Afrikmall Mixed Use

This mixed-use building is a renovation of the 56,000 sf JC Penney store on Colfax Avenue in downtown Aurora (just east of the Fox Theater). It was intended as a unique experiment in creating a center for African culture for Denver metro area diaspora Africans to share with each other and with other Americans interested in experiencing its unique flavor and energy.

The center was designed to include an interior mall with restaurants and shops, a cultural exhibit and education center, an event center, and office space.
