Stanley Marketplace, an adaptive reuse development on the border of Denver and Aurora has announced that GoodBird Kitchen has signed to lease space. This restaurant will feature Post Brewing Company beer.
GoodBirdKitchen will be a smaller, more streamlined version of The Post Brewing Company in Lafayette. It will offer their fried and rotisserie chicken, local farm fresh sides, and homemade pies.
Stanley Aviation utilized the site as its headquarters where aircraft ejector seats were manufactured beginning in 1954. The company was started by Bob Stanley who was the first person to ever fly a jet aircraft when he was working as a test pilot in 1942.
The vision for this adaptive reuse project is to convert the former Stanley Aviation property which has been sitting unused for years into a thriving urban marketplace. The Stanley Marketplace project located at 2501 Dallas Street in Aurora continues to make progress and is slated to open this fall.
The Stapleton-based firm Flightline Ventures consisting of Stapleton residents Mark Shaker, Lorin Ting and Megan Von Wald partnered with the City of Aurora to bring this project to fruition.
