John Atencio to Open Concept Boutique at PearlWest, Boulder
August, 29 2016
BOULDER, Colo., August 10, 2016 – John Atencio, Colorado’s premier jewelry designer, artist and entrepreneur, will introduce a first-of-its-kind concept boutique at PearlWest in Boulder in the summer of 2016. The John Atencio Gallery will occupy 1,350 square feet of prime retail space, his 7th jewelry boutique in Colorado.
“When I first got started as a jewelry artist in 1973, I sold my designs on the Hill at Pat Peterson’s in Boulder,” said Atencio. “It is my great privilege to bring my original wearable jewelry art back to a city so close to my heart.”
This prototype for future JA jewelry gallery boutiques, will reflect Boulder’s lifestyle and sense of community, and was designed by architect Semple Brown Design in Denver. In addition to the distinctive footprint, the new jewelry gallery will also feature John Atencio’s Signature Collection and a new line of watches that will debut in the same time line. The gallery will be managed by Shelly Getty, a Boulderite for more than 25 years and a 7-year associate with the John Atencio brand.
"The unique elements of the new John Atencio Gallery are a perfect fit for our collection of tenants at PearlWest,” stated Lynda Gibbons of Gibbons-White Inc., one of the developers of the site along with The Nichols Partnership. “He joins an exceptional group of office tenants including Crestone Capital Advisors LLC, SolidFire and Galvanize at our LEED Platinum building and a strong line-up of retailers including Alpine Modern, Eureka! Restaurant Group, and others to be announced soon,” said Gibbons.
PearlWest is a 4-story commercial office and retail building featuring a rooftop restaurant and public plazas both on the rooftop and at the pedestrian connector on Pearl Street. There is space dedicated for an art film theatre, over 127,000 square feet of commercial office space, 30,000 square feet of retail space, breathtaking views of the Boulder Flatirons, and a high tech automated robotic parking system that is the first in the state and the entire western region. Construction began in May 2014 and is scheduled for completion in spring 2016.
