Colorado Tech Neighborhood Guide: Denver Tech Center

December 28, 2015

Located well south of downtown Denver, the Denver Tech Center (DTC) is the traditional hub of Colorado’s cable and telecommunications industries. The DTC was designed back in the early 1970s, on prime real estate where I-25 and I-225, and a major fiber optic line intersect. Cable companies like AT&T Broadband and United Cablevision both got their start there, and today many large companies have a presence in the area. Some smaller tech companies, especially those that do business with larger telecommunications firms, have chosen the area along I-25 near the Tech Center as their home.

CBRE’s take: "Located roughly 12 miles south of downtown, the Denver Technology Center, or DTC, has historically served as home to Denver's Telecommunications and Cable industries. Companies like DirecTV, Comcast and Level 3 Communications have thrived in the area and continue to strengthen the submarket. There are a handful of other technology companies located in the area, including Cool Planet,

and Square 2 Financial, but it is the DTC's long-standing stature as the foundation of Denver’s cable/telecom scene that will maintain its steady appeal to certain types of technology companies in the years ahead." - Nicole Berkman, CBRE Occupier Advisory and Transaction Services, Technology and Media Practice
