Local contractor selected for old Waterloo restaurant revitalization

LOUISVILLE — Boulder builder Milo Construction Corp. will serve as the general contractor for restoration and revitalization at the former Waterloo restaurant’s historic space on Louisville’s Main Street.

Andy Johnson of Louisville’s DAJ Design Inc. will be the architect.

The property at 809 Main St. is owned by Tebo Properties Inc. and was built in about 1900. 

It served as a series of eateries for the next century. Most recently, the Waterloo restaurant called the space home, but it relocated in 2017.

The plan is to attempt to maintain the original front of the 2,145-square-foot building while demolishing and rebuilding the back to create a 3,705-square-foot restaurant with a second-floor, outdoor dining deck, a Louisville city memo shows.

The back of the building will be removed, and a new basement and two-story addition will be built, Milo said in a news release. The new addition will have a rooftop deck and two stories of seating for another restaurant location.  

“Working on historic structures is a specialty for our firm, and we’re looking forward to restoring this important building in downtown Louisville to an even better version of itself,” Milo owner Pat Minniear said in a prepared statement. “We always look forward to working with owners, developers and architects who share in our vision of making historic buildings ‘new’ again, and by doing so, contributing to the economic engine of small cities and towns throughout Colorado.”

The restoration project is expected to cost more than $734,000, according to figures provided to Louisville officials last year.

Tebow sought and received a grant package last year from Louisville worth $492,083 to help defray those costs.
