The former Epic Brewing property in RiNo is being marketed for lease, despite previous indications it would be converted into a restaurant.
David, Hicks & Lampert Brokerage is marketing the 0.57-acre property at 3001 Walnut St., which has about 18,000 square feet of building space on it, according to the firm’s website.
In a Monday email to those on its mailing list, the firm described the property as a “new listing.”
Epic Brewing began operating in RiNo in 2013, and announced plans this past November to close the Walnut Street brewery and taproom. That announcement came about four months after the property was sold by an entity affiliated by the brewery’s ownership.
Ken Himel and Phil Hicks, the two brokers now marketing the property, didn’t respond to requests for comment this week.
The listing would seem to suggest a previous vision for the site won’t come to fruition.
Last September, a concept plan was submitted to the city for the property, calling it to be converted to restaurant use. A second version of the document was submitted early last month, proposing demolition of about 4,500 square feet of the existing structures and the addition of open-air bar and deck space.
The plans show the restaurant named The Rustic. A company that operates four restaurant and music venues in Texas by that name didn’t respond to a request for comment Tuesday.
Epic Brewing, meanwhile, still operates in Salt Lake City, where it was founded.
