is located where Wazee Street crosses the Cherry Creek in historic
Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo) - easy walking distance from an
array of restaurants, pubs, museums, and cultural performances.
Expansive views of the city, mountains and Cherry Creek are
available from many of the loft residences and the common rooftop
originated in 1909 as the home of Brecht Chocolate and Candies,
which produced more than 3 million pounds of sweets annually.
The next owner that occupied the building until 1968 was the
Acme Upholstery Company, a manufacturer of fabric, mattress
ticking and foam cushioning.
In the early
1990's the building was acquired and in 1992 converted to residential
lofts. Features of the historic loft building include heavy
timber beams throughout, original brick walls, hardwood, and
fireplaces in some of the loft residences.
