Date set for Colorado regen RFQ

Denver is to launch a request for qualifications process for a 60-acres site in 2019 as part of the National Western Center (NWC) campus.

The City and County of Denver will release a RFQ to industry March 1, 2019 for a development partner for The Triangle project. Phases 3-8 (aka The Triangle) will complete the NWC campus and key assets.

An industry forum will take place the week of January 28 and questions are to be directed to the Performance Based Infrastructure (PBI) Office.

Required assets for the 60-acre campus assets include:

  • Redevelopment of the 1909 historic building
  • New 10,000-seat arena
  • New Expo Hall
  • Supporting structured parking

These assets are to occupy approximately 18 acres of the Triangle site with remaining portions of the site, approximately 42-acres, for development of other revenue-generating real estate uses.

The city has received strong interest from industry and to allow a fair and competitive process, and one that respects proposers’ time and proprietary information, the Mayor’s Office and the developing PBI Office have provided direction that the city will not be accepting unsolicited proposals for future phases of the campus.

“The Triangle will complete our commitment to environmental clean-up of the site, ensure the Stock Show remains in Denver and viable and will create jobs for the next 100 years,” said Mayor Michael Hancock. “We call upon industry to bring expertise and innovation as our partner to complete this campus.”
