Gaylord Rockies Resort was anything but a sure bet

ALDO SVALDI, of the Denver Post, has a great article about Gaylord Rockies Resort and Conference Center and the resistance faced in building the center.

A day may come when people take the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in Aurora for granted. Kind of like how Coors Field, the Colorado Convention Center or Denver International Airport seem like they were always meant to be there. Yet, the bitterly contested project, set to open soon south of DIA, teetered on the edge of failure more than once. There was nothing inevitable about it. ... more »

Smart Cities Promise a New Way of Living

Urban Land has a great article regarding Smart Cities that are being constructed around the world. They put a great deal of focus on Peña Station NEXT

Already, one of the Peña Station Next development’s buildings has been completed—the gleaming, solar-powered 112,500-square-foot (10,500 sq m) edifice that houses Panasonic Enterprise Solutions’ operations and technology center. In the streets, workers are installing the wirelessly controlled light-emitting diode (LED) streetlights that will illuminate the mixed-use complex, providing as much as a 70 percent energy savings over conventional lampposts. But that is just the start. Panasonic and local developer L.C. Fulenwider, which are partnering on the project with the city of Denver and an assortment of other local stakeholders, envision a dense mixed-use project—including 1.5 million square feet (139,000 sq m) of office space, 500,000 square feet (47,000 sq m) of retail uses, and 2,500 residences—that will double as a proving ground for exotic technology. When the $500 million project is completed in ten to 12 years, it will be a landscape where virtually every object—from lighting to parking meters—will be connected to the internet and equipped with sensors and/or cameras to supply a continuous stream of data to the development’s managers, who also will be able to control them via cloud-based apps. ... more »

Seven Things to Know About DIA's New Welcome Sign

DIA partnered with Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Co. — yes, that Panasonic, that makes everything from cameras to microwaves — and real estate developer LC Fulenwider to light up Peña Boulevard.

First came Blucifer, the larger-than-life blue horse greeting passersby on their way to and from Denver International Airport, a sculpture that Denverites love and loathe equally. Maybe it's the demonic, glistening red eyes; the wild, wind-whipped mane; or that ghastly shade of blue fit for Hades himself that keeps "Mustang" in the public eye. ... more »
