Nine New Businesses Commit to Denver’s Central Park Project

Nine new businesses are planning to join Equity Ventures Commercial Development, Wall Development Group and Evergreen Development’s three mixed-use development projects currently under construction in Denver’s Central Park neighborhood. The businesses span retail, restaurant, hospitality and health services.

The equal co-developers and co-owners are developing the projects totaling 31 acres. The Runway North and Runway South projects are located at the I-70 and Central Park Boulevard interchange, with more than a quarter million vehicles per day. The Control Tower project is located at the epicenter of the Central Park neighborhood adjacent to the historic Stapleton air traffic control tower, at the intersection of Central Park and Martin Luther King boulevards.

“Despite the challenges we’ve faced during the pandemic, we feel very fortunate to see how the Central Park community has come together to demonstrate resilience while maintaining focus on the opportunity ahead,” said Christopher Herndon, Denver city councilman of District 8.

Five businesses are slated to initially join the partnership’s 12.8-acre Runway North project, which sits at the northwest corner of the development, with additional leasing opportunities available. Some of the businesses include:

  • Chili’s – Leasing a 5,023-square-foot building with a patio for outdoor seating
  • PNC Bank – Leasing a 2,293-square-foot branch with a drive-thru ATM
  • Raising Cane’s – Leasing a 3,467-square-foot restaurant with a patio and drive-thru
