GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — The Lowell School on 7th St. and Grand Ave. was sold in 2015 and has been renovated into a business space. The 15,000 sq. ft. building hosts Raw Canvas Tattoo, La Fleur by Livvy, a natural perfume company, Blue Heron Gourmet Spices, Coffee, Tea, etc., Artlight Therapy painting studio and soon to be Gemini Beer Company.

Chris Dutton of Gemini explained that their current location on 640 White Ave will soon move down the street to the R5 building in the beginning of February of 2023. The last of the renovations include building the bar top, installing a cooler and keeping some of the school’s history by making tables from the old school desks.

The integrity of the school will be kept, while these businesses blossom.
