Denver Aerotropolis: Porteos, The Industrial Development

Denver’s Aerotropolis

Northeast Denver. Northwest Aurora. Northeast Aurora. Denver’s Aerotropolis is blossoming with new home construction, new parks, new dining and shopping destinations.  In other words, this pocket of the metro area is creating new areas and opportunities for connection. Not only have the Denver International Airport, the Gaylord of the Rockies, new developments such as Painted Prairie, High Point and the Aurora Highlands given this booming area recognition, but now the long standing Porteos industrial park is making a name for itself as well.  

What is the Porteos Industrial Project?

It’s been over 4 years since A&C Properties have finished their first phase of the Porteos industrial project.  In that time frame, 600 acres were sold for industrial development and the price per sq ft has doubled. The Colorado Real Estate Journal describes Porteos as, “A business park that initially received little notice within the Denver industrial real estate community has proven itself worthy of national attention.”  

Located east of E-470 and north of I 70, Porteos, the industrial pioneer of northeast Aurora is a 1,287 acre commercial mixed use site. 

  • 2 miles from Denver International Airport main terminal,  and the Westin hotel and the light rail station
  • Close to 3 interchanges at E-470 / 56th & 64th and Peña blvd
  • 3 miles from the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Conference Center

Walmart, Costco, Ryder and Karchar Move In

Once thought to be out of the way and too far from I-70 for commercial entities to pay attention, Porteos has recently attracted some big box companies.  Walmart, Costco, Ryder and Karchar have all acquired big plots of land to build distribution centers. With the amount of visitors that will be attracted to the area, there are now talks of adding retail and hospitality venues.

Along with these globally known names, JAG Logistics has already made a home at Porteos. According to their website, “Encompassing approximately 250 acres of commercial and industrial zoned land, JAG Logistics Center at DEN is developed, owned and managed by J.A. Green (JAG), a family owned and operated business since 1941, with extensive expertise in airport adjacent development.  JAG is committed to developing real estate solutions for companies not only connected to logistics or airfreight, but any company seeking high quality, column-free space proximate to a major transportation hub.”
