ViewHouse Will Have a Third Outpost, on Main Street in Littleton

ViewHouse has set its lofty sights on a popular location for rooftop patios— Main Street in downtown Littleton — where it would like to create a third outpost at 2670-2680 Main, its third outpost in three years. And like the original, which is a stone's throw from the Tavern Downtown, this would be across the street from the Tavern Littleton.

After plans fell through last year to house retail stores in two adjoining, historic properties, ViewHouse owner Francois Safieddine scooped up the parcel. The Littleton Historic Preservation Board had to sign off on the proposal; architect Raymond Ollett Jr. presented the plan for a two-story restaurant with rooftop patio to the board last October. The board gave its approval, and now the windows of the space boast a sign proclaiming "Your Newest ViewHouse," as well as the ViewHouse's win in the 2015 Best of Denver for Best Sports Bar for Watching Games.

What Ollett referred to as "adaptive reuse" will result in a layout that's different from the two current ViewHouses — the original in the Ballpark neighborhood, and a suburban offshoot just off I-25 at Arapahoe — maintaining the historic feel, and requiring some demolition in the rear of the building to give the downstairs an estimated 4,648 square feet of interior space, and another 2,039 square feet of space right above the barrel roof.  Since the building has historic standing, the project won't require additional parking.

Plans call for the ViewHouse to open in summer 2016, and judging from the crowds at the ViewHouse by the Tech Center, this one should be a huge hit, too.
