Mossman said. "We believe that RiNo’s improved infrastructure and planned development will benefit all of Denver.
"Beacon purchased the property earlier this year because we believe in RiNo. We're committed to creating a distinctive property that's ideal for creative companies."
