A Houston-based developer this month broke ground on a mixed-use development in Denver's River North (RiNo) district in what used to be the home of Denver Hardware.

The 233-unit "Campden RiNo" will include 193,000 square feet of net rentable space, as well as 3,500 square feet of retail/restaurant space, according to the developer, Campden Property Trust. Its project costs are $22.15 million, according to Buildzoom.com's analysis of public records.

The seller is Daniel Kaatz, who took ownership of Denver Hardware after his father and founder Bud Kaatz, passed away in 2005. Denver Hardware was founded in 1946 and moved to its Rino location — a full city block bounded by Walnut, 32nd, Larimer and 33rd streets — in 1953.

Denver Hardware is now at 485 Osage St.
