Thrive Real Estate Group has an article about the Pena Station Next development. Here is an excerpt:

“The concept is to make it a smart, sustainable community, not just a business park,” said Ferd Belz, senior vice president of real estate for Denver-based L.C. Fulenwider. “It will be truly mixed-use.”

L.C. Fulenwider is the master developer of the 400-acre Peña Station NEXT, a mixed-use, energy-smart development to be anchored by Panasonic Enterprise Solutions’ headquarters.

Panasonic’s 112,000-square-foot building should open late this summer, a four-minute walk from the rail station. Xcel Energy is building a smart grid to store excess solar power for backup use by the technology company.
