One of the founders and principals of City Street Investors, Joe Vostrejs has been involved in real estate and restaurant development in Denver since 1985.
Joe and his partners have been investing in Denver neighborhoods for almost two decades, with a philosophy of choosing transformative projects that create both financial and social value – a practice he and his partners have dubbed “Custom Crafting”.
In City Street Investors, the partners have created a highly capable, real estate-based, investment, management and development group that primarily works on complex projects that require creative solutions and that conform to the group’s mission of creating places that genuinely improve the communities in which they exist. Through a series of creative partnerships, projects and innovative acquisitions, the group has built a portfolio that consists of more than twenty restaurant investments and partnerships as well as a collection of over twenty re-positioned retail and multi-family properties in Denver’s most desirable neighborhoods.
Joe is also a partner in Union Station Alliance, a dynamic multi-organizational group tasked with the redevelopment of Denver’s historic Union Station, which opened in July, 2014. Joe and his partners created the locally-oriented retail vision and strategy for the project as well as created and operate five new food & beverage concepts for the project: the Cooper Lounge, The Terminal Bar, Milk Box Ice Creamery, Pigtrain Coffee Company and Acme Burger and Brat Corporation.
Prior to City Street Investors Joe was the Chief Operating Officer of Larimer Associates, during which time he was responsible for the operation of Larimer Square as well as the company’s other significant real estate & restaurant holdings. Joe remains a partner in many of its investments.
Joe is designated as a Certified Retail Property Executive (CRX) by the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), and as a Real Property Administrator by the Building Owners Management Association (BOMA).
He is the past Chairman of the Downtown Denver Partnership where he continues to serve on numerous councils. He also sits on the board of HLC @ Metro, Inc. and The Denver Architectural Foundation.
