Don’t miss the 17th Annual Rocky Mountain Real Estate Challenge presented by Land Title Guarantee Company—a real world, development  competition between MBA student teams from the University of Colorado and University of Denver! 

This year’s featured project is The Denver Shops site - a 40.5 acre site located in the Globeville neighborhood of Denver at 5151 Bannock Street. 

‘The Challenge’ is the premier real estate competition that pairs graduate-level students from the University of Colorado and the University of Denver and industry leaders in the Colorado real estate community to reinvent an existing commercial real estate site. As major employers identify large cities for their future campuses, they look to innovative urban centers for ideas that can transform the places we live, work and play into high functioning ecosystems and engaging experiences. The Denver Shops seeks to be that model.

Located in the Globeville neighborhood within the City and County of Denver, this forty-plus acre site at The Denver Shops is an ideal project focus for these real estate graduate students. Formerly known as the Colorado Trade Center, the property was acquired by project sponsor Conscience Bay Company in 2015. 

Conscience Bay Company has restored the original name, The Denver Shops, to honor the unique history of the site. In 1922 the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroad opened the Locomotive Shops and for decades the site was referred to as The Denver Shops throughout the community. Read More about the site here.

Join Land Title Guarantee Company and NAIOP Colorado on May 2nd as we cheer on the competing MBA Students from CU and DU as they present their plans for the Denver Shops Site in front of over 700 real estate professionals!
