AEG Presents Rocky Mountains building a brand new music venue in RiNo

AEG Presents Rocky Mountains has a new mission: The Mission Ballroom.

On April 9, the region's biggest concert promoter announced a brand new, state-of-the-art concert venue that will open in 2019. The 60,000 square foot Mission Ballroom will be the centerpiece of North Wynkoop, a 14-acre mixed use project that will be developed between 40th and 43rd streets along Brighton Blvd. by the Denver-based Westfield Company.

In a video announcing the new venue and project (embedded above), AEG Presents Rocky Mountains CEO Chuck Morris said that the ballroom is the culmination of his nearly 50-year career in the Colorado music scene.

"Our entire AEG Presents Rocky Mountain team spent the last 11 years searching for the perfect location and the right design to build one of the finest venues this town has ever seen," Morris said in a press release. "With features including a moving stage that provides The Mission flexible capacity from 2200 to 3950 guests, unrivaled sight lines and state-of-the-art sound and lights, The Mission will bring Colorado the most cutting-edge concert experience in the world.”

The unique design of The Mission Ballroom will allow it to be customized for each concert as well as special events like "corporate meetings and other functions, award shows, galas, weddings, receptions, launch parties, trade shows, private events, and more." Located just blocks from the light rail stop at 38th and Blake, the North Wynkoop project will also include a new 90,000 square foot office and retail building and the renovation of several '50s-era buildings into restaurant and retail spaces. North Wynkoop will also eventually include a hotel as well as market rate and affordable housing.

“We are fortunate to have the opportunity of working with AEG Presents on this innovative concept,” Kevin McClintock, senior partner for Westfield, said in a statement. “The talents and experience of their team are unparalleled, and their dedication to the highest-quality musical experience aligns with our own long-term vision for North Wynkoop. The Mission Ballroom is the ideal anchor and will serve as the heartbeat for our project.”
