DENVER, COLO. – May 16, 2014 – McWHINNEY, Larimer Associates and their partners (REGen, LLC, Sage Hospitality and Urban Neighborhoods) are pleased to announce that one additional tenant has been added to the mix of Colorado retailers and restaurants opening in the new Denver Union Station this July: 5 green boxes.

Charlotte Elich opened the first 5 green boxes in Denver’s popular South Pearl Street shopping and dining district in 1999. The store has since expanded to now offer two locations in the neighborhood– the “Little Store,” a woman’s boutique offering fabulous contemporary clothing, purses, jewelry, scarves & more, and the “Big Store,” which features home décor, reclaimed furniture and unique gifts.

At the Denver Union Station, 5 green boxes plans to offer an eclectic mix of local crafts, jewelry, one of a kind furniture and worldly goods, with a focus on artsy gifts and hip items for travelers.

“This project is really exciting because of the sheer number of people who will be passing through Denver Union Station every day – from downtown residents and workers to visitors to Colorado,” said Elich. “We are thrilled to be a part of this amazing new community.”

Opening on July 12, Denver’s new Union Station will feature an incredible line-up of locally owned restaurants and retailers, including Mercantile Dining & Provision, a European-style restaurant and market by Chef Alex Seidel, Stoic & Genuine by Chef Jennifer Jasinski, Snooze, an A.M. Eatery, The Kitchen Next Door Community Bistro, the Tattered Cover Book Store and Bloom, a boutique by Anuschka Pashel.

Larimer Associates, McWHINNEY and its partners carefully selected each of these tenants to design a locally-driven, distinctive compilation at Union Station.

Denver Union Station is now 100 percent leased.

“5 green boxes is the perfect final retailer to round-out the eclectic mix of Colorado businesses that we envisioned for the new Denver Union Station,” said Pat McHenry, Leasing and Acquisition Partner at Larimer Associates. “Visitors to the historic Great Hall are going to be amazed at this exceptional Cole.Evansction of experiences.”

Denver Union Station will also be home to The Crawford Hotel, a 112-room independent luxury hotel managed by Sage Hospitality.
