Nexus at DIA to Gain Two New Buildings

One of the largest industrial business parks near Denver International Airport will soon welcome more than 500,000 additional square feet of warehouse/distribution space. Becknell Industrial will break ground on two new buildings at Nexus at DIA this month, which are being marketed for sale or lease by CBRE’s Jim Bolt and Mike Camp.

The larger of the two buildings will be 329,940 square feet located at the intersection of 84th Avenue and Quintero Road, approximately 8 miles west of Denver International Airport. The second building will be adjacent to the first and encompass 170,500 square feet. Both buildings will have dock and drive-in doors, 130-foot truck courts, dedicated trailer parking, clear heights ranging from 32 to 36 feet and the ability for built-to-suit office space.

The site is zoned PUD, allowing for a variety of uses. The newly developed industrial park is designed for institutional-grade warehouse/distribution, office and flex buildings. The property is located in Commerce City near two significant sort hubs for UPS and FedEx.

“Becknell recognized early on the potential opportunity that the Nexus park offered to Denver’s industrial market, and the impressive roster of tenants that have already committed to the park is a testament to its compelling offering,” said Bolt.

Nexus is already home to several global Fortune 500 companies: McLane Foods with a 250,000-square-foot cold storage and distribution facility and Haier with a 540,000-square-foot distribution facility. In addition, Lowes is building a 1-million-square-foot facility within the park and a confidential tenant is under construction on a 281,000-square-foot middle-mile facility at the site.
