Some good news for those as depressed as I am over the coming “revitalization” of Alameda Square at 2200 West Alameda Avenue, home to some of my favorite spots in Denver. I have it from a good source that several of the great little businesses that operate along the long edge of the Square (namely Super Star Asian, the best dim sum joint in town, and Pho 99) may be temporarily relocated during the tear-down and construction, and then welcomed back once the dust settles. And King's Land, which is on the west side of the property, will be staying put.
Brighton Corp., the company behind the redevelopment that plans to put a Lowe's home improvement store at its heart, will allegedly help foot the bill for this round of dim sum hide-and-seek, but there’s no word yet on exactly where these businesses will be relocated to – or how many will take the developer up on the deal.
More details may be forthcoming at a community meeting to discuss the project, from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, September 10, at Rishel Middle School, 451 South Tejon Street. -- Jason Sheehan
