CDOT Selects Location for Future Corporate Headquarters and Region 1

19-Aug-2016 to 19-Aug-2016

CDOT recently announced the future intended location for the new CDOT Headquarters and Region 1 offices in Denver. A site was selected south of Colfax Ave. near the Mile High Stadium. CDOT plans to construct new office buildings on the property. The location is across from an existing RTD transit station and close to the South Platte bike trail.

A purchase and sale agreement is currently in the works with the Metro Stadium District and the Denver Broncos. The Transportation Commission plans to review the final Guaranteed Maximum Price for the new buildings on August 18, 2106 and make a determination about moving forward with the plan. If approved, CDOT anticipates moving into the new Headquarters/Region 1 building in early 2018. 

The search for a new location started several years ago using criteria outlined in a summary report that included; being within a 5 mile radius of the State Capitol, located within walking distance to light rail, new/improved facility for 21st century, enhanced service delivery to the public, increased efficiency/higher quality work experience for CDOT employees, high visibility to the public, easy access to major highways, and adequate surface parking. The selected location is a good match and will also serve as a catalyst for redevelopment of the Sun Valley neighborhood which is being targeted by outside planners for a green transformation into a model, sustainable "eco district."
