What will happen to one of the most visible commercial properties in Denver remains a citywide guessing game, as that property changes hands for some $10.3 million.
The Robinson Dairy at 2401 E. Sixth Avenue in central Denver has long been an iconic landmark with its 1970s-era sign featuring six arrows pushing into the sky.
Zoned for light industrial use, the 6.6-acre site comprises nearly 100,000 square feet of building space that includes a food processing facility and warehouse.
The company announced it was closing its doors in the summer of 2013 after Dallas-based Dean Foods, which owned the Robinson Dairy, said it was merging it with another diary brand.
That signaled the end of a Colorado company that first started out as a dairy farm in 1885.
Although the commercial real estate company buying the property, Central Development of Denver, has not yet revealed its plans for the site, it has been suggested that the facilities could be redeveloped as a mixed-use site or even a brewery.
Business tenants at the property have leases that won’t expire until next year, at which time Central Development may announce new plans for the property.
