National Jewish Health will be expanding its medical campus at 1400 Jackson St. The medical facility has lined up a new $76.6 million building, with construction estimated to start as early as this year. The new building will be a Center for Outpatient Health.



Bishops Cuts and Colors

The salon-and-barbershop franchise opened a new location in City Park on June 22. The franchise is owned by Alison Laevey and her husband, who have been Congress Park residents for the last 20 years.

This is the second Bishops location for the couple, who also own one in the Lowry neighborhood. The City Park location is at 3825 E. Colfax Ave.

“Bishops Cuts and Colors is a unisex hairshop that offer cuts, colors, shaves and fades to men, women, you, with gender nonbinary, a la carte pricing,” Laevey said in an email. “We welcome everyone with no judgment. We’re creating a space where everyone can be themselves with the look they feel is their best, in a shop filled with art and music.”

The salon offers walk-ins and scheduled appointments. For more information, go to
