5 Reasons To Attend Bisnow’s Denver Hospitality And Mixed-Use Summit


Denver, the largest city in the Rocky Mountains, continues to be a magnet for tourism and residential development. More than 36 million people visited the Mile High City in 2022, several Fortune 500 companies call the Denver area home, and the city’s population has grown approximately 20% since 2010.

While the region’s momentum has slowed somewhat since the pandemic, Denver continues to be a hot place for commercial real estate development, highlighted by its busy hospitality and mixed-use sectors.

Already home to more than 13,000 hotel rooms, Denver continues to add hospitality properties. The ones scheduled to open in 2024 range from boutique hotels to developments with hundreds of rooms to serve leisure and business travelers. A new entrant to the city's hospitality scene will include the first hotel in the U.S. to remove more carbon from the atmosphere than it emits. 

Denver is also a hotbed for the mixed-used asset class, with developers, architects and contractors creating properties that appeal to today’s preferences for live-work-play environments. These include properties that seamlessly integrate residential with retail, as well as the city’s largest urban infill project, which will include several acres of open space to appeal to residents and visitors.

To take a deep dive into development in the Denver area, Bisnow is hosting its Denver Hospitality and Mixed-Use Summit on May 21 at the McNichols Building in Civic Center Park.
