Plans are underway for the development of a 55-acre industrial park in Commerce City, just 9 miles northeast of Denver.
The open and airy park will feature plenty of space for industrial development, but will most importantly offer access to a Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail line running north to south through Colorado.
The Mid Rail Industrial Park is being developed by CBRE Industrial and Logistics of Denver and is already home to a 234,000 square foot warehouse and plant owned by the steel distributor Instel Steel, a subsidiary of the Houston-based Triple-S Steel Holdings.
Defined as an in-fill project, the industrial park, said Todd Witty in a statement, will be a “great fit for suppliers associated with the construction industry that depend on the low-cost delivery of materials and are facing unprecedented demand in the wake of Denver’s population growth.”
Witty is the vice-president of CBRE Industrial and Logistics.
The development of the park comes on the heels of a $141 million upgrading of BNSF’s infrastructure in Colorado, which included its Commerce City connection.
