Denver tops retail square feet decline

retail square feet

Denver, or perhaps Dallas, has more square feet of retail space per capita than any other city in the U.S. I first heard that when I was the real estate editor of the Rocky Mountain News in the early 1980s. I heard that Denver was either No. 1 or No. 2 multiple times in the…

Prologis deal for DCT second largest ever

Prologis

Prologis made a true blockbuster announcement this week when it said it would pay $8.4 billion for Denver-based DCT Industrial Trust. It appears to be the second-largest industrial real estate transaction ever.

Denver real estate a relative bargain

Denver

Denver real estate is a bargain...at least if you are coming from San Francisco. Pilot John R. Tennyson late last year moved from San Francisco to Denver.

Amazon

Amazon is amazing. I admit it. I’m an Amazon junkie. I use Amazon Prime almost daily, it seems, to order everything from organic dog food to solar-powered lights.

Amazon Prime. Amazon prime time in Denver, that is. You know what I’m talking about. Everyone in the Denver area is buzzing about the possibility that Amazon could plant its $5 billion flag - a second headquarters - in the Denver area.

Adams County on a roll

Adams County

Adams County is on a roll. An unnamed company is expected to announce later this year that it will bring a record 3,500 to jobs to Adams County. To put that in perspective, the most jobs ever announced in one year in Adams County took place just before the Great Recession hit. And that was…
