The Anshutz Medical Center is found close to the Stapleton Residential and Town Center development. This area is also very close to the Fitzsimmons Army Medical Center, which hasn't operated since 1999. The base was realigned and closed, which left this prime location vacant. It's still a prime location and perfect for a medical campus. With the close proximity to the airport and many other resources, this is a great place to use for a medical campus.
The University of Colorado is making this happen by adding the fourth medical campus to their network called the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. It has taken over the area and become the newest medical research and health care facility in the nation. It has a strong focus on community engagement, clinical car,…

We are just days away from the West Line opening and just about every local media outlet has run a story of some type. This is a very important move and many are a bit worried about this move. The light rail is popular with some, but others don't see the benefit. However, this is a great way to get around and it fits perfectly for the young and the old.
With the way Denver is set up and the influx of younger residents back into the city, the light rail can help them get around without needing to spend money on a vehicle. This gives young families, couples and singles an opportunity to actually save money towards a home or pay off some of those student loans they've been keeping around like pets.
The West Line will expand the ability for those looking to get…
