“For his new concept in Five Points, a Denver restaurateur with a trio of breakfast joints is branching out from the most important meal of the day.
Tim Doherty, owner of local breakfast chain Syrup, has leased space for a new restaurant concept at 2737 Welton St. He’ll take the first floor of a planned office and restaurant redevelopment, building co-owner Clay Carson said.
“The owner of Syrup has signed a lease for the bottom floor,” Carson said. “It’s not going to be a Syrup, but it’s going to be another concept he has.”
Carson heads up development firm Champa Street Holdings alongside partner John Pirkopf. The duo bought 2737 Welton St., a 109-year-old single-story building, in March for $400,000. The building previously housed a barber shop and salon.
Pirkopf and Carson plan to scrape the current structure and replace it with a new two-story building. By the time the land acquisition closed, Carson said they were close to finishing a deal with Doherty.
“We started shopping the lease before we closed; we had two parties that were interested,” Carson said. “So we didn’t quite have the leased signed before we closed, but it happened shortly thereafter.””
