Denver’s Commercial Retail Real Estate Market is on the Rise and There’s no Sign of Stopping!
Coming in second behind San Francisco, Denver is expected to outperform all other global retail markets at 7 percent for the years to come. Last year alone, 19 properties in the metro area sold for over $100 million, that’s a combined $2.6 billion. Surprisingly this is only the beginning for the mile high city.
As the technology and finance world continues to be in high demand, cities like Denver are at the forefront for high-end retailers to set up shop. Showing a promising future in e-commerce and the need for a company’s physical presence in the Rocky Mountains, Denver is the place to be. CBRE Industrial and Logistics’ executive vice president, Jim Bolt predicts the demand for bigger buildings for these such companies and Denver can provide just that; promising buildings as big or bigger than one million-square-feet.
