Don’t miss the 16th Annual Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge—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 RK (RK Mechanical, Inc.) site - a 15 acre site located in the Stapleton neighborhood of northeast Denver. Student teams will evaluate development opportunities to create their own unique individual project. The project is comprised of four separate parcels located at 3800 Xanthia Street, Denver, CO, encompassing 14.97 acres and is bordered by Xanthia Street to the west, 35th Avenue to the south, Yosemite to Central Park Station of RTD's A-Line.  

The RK site represents and exceptional oppotunity for Challenge participants to envision and design a successful transit-oriented development in the award-winning Stapleton neighborhood.

Celebrating its 16th year, the Challenge tasks more than 40 of the state's best and brightest graduate students from the University of Colorado and the University of Denver to evaluate and make recommendations for the RK site. The students will form teams that will compete against one one another for scholarships and the NAIOP Cup!

Join Land Title Guarantee Company and NAIOP Colorado on May 3rd as we cheer on the competing MBA Students from CU and DU as they present their plans for the RK Site in front of over 700 real estate professionals!
