What happens when a company outgrows its trendy downtown office space in LoDo on Blake Street and faces a booming Denver real estate market? Unbridled Solutions LLC, an event management, production and creative agency headquartered in Denver and with offices in Boston, San Diego and Grand Rapids, bought the 16,000-squarefoot Grant Street Mansion in 2014 and relocated its growing family of businesses to the historic landmark in May 2016. The property has 36 rooms and 14 fireplaces and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.

To oversee the task of preserving the his - torical integrity of the mansion and prepar - ing it for the current needs of its new occu - pants, President Stan Bullis worked with Denver-based Humphries Poli Architects. Every effort was made to retain the 1892 structure’s original feel and function and follow the high standards of craftsmanship. Once slated for demolition, the Capitol Hill office incorporates forward-thinking design and provides a flow of connectivity and collaboration for today’s smart creatives, next-generation entrepreneurs and socially minded millennials.

“We didn’t set out to buy a mansion, we just needed more space,” confirms Kendall Ruth, director of content and storytelling. “It has been a labor of love.”

All four floors are being used to accom - modate 66 staffers, including those from Unbridled Media, Unbridled Travel and UnbridledACTS, a nonprofit that receives 20 percent of annual profits from the fam - ily of companies. The 4,000-square-foot carriage house is occupied by Intentionally Gifted, an Unbridled company, and two other companies not affiliated with Unbridled. 

Situated on 10 secluded acres along Waller Creek in Austin, the historic Commodore Perry Estate is set to open later this year. The resort-style hotel is in the heart of the city and offers an ultra-luxury experience brimming with style and charm. A new garden-inspired culinary concept, Lutie’s, will serve lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

 

When you're in the mountains, it’s truly difficult to be bored. From skiing and snowboarding to hiking and climbing, the U.S. Mountain West and western Canada know how to keep things interesting when it comes to outdoor activities. But sometimes, the best way to enjoy the mountains is to sit back and take in the expansive views. Take your meetings to the mountains without the heavy snow gear and winter boots by hosting your next event on a rooftop venue surrounded by breathtaking mountains.

 

Erase any vision you might have of a dude ranch, especially the “City Slicker” version. For the purposes of this story, let’s use the name ranch resort and picture a big dose of vision and thousands of acres for both herds and people to roam. It’s a fairly different option, but one with similar friendliness and the Western spirit of a dude ranch.
