Adams County is gearing up for a massive new rail-served industrial and commercial park southeast of the Denver International Airport.
Port Colorado, a 6,500-acre master-planned community, hopes to lure companies to its highly desirable land, the majority of which is located north of Interstate 70 between Imboden and Manila Roads along the Union Pacific Railroad.
There may be no project like Port Colorado anywhere in the region, given its proximity to DIA, the Colorado Air and Space Port and Aurora, its rail access and the fact that such a large swath of property is under single ownership, said Wendy Mitchell, president and CEO of Aurora Economic Development Council.
Tyler Reed, Dominic DiOrio and Peter Beugg with Stream Realty are representing Port Colorado. Reed said he’s been working on the project since December 2020.
