Pub, salon to open in apartment building

LONGMONT – The Roosevelt Park Apartments mixed-use development in Longmont has its first two retail tenants, with Boulder-based brewery Mountain Sun planning to open a new restaurant there and Inspire Salon & Spa opening as well. Mountain Sun will occupy 4,500 to 5,000 square feet at the corner of Longs Peak Avenue and Main Street, said developer Keith Burden of Burden Inc. Mountain Sun proprietor Kevin Daly said he’s leaning toward naming his new space the Longs Peak Pub and Taphouse, although it’s not official yet. He is aiming for a March or April opening day. The new pub will not brew beer onsite. Mountain Sun has three locations in Boulder – Mountain Sun, Southern Sun and Under the Sun – in addition to its flagship brewery at 1700 Vine St. in Denver. The Denver brewery has the capacity to brew beer for two or three locations, Daly said. Daly said Mountain Sun wasn’t looking to open a new location, having just opened Under the Sun in January. But the Burdens approached him about the location and he said it seemed like the right opportunity. “It was such a cool space and we love downtown and it’s a really cool building,” said Daly, who estimates that Mountain Sun will brew about 4,000 barrels of beer this year. “Longmont is underserved with locally owned restaurants.” Inspire Salon & Spa will occupy nearly 2,000 square feet along Main Street, with a December opening targeted. Burden said two artists’ studios also will open along Main Street and be leased by the Longmont Downtown Development Authority as incubator space. The only other retail space to lease is a 2,700-square-foot spot at the corner of Longs Peak Avenue and Coffman Street, where Burden said he’s trying to land a breakfast/lunch café or bistro. “We’re really just trying to find the right group to go in there to complement the project,” Burden said. In addition to the ground-level retail space, the $20 million development is slated for a parking garage and a 115-unit apartment complex, complete with a central courtyard. Burden said the first apartments would be open for move-in by December, with the remainder opening in January.
