Today, the City and County of Denver’s Performance Based Infrastructure Office (PBI) received two Statements of Qualifications in response to the Request for Qualifications for the previously announced National Western Center Triangle Project.

Those teams are:

Triangle Collective comprised of Macquarie Financial Holdings (Infrastructure Equity Member), with Hensel Phelps Construction (Lead Contractor), OVG Facilities and Live Nation Worldwide (Lead Facilities Operators), Fentress Architects and Perkins+Will (Lead Architects), MIG (Lead Urban Designer and Lead Engineer, horizontal), Thornton Tomasetti (Lead Engineer, structural), Hoehn Architects (Historic Rehabilitation Consultant)

“The Triangle will complete our commitment to environmental clean-up of the site, ensuring that the Stock Show remains a viable part of our city and generates jobs in Denver for the next 100 years,” Mayor Michael B. Hancock said. “We know local industry will bring the expertise and innovation as our partner to complete this campus.”

The City is soliciting a Developer to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain approximately $528 million in public facilities, including construction of a 10,000-seat arena, exposition hall, and the rehabilitation of the historic 1909 Stadium Arena Building, which the City intends to adaptively reuse as a public market, as well as supporting parking and associated infrastructure.  The project also includes approximately 42 acres of property for private real estate development.  The National Western Center campus is expected to draw over 1.1 million new visitors annually. The Triangle is identified as Phases 3-8 in the Master Plan and will complete the National Western Center campus.

“We are very pleased with the strong interest in the project. This is a unique and critically important component of helping complete the NWC campus vision while delivering much needed facilities and amenities to the surrounding neighborhoods and the broader Denver community,” PBI Interim Executive Director Emily Hauber said. “We look forward to a thorough evaluation process and working with the shortlisted teams to deliver this transformational redevelopment project.”

Request for Proposals is expected to be released in Fall of 2019.
