Centennial-based Kelmore Development, which has been developing along Arapahoe Road for 30 years, suggested the city of Pindustry to mimic similar concepts popping up across the country combining multiple categories of entertainment. The building in which it was developed was formerly Greenwood Automotive.

“We worked with the city early on to try to have our opinion on this,” said Kelmore owner Bob Koontz. “We’re only part of it, but we’re the first piece to be re-developed in the Arapahoe Entertainment District.”

Just a block from Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater, Pindustry hopes to serve as a venue before and after concerts, as well as putting on their own live music. It opens on weekdays at 4 p.m. and on weekends at 11 a.m. and only allows entry after 8 p.m. from 21 years of age

The venue has pinball machines and other arcade games.

Pindustry has an 8,500-square-foot outdoor beer garden and will use the garage doors installed with the former auto repair shop to open up its indoor dining areas to the outside. The location can be reserved for private or semi-private events on the roof terrace or in the outdoor beer garden.

“This is of course the first prototype of a new concept and we hope it does well for this area and the entertainment project,” said Koontz. “If it goes well and is as unique as we think it is, it may be something we do elsewhere.”

Kelmore Development’s previous entertainment developments include Celebrity Lanes and Regal Theaters. It also operates on the stock exchange in Lowry’s Boulevard One retail complex, which has attracted Target and Clark’s Market as tenants. The company is developing this project with Denver-based Confluent Development.
