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 the elevation is exactly 5,280 feet (one mile), 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 highest elevation in the U.S.
- 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.
- Statistically speaking, the 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 United States.
- Located just 36 miles (58 km) from Boulder, Rocky Mountain National Park offers a stunning drive at 12,183 feet or 3,715 meters on Trail Ridge Road. This is the highest uninterrupted paved highway in the United States. But it’s closed during the winter due to snow depths of 20 feet (6.1 meters).
- While some competing Chambers of Commerce refuse to believe it, Denver/ Boulder claims on the average to have 300 sunny days per year.
