DENVER—Phoenix-based A&C Properties has announced the completion of the first phase of Porteos, a 1,287-acre mixed-use development adjacent to the Denver International Airport (DIA). Phase I of the massive project included the opening of the new Jackson Gap Street, which will provide immediate access to the airport and serve as throughway for residents of Aurora and Adams County. A&C Properties invested $13 million into the development of the new street and the supporting infrastructure, without resorting to public funding.
“The commitment to regionalism by elected officials in Denver, Adams County and Aurora has resulted in this roadway and a new southern entrance to DIA,” Bill Wichterman, vice president & general counsel of A&C, said in a statement. “With the construction of this new south entrance to DIA, we have connected Adams County and Aurora to the massive economic engine that is the Denver International Airport, the fifth busiest airport in the country.”
Located at the northeast corner of Jackson Gap Street and 64th Avenue, the project is just two miles away from DIA’s main terminal and the new, 519-key Westin Hotel and light rail station. Additionally, Porteos offers direct access to the airport’s cargo apron and two existing interchanges at E-470/56th and 64th & One on Pena.
