Following are some interesting facts about Metro Denver/Boulder and its commercial real estate market…
The City of Denver is called the “Mile High City” because its elevation is exactly one mile (5,280 feet or 1,609 meters) above sea level on the steps of the Colorado State Capitol Building in downtown Denver, making it the major city with the nation’s highest elevation.
Denver International Airport’s (pictured above) award-winning architecture and magnificent views of the Rocky Mountains create a unique atmosphere for the travelers. The internationally recognized peaked roof, designed by Fentress Bradburn Architects, is reflective of snow-capped mountains and evokes the early history of Colorado when Native American teepees were located across the Great Plains. The catenary steel cable system, similar to the Brooklyn Bridge design, supports the fabric roof.
The City of Boulder is home to the University of Colorado’s main campus, with more than 30,000 students. Nestled against the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains’ Front Range, Boulder is consistently rated as one of America’s very best small cities in which to live. Its high tech industry is thriving.
Citizens of Denver/Boulder are the most physically fit Americans in a major metropolitan area and Colorado is the most physically fit state in the US.
Located just 36 miles (58 km) from Boulder, Rocky Mountain National Park offers a stunning drive on Trail Ridge Road at 12,183 feet or 3,715 meters. This is the highest uninterrupted paved highway in the US. But it’s closed during the fall and winter due to snow depths of 20 feet (6.1 meters).
