TAXI is the latest entry in Zeppelin Development’s portfolio of hip, urban, carefully curated places. Located in the heart of Denver’s edgiest downtown neighborhood – River North (RiNo), TAXI is an environmentally sustainable, architecturally innovative and diverse community of light industrial, office, and live+work loft spaces.
