AURORA, Colo. — Denver International Airport is taking another step forward on a large real estate project located on E. 56th Avenue between Pena Boulevard and Tower Road.

Right now, authorities are beginning to develop the 3.8-acre parcel of land as a part of Pena Station Next development, a multi-tenant retail development that is a part of the airport's real estate portfolio called Denver’s Global Gateway.

Developers began preparing the land in 2018 and the airport plans to issue a request for offers in the 4th quarter of this year.

The entire Denver’s Global Gateway development will cover 16,000 acres and, according to the airport, will be the largest commercial project connected to an airport in the United States.

The plan is for the entire area to have direct access to DIA, multi-family homes, restaurants and entertainment.
