Denver Tech Center Homes for Sale
Denver Tech Center CO Real Estate
The Denver Technological Center (DTC) was established in 1962. Back then, development of an “office park,” 20 minutes east of downtown Denver was a rather novel idea.
But the idea was simple: establish a true a first-rate environment, where people could both live, and work for years to come. Denver Tech Center is a mix of corporate complexes, businesses of all sizes, retail shops, restaurants, sports bars, hotels, parks, and residential areas.
Today the DTC forms the gateway to Denver’s southeast business corridor, and is itself nationally recognized as one of the nation’s premier business centers. DTC is considered to be one of the major birthplaces of Cable Television. United Cablevision, United Artists Cable, and later AT&T Broadband all had their start, and still have major infrastructure located in and around the Denver Tech Center. During the 1980s, DTC was referred as "CableLand" a name created as the industry was in its infancy.
Due to atmospheric conditions and elevation, a company can utilize Satellite technology unlike any other place on the planet. This is why companies like Jones Intercable, Starz, Encore, Dish Network, Direct TV, Comcast, as well as the US Government's NORAD facilities, In Colorado Springs, all have major infrastructure investments in the Denver Tech Center. It is estimated that 85% of all major content goes through the DTC before it is received by end users on cable, satellite.
And even though the Denver Tech Center is comprised primarily of office space, upscale shopping at nearby Park Meadows Mall, and Southwest Plaza serve the residents of several well-planned concentrations of apartments, condominiums, and high-end single family homes in the area.
The Denver City Council recently approved a zoning measure that would add more than one million-square-feet for additional residential development, insuring that the original vision for this urban environment for the future, continues to grow and prosper.
