18th Annual Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge
In-Person Networking Dinner & After Party

Hyatt Regency Denver
at Colorado Convention Center

5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Don’t miss the 18th Annual Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge presented by Land Title Guarantee Company—a real world, development  competition between MBA student teams from the University of Colorado and University of Denver! 

This year’s featured project is the Denver International Airport (DEN) site located at 61st Ave. and Peña Blvd. in Denver, Colorado. 

‘The Challenge’ is the premier real estate competition that pairs graduate-level students from the University of Colorado and the University of Denver and industry leaders in the Colorado real estate community to evaluate development opportunities. The focus of the 2020 competition is a project site which is part of the City of Denver and DEN's overall vision to transform some of the thousands of blank acres around the airport into a multi-district commercial zone.

Located adjacent to and immediately east of RTD’s 61st and Peña station, this 60-acre site is an ideal project focus for these real estate graduate students. DEN Real Estate, the division overseeing all airport real estate development, is working in collaboration with stakeholders to be thoughtful stewards of the 16,000 acres of airport land that will soon become a series of linked districts known as Denver’s Global Gateway. Each commercial district has been designed with a unique character and relationship to its surroundings, featuring urban amenities, a connection to nature and a commitment to renewable energy and sustainability. CLICK HERE to Read More about the DEN Site.  

Join Land Title Guarantee Company and NAIOP Colorado on April 28th as we cheer on the competing MBA Students from CU and DU as they present their plans for the Denver Shops Site in front of over 700 real estate professionals!
