Situated in the southeast Denver corridor, the Denver Tech Center or better known as the DTC, its real estate is centered around the geometric architecture, a futuristic live-work development built in 1962. An important economic and cultural center just 15 minutes from downtown Denver, the DTC grew during the 1970s energy boom to become one of Denver’s most important economic centers. Most of the Tech Center is devoted to offices but the development also includes apartments, condos, and high end single family homes along with strategically located hotels, stores and restaurants. There are also a number of subdivisions surrounding the center. DTC homes have easy access to downtown Denver and both airports
The DTC was established in the early 1970s, and cable companies United Cablevision, United Artists Cable, and later AT&T Broadband, all had their start in, and still have major infrastructure around, the Denver Tech Center. In the Colorado area, Bill Daniels and John C. Malone were early adopters who shepherded many standards in cable technology still used today. The Denver Tech Center was a major reason for Denver Regional Council expansion of the T-REX expansion into the Denver Technological Center.
The DTC, is a business and economic trading center located in Colorado in the southeastern portion of the Denver Metropolitan Area, within portions of the cities of Denver and Greenwood Village. It is home to several major businesses and corporations. The DTC roughly corresponds to the area surrounding the I-25 corridor between I-225 and Arapahoe Road, bounded on the east side by Cherry Creek State Park. It is20- 30 minutes from downtown Denver, with easy access to the Denver International Airport.
In December of 2005, the Rocky Mountain News reported that the City Council approved a zoning measure reducing future commercial projects by one million-square-feet in DTC West, and adding slightly over 1.4 million-square-feet for residential development. While the beginnings were commercial development activities, there are a number of upscale neighborhoods and developments within the DTC area boundaries. Outlying neighborhoods also include parts of the cities of Centennial, Greenwood Village and Lonetree.
