ViewHouse owner plans to build new restaurant in LoHi


Ten years after Francois Safieddine purchased land in front of Prost Brewing Co. & Biergarten in LoHi, the local restaurateur has submitted plans to build a restaurant there.

Safieddine, who owns My Neighbor Felix and ViewHouse, submitted a site development plan to the city last week for the property at 1875 Central St.

He purchased the undeveloped 0.3-acre lot for $950,000 in 2012, according to property records.

The founder of restaurant group Lotus Concepts wants to construct a 6,120-square-foot building, according to plans by Coyote Architecture. The main floor will be 4,395 square feet, and the second floor will be 1,725 square feet.

The lot is zoned for up to five stories.

The plans refer to the project as New View Restaurant, but that appears to be a placeholder name. Emily Ahrens, Lotus Concept’s director of marketing, told BusinessDen there is no timeline for this project and no details to share yet.

Safieddine has been staying busy lately.

Last month, he purchased Rio Grande’s former space at 1525 Blake St. in LoDo for $6.3 million, saying he plans to open a new upscale restaurant there, unique from ViewHouse and My Neighbor Felix.
