Aerotropolis Near DIA Could Break Ground this Spring
The massive airport-anchored community Aerotropolis, that will transform 21,000-acres south of DIA, could break ground as early as this spring, according to the Denver Post.
The project is expected to include 10 million square feet of retail, 30 million square feet of Class A office space and 40 million square feet of industrial and commercial space, on land that stretches from DIA to just south of I-70 and from E-470 to Monaghan Road.
Last month, Adams County and the Aerotropolis Area Coordinating Metropolitan District finalized a deal that forms a regional transportation authority, an entity critical to raising the money necessary to pay for the project’s roads and infrastructure.
Development of the 2,900-acre Aurora Highlands community that’s being built by developer Aurora Highlands LLC, already broke ground — a development that will covert 2,900–acres of vacant land east of Aurora into homes for 60,000 residents, parks, offices, and shopping centers.
