The Denver Foundation purchases Casa Grande
The Foundation plans a 2020 move to Capitol Hill
The Denver Foundation is pleased to announce the purchase of the historic building “Casa Grande,” located in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The building is a contributing structure to the Sherman/Grant Historic District.
“The purchase of this historic building honors our deep roots in Metro Denver as we prepare for the future,” said Steve Seifert, chair of The Denver Foundation’s Board of Trustees. “As we approach our 100th anniversary in 2025, this wise, economical decision ensures The Denver Foundation will take care of the future for many years to come.”
In the coming months, The Denver Foundation will work with the Landmark Preservation Commission, Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods (CHUN), Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, and additional stakeholders to design and plan a renovation of the building.
“While we plan to update components of the interior of the building to meet our 21st century workspace needs, we will be proud partners in preserving the extraordinary structure and exterior of the building as aligned with the historic district,” said Alyssa Kopf, Vice President of Strategic Services.
The Foundation will move to the location in 2020. The building will serve as the Foundation’s headquarters, housing all workspace and a dedicated convening space for community meetings and trainings.
