Denver CO is prioritizes economic prosperity for the City of Denver, its businesses, neighborhoods and residents. The city works with a wide variety of community partners to create a local environment that stimulates balanced growth. This occurs through job creation, business assistance, housing options, neighborhood redevelopment and the development of a skilled workforce.
Denver, located in the center of the Front Range Urban Corridor between the Rocky Mountains to the west and the High Plains to the east, changes into a gorgeous area in the fall. Denver’s nickname, the “Mile-High City”, happened because the City measures one mile above sea level. As a result of Denver growing to the largest city within 500 miles (800 km), it grew and became a natural location for storage and distribution of goods and services to the Mountain States, Southwest states, as well as all western states. Another benefit for distribution is that Denver CO is nearly equally distant from large cities of the Midwest, such as Chicago and St. Louis and some large cities of the West Coast, such as Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Over the years, the city has been home to other large corporations to include nonprofits — making Denver CO a key trade point for the country. Several well-known companies originated in or have relocated to Denver.
Molson Coors Brewing Company established its U.S. headquarters in Denver in 2005. Its subsidiary and regional wholesale distributor, Coors Distributing Company, is in NW Denver. The Newmont Mining Corporation, the 2nd largest gold producer in North America and one of the largest in the world,maintains its headquartered in Denver.
Geography also allows Denver to have a considerable government presence. Many federal agencies have offices in the Denver area. Many US defense and space project companies come to Denver because of the large government presence. Additionally, because Denver is the capital of the State of Colorado, more jobs are brought to the city. The Denver area is home to the former nuclear weapons plant Rocky Flats, the Denver Federal Center, Byron G. Rogers Federal Building, United States Courthouse, Denver Mint, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. In 2005, a $310.7 million expansion program for the Colorado Convention Center was completed. This doubled the convention center’s size. The hope was that the Convention center’s expansion would make the city one of the top 10 convention cities.
