Forest City, Etkin Johnson Start Business Park at Former Denver Airport

Forest City Development and the Etkin Johnson Group have begun construction on Enterprise Park at Stapleton (pictured), a three-building, 441,000-square-foot office and industrial park at the site of Denver’s former Stapleton International Airport.  The first building will total 153,000 square feet and feature 30-foot-clear ceilings.  The other two buildings, with 24-foot-clear ceilings, will be 139,695 square feet and 148,900 square feet. All three will include 10-foot-high glass windows, suiting them for office, showroom, R&D and assembly uses, and a front park/rear load configuration will favor warehouse/distribution tenants.  The Etkin Johnson Group has operated in Denver since 1981 and currently owns more than 5 million square feet of commercial properties in the Denver metro area.   Forest City is a $10 billion NYSE-listed real estate company whose interests include retail centers, apartment communities, office buildings and hotels throughout the United States. The company recently opened an office in London.  Also at the former airport, in October 2006, Forest City opened Northfield Stapleton, a 1.2-million-square-foot open-air retail center anchored by Macy’s, SuperTarget, Circuit City, Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World and an 18-screen Harkins Theatres. The center also includes approximately 50 specialty shops, restaurants and retailers.
