Savageau Building

The Savageau Building was completed in 1930 with Walgreens as its anchor tenant. Designed in a Mediterranean revival style, its Moorish designs, brightly colored glazed tiles, cusp arches and tiled roofs make the building a true and unrivaled Denver landmark. The 10,000 square foot building was divided into small-format retail, accommodating smaller, local businesses and startups.  An intimate courtyard tucked away behind the building became a feature element. The project serves an unmet need in Denver’s competitive retail environment, offering aspiring entrepreneurs a brick and mortar entry point. Now a diverse group of entrepreneur’s call this Colfax and York building home.
