In 1962, George Wallace had an idea. He wanted to establish a high quality environment where people could live and work with ample space for growth. Thus was born the suburban office park, an unknown concept at the time but soon to become the Denver Tech Center, a nationally recognized premiere business center.
Founded with only 40 acres, the Denver Tech Center has steadily grown to a campus like complex of 922 acres. Located at the junction of two major freeways, I-25 and I-225, the DTC forms the gateway to Denver’s southeast business corridor. Over fourteen million square feet have been developed, most of which is used for office space. But flourishing from that is a remarkable development of upscale retail shops, high end hotels, residential apartment complexes and condominiums, single family residences, specialty shops and restaurants.
George Wallace created an urban center in a suburban setting. Today, the Denver Tech Center has emerged as a neighborhood with a real sense of community, a place George Wallace would be very proud of.
