New Sunnyside Redevelopment Project: Cobbler’s Corner

By Matt Levesque

Cobbler’s Corner is a new neighborhood-scale commercial adaptive reuse and infill project, located at 2436 W. 44th Avenue (44th and Alcott). The project is being developed by place-maker Paul Tamburello’s Generator Development, the group behind the restoration of several LoHi buildings. The project includes the restoration of a 5,200 square foot building as well as the addition of two buildings adding approximately 9,000 square feet replacing the parking lot. When finished, the project will include space for two restaurants, five retail bays, and two live-work studios. The original building most recently housed the Germinal Stage Theater; however, this redevelopment will bring it more in line with its original use as a neighborhood retail location in the late 1920s.

This rendering shows the original building in the center which is being restored into retail and restaurant space.  The building is then flanked by new infill to include a matching facade on the 44th corridor with additional live/work studios and a courtyard behind.
