Since You’ve Been Gone… How to explore the new Colorado Springs.opens in a new tab
Maybe you’ve known the Springs as just a mid-size city in the shadow of Pikes Peak, but take one stroll through downtown and you’ll realize the city has evolved in countless ways over the past half decade. It’s not only seen a boom in population, it’s become a breeding ground for innovation and the wellspring of a cultural renaissance.
“We’re shaking up the Springs,” says Aaron Ewton, owner of Atlas Restaurant Group and the mind behind the newly opened CO.A.T.I culinary incubator. “And I love seeing that occur.”
While the Springs’ downtown was once marked by untapped potential, Ewton says all that began to change a few years ago when a new generation of business owners reimagined the city and began to reclaim its reputation. The result has been a diverse mix of restaurants, hospitality concepts, and other small businesses. In addition to CO.A.T.I, the downtown district’s awakening is headlined by the boutique-style Kinship Landing hotel, a new professional soccer stadium for the Switchbacks FC, and the much-anticipated United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum—all of which opened within the last year despite COVID-19. In fact, the number of small businesses in Downtown Colorado Springs grew over the course of the pandemic, with more than 20 street-level businesses opening in 2020 alone and more than two dozen already announced for 2021.
