Real Estate Development




Real estate development is about creating the places that make a city tick. From transit-oriented development at light-rail stations to apartment complexes on the Platte River to repurposed historic buildings all over town, these are the places that put a face on Denver. But first you need real-estate developers who are willing to take a chance. Where most see vacant land or abandoned buildings, smart developers see opportunities. In Denver, the opportunities for infill development have turned into home runs now known as LoDo, Stapleton, Lowry and RiNo. In 1990, these neighborhoods were unrecognizable to Denverites accustomed to their good 21st-century looks.
