Fuel and Iron is a real estate development in downtown Pueblo, CO, in the Union Ave. Historic District. We are converting the historic Holmes Hardware Block building into a food hall and 28 apartment units. The food hall will serve as a restaurant incubator, helping the next generation of restaurateurs in Pueblo develop their concept and prepare to open their own brick and mortar. The apartments will bring needed density downtown, supporting the food hall and all businesses in Downtown Pueblo.
Five years from today, in addition to the apartment units being full and the food hall running successfully, we hope to have our first couple of restaurateurs ready to "graduate" from the food hall and open their own brick and mortars. We should also have completed Phase II of the project with a successful urban farm and additional multifamily with indieDwell. The food hall and apartments will also have catalyzed other housing and business growth along Union Ave., buoying downtown Pueblo.
