The former Hanson’s Grill & Tavern building in Platt Park sold for $2.6 million.

Cadence WHQ LLC, an entity affiliated with Greenwood Village-based Cadence Capital Investments, purchased the 8,468-square-foot building at 1301 S. Pearl St. last week, according to public records.

A company official said Cadence hasn’t determined exactly what its plans are for the building.

Hanson’s Grill & Tavern was founded in 2001 and closed in late December.

“Hanson’s is a trademark landmark,” said broker Robert Edwards of Blue West Capital, who represented Cadence in the purchase. “Everyone’s had a beer or two there at some point in their life in Denver.”

The building dates to 1911. It was sold by Conifer resident Thomas Koehler, who had owned it for decades.

Cadence, which was founded in 2001 by Bill Rothacker, leases office space at 6400 S. Fiddlers Green Circle in the Greenwood Village. The company has about 15 employees, according to its website.

In recent years, Cadence has redeveloped a former church site along Federal Boulevard and flipped the former Red & Jerry’s off-track betting sports bar off Santa Fe Drive in Sheridan.

Cadence also developed Sprouts grocery stores near Mississippi Avenue and Broadway in Denver, and at Broadway and Belleview in Englewood.
