Denver International Airport Releases 26-Acre Real Estate Opportunity

Denver International Airport (DEN) is seeking offers from qualified developers, investors, and users for both hospitality and retail development near its Final Approach facility through one or more long-term ground leases.

The area under development, called the West Approach, is a mixed-use development district, and part of Denver’s Global Gateway – an expansive development surrounding the airport, encompassing approximately 16,000 acres. Denver’s Global Gateway is the largest commercial land opportunity connected to any airport in the United States.

The West Approach comprises approximately 26 developable acres located at the intersection of Peña Boulevard and North Gun Club Road. The district is available for hospitality, retail and/or office opportunities. The district features unique outdoor spaces with views of the dynamic operations of the airport, the natural prairie landscape, and the Rocky Mountains. The north-south orientation of streets and public spaces highlights aviation vistas, including signature plane spotting opportunities. CBRE is representing DEN in marketing the opportunity.

DEN is seeking offers for the entire site for a master-planned development or for hospitality and/or retail development on any available land parcels. The site benefits from outstanding visibility, high daily traffic counts, and proximity to the largest employer in the Rocky Mountain region.

In alignment with DEN’s Vision 100, offerors must submit a proposed Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Plan that meets the requirements set forth in offer instructions. The proposed EDI Plans will be scored in the selection process. The MWBE goal established for this opportunity will be determined after a successful Offeror and development Offer are identified.

Offer submissions must be delivered to CBRE at no later than 5 p.m. MST
on March 31, 2022.
