JE Dunn Construction of Denver recently broke ground for Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s new Grizzly Grill, a 4,900-sq-ft dining facility.

Designed by CSNA Architects of Colorado Springs, the Grizzly Grill’s exterior features stone and wood surfaces to merge architecturally with the adjacent buildings and exhibits. The new facility will provide zoo visitors an expanded dining menu and extended indoor/outdoor seating within a modern facility. The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2010.
