The City of Loveland is located in Northern Colorado and is internationally known for its art, bronze foundries, and sculpture exhibitions.

Situated in downtown Loveland is The Foundry, a $75 million mixed-use development featuring restaurants, a hotel, a salon, a dine-in movie theatre, apartments, convenient parking, and a central plaza. The Foundry provides a safe, dynamic environment where community members can gather and enjoy the vibrant downtown area.

Creating a Vibrant Downtown Environment

The Foundry Development project began in 2016 and celebrated its grand opening in 2019. Three underutilized city blocks in the heart of Loveland’s historic downtown were transformed to include:  

  • 155 rooms for rental apartments
  • 14,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space
  • 102-room hotel
  • 625-seat MetroLux dine-in theatre housing five projection screens
  • 461 spaces of public and private parking
  • 43,000-square-foot community plaza with outdoor park and seating space

With outdoor walkways and seating between the buildings, the project turned Downtown Loveland into a true entertainment destination for visitors and residents.

DAAS, an international muralist, painted a powerful mural on the parking structure in the downtown area and titled the piece, My Favorite Things“. The inspiration behind the mural was to depict the uniqueness of the City through artwork.
