Rocky Mountain Rail Park Breaks Ground

On October 8, Rocky Mountain Industrials, Inc. celebrated its ceremonial groundbreaking at the Rocky Mountain Rail Park, a 620-acre rail-served industrial park in unincorporated Adams County. CEO Gregory Dangler hosted the event, where Betsy Markey, executive director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and Nathan Anderson, senior director of Public Affairs at Union Pacific Railroad, spoke and highlighted their excitement and support of the project including its promising impact on economic growth.

The Rail Park is located just off Manila Rd and I-70, and adjacent to the Colorado Air and Space Port (formerly Front Range Airport). Construction will start in Q4 2020 with the ability for buyers to start building in Spring of 2021.

“Premier real estate projects like our Rocky Mountain Rail Park help welcome corporations from around the world. The industrial supply chain is often overlooked by urban planners which is why the rail park answers 30 plus years of un-met demand,” said Rocky Mountain Industrials CEO Gregory Dangler. “To feed the massive growth Colorado has seen the last few decades requires institutional scale supply chains to protect Coloradans from unnecessary inflation of base materials”

Adams County Commissioner Emma Pinter was not able to attend the event but provided the following statement,  “This new Rail Park will be a catalyst for many economic development opportunities in the county, at and around, our Colorado Air and Space Port. The park, and its prime location, will provide much needed access for current and future businesses across the metro area to ship products cross-country in a faster and more economical way and will provide space for new business opportunities. In addition, this new rail park will foster job growth in our county which has a direct impact on sustaining a better quality of life for our residents.”

Aaron Valdez, Alec Rhodes and Tyler Smith of Cushman & Wakefield are providing brokerage services for the new park.
