The Rose Andom Center is named in honor of successful Denver entrepreneur and former McDonald’s franchise owner, Rose Andom, and her lead gift of $1 million.
The City of Denver purchased the building at 1330 Fox Street and is providing a long-term lease for use of this facility. The Rose Andom Center, established as a 501(c)3, is responsible for raising all renovation funds and paying ongoing occupancy costs.
Near the thoroughfares of Speer Boulevard and Colfax Avenue in the heart of Denver’s legal community, the Rose Andom Center will be close to bus lines and a short walk to the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse, the Police Department and the District Attorney’s Offices. Access to most of these legal services will be available within the Rose Andom Center itself.
Built in 1970, the 46,000 square foot building with over 60 parking spaces has housed various organizations, most recently Denver Public Schools. The creative team at OZ Architecture planned the complete renovation to transform this functional, sturdy building into an attractive, environmentally-efficient, leading edge facility that will enhance Denver’s reputation for civic excellence. The Rose Andom Center will be a safe and welcoming place – a haven for those who are in need of help finding ready access to a variety of resources.The first floor will be a safe and welcoming reception area.The second floor will have a large training and conference area and lots of room for expansion.
