Originally built in 1866 in an urban area of Denver, these buildings served as a brewery for over a
century. Economic hardship forced the brewery to close and the buildings stood vacant for nearly
two decades. In the 1990s, the Tivoli site was revitalized and developed as a student union and
retail center. Kolbe products were chosen for this massive renovation project due to our extensive
custom capabilities. The detail, trim and moulding for each window was made to exactly match
the profile of existing units, helping to replicate the original character of this historic landmark.
