Despite continual news on the breakdown of the retail sector in the commercial real estate space, Denver proves to be an outlier of strong growth. According to CBRE's research team, asking rates of almost $20 dollars per square foot hit a record high last year. In terms of big box stores, currently leading the reputation of 'death of the retail industry', Denver has about 25% percent fewer of them then was seen in the early 2000's, despite massive population growths (+80,000 people per year), creating a healthy competition in regard to the market of supply and demand. Unlike in many areas of the country with growing vacancies in the retail space, Denver spaces are warranting a much higher degree of interest and leasing rates. With more than 700,000

Whether or not purchasing a home in 2019 is on your list of aspirations, this article may shed a ray of light on your resolutions.Although you are not wrong for assuming the widely circulated piece of information stating you need a 20% down payment in order to purchase a home -- it's most certainly not true, and as a matter of fact, the majority of first time home buyers put down far less than that (and as little as 3%).

 A long-time topic of development discussion as the River Mile area (think old Elitch Gardens location) is some of the last land available in Denver and infamous for winning an award of ‘worst parking crater in America’– it is no surprise the development of this area has been a topic of hotly debated contention.That said, as of December 15th, the River Mile won approvals for 58 acres of spanning infrastructure including most notably, two to the city’s tallest buildings (59 stories) suited to fit 8,000 residents AND 1,200 affordable units. Worthy of bolded emphasis, these factors were some of the biggest barriers to getting plan approvals. In order to adhere to recently city council approvals, Invesco developers had agreed to make 15% of units

Speaking of Denver being the 2nd best ranked millennial boomtown (Denver Post) ranked only behind San Francisco, a round of applause for welcoming yet another SF tech company, Iterable – who has decided to make Denver their next point of expansion from their coastal locations. Although you may not be familiar with the exact company name, Iterable is responsible for client accounts quite well-known including Zillow and Spotify. Iterable has landed 10 employees in Denver so far while being ‘blown away’ at the level of talent Denver has, as many other tech companies (ei; Facebook) have also found. The founder of Iterable said ‘we have made 10 hires in a week, in San Francisco it might take a month or more’. Denver comes in with strong rakings for

The answers we have all been waiting for; what's to come with the housing market in the upcoming year is likely one of the most conversated about and speculative topics out there right now. Although there is no short or precise answer to this question, here are the major predictive takeaways right now (in a nutshell).
  Bubbles
Despite threats and talks of forlorn bubble burst and recession, in reality  what we will more likely see is a normalized version of a slowed economy reflected in appreciation rates around 3%. Although this number seems as dismal as the interest your earning on your Chase Savings account (in comparison to the double digit growth rates we have been experiencing), it is not a reason to put off buying.

The anticipatory Coming soon statement builds an element of excitement, mouth water, and mess as DIA announces and enacts their plans for their Great Hall renovations – a 1.8 billion-dollar reno plan which will (eventually) improve security and provide a new abundance of retail and dining options. Denver International airport is already ranked as the best regional airport in North America – but Denver does not set its bar low while hosting 62 million passengers a year and is on its merry way to conducting major improvements. The Great Hall Partners aims to appeal to a sentiment of ‘New American West’ (according to the Chief Executive officer Igancio Castejon) while inspiring and attracting the interests of people that uphold the repertoire of a smart,

And with that, ‘go big’ doesn’t even seem to do justice when talking about this mass convention center development which includes 1.9 million square feet of hotel, restaurant, retail, and indoor and outdoor recreation space. To expand (excuse my play on words) – we’re talking 1,500 rooms, eight restaurants and bars, four ball rooms, 81 conference centers, three event lawns, a 20,000 square foot patio, an indoor and outdoor pool, spa, ‘experience shower’, putting course, basketball court, tennis courts, a lazy river, coffee shops, marketplace, and oh, a casual lake and geyser in the hotel lobby. If the shock factor is not enough, the $800 million Gaylord Rockies Resort is the biggest hotel under construction in the United States and has employed
