This morning it was announced that Honor Society Handcrafted Eatery will be opening its first restaurant at 1900 16th Street in Denver’s Union Station Neighborhood. The space leased is 3,300 square feet and Honor Society is set to open this summer.
The interior of the restaurant was designed by Colorado-based Rowland Broughton architecture firm. Rowland Broughton has offices in Denver and Aspen.
Four partners have created this restaurant: Jonas Tempel, Rob Alvarado, Ian Smith and Justin Brunson.
“Honor Society is based on the idea that great food has the power to unite people and provide a path to a healthier lifestyle,” said Temple. “It’s our humble belief that a productive life starts with your food and your food choices.”
The concept of the restaurant is to serve healthy, high-quality food in a fast casual setting. Honor society will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“What excites me most about this project is the brand’s higher purpose of improving lives,” Alvarado said. “For our guests, we have the opportunity to positively affect eating habits by offering high-quality, healthful and craveable food and beverages at a great value. However, our reach will extend well beyond the four walls of the restaurant as we are committed to investing in improving the lives of our co-workers and communities.”
1900 16th Street is a 17-story 400,000 square foot office building that stands near Denver’s Millennium Bridge. The building was completed at the height of the recession in 2009. Today, 16,000 square feet of leasable office space is available. It currently stands as the tallest office building in the Central Platte Valley. CBRE has managed the leasing of this building. When 1900 16th Street opened it added 8,700 square feet of leasable ground floor retail space to Denver’s Union Station neighborhood.
