Grants Used to Clean Up Old Freight Center and Create an Office Park

Regional Administrator Rick Garcia discusses the new office space with Councilwoman Judy Montero-who leases space in an adjacent building.

Community Planning and Development (CPD) funds and Brownfields Economic Development Initiative (BEDI) grants were used to clean up an old trucking freight/taxi dispatch center and create an office park.

Regional Administrator Rick M. Garcia joined Denver Mayor Guillermo (Bill) V. Vidal and City Council member Judy Montero to celebrate the Grand Opening of FREIGHT, the newest phase of development at the TAXI mixed-use campus, Feb. 15.

The TAXI development is supported by Denver's Office of Economic development using financial assistance of HUD's Brownfield Economic Development Initiative grant, as well as HUD Section 108 financing.

This third renovation phase is named FREIGHT reflecting the reuse of an existing 30,000 square-foot former trucking terminal. The Zeppelin Development project is fully leased to 13 new economy and creative businesses.
