A major real estate developer and investment firm based in Dallas has announced plans to build up to 1 million square feet of new mixed-use space some 17 miles northeast of downtown Denver.
The site at Tower Road and E. 61st Avenue was formerly open farm land.
But three years ago plans were announced by developer L.C. Fulenwider and the real estate division of the Denver International Airport for the creation of Pena Station Next, a 400-acre master-planned smart city with an emphasis on clean energy and walkable space.
Now developer KDC of Dallas says it wants to put up a modern build-to-suit office designed by the Denver-based HKS Architects at Pena Station Next.
In a statement, Chris Selbo, vice-president of development for KDC, remarked: “This project and location are perfectly situated to deliver what corporations are looking for—transit-oriented, mixed-use, and walkable.”
The project will be going up at a site, advertised as the last stop on the Regional Transportation District’s A Line to the airport, that has also seen the construction of more than 200 multi-family housing units, and a Hyatt Place Hotel, in excess of 225 rooms.
Developer KDC specializes in the building of mixed-use campuses and has done similar projects for such firms as JP Morgan Chase and the State Farm insurance company.
