Space Defense – Located just 10 minutes from Buckley Air Force Base, the area benefits from a strong aerospace and defense industry presence, a crucial component of Colorado’s technology economy. Colorado’s geographical location provides one-bounce satellite communications to Europe and Asia, and due to our Mountain Time Zone, Colorado companies can efficiently conduct business with both continents during the same business day. Raytheon Company, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin and The Boeing Company all have major operations near Buckley Air Force Base.

Health Sciences – Five minutes from Denver Connection, Aurora’s Fitzsimons Health Sciences Center is a key component of Colorado’s bioscience industry. The Anschutz Medical Campus and Fitzsimons Life Science District redevelopment project consists of one square mile undergoing a $5.2 billion transformation at the northwest corner of I-225 and Colfax Avenue. The site, which currently employees approximately 20,000, is home to the University of Colorado Denver health sciences operations, the University of Colorado Hospital, Children’s Hospital Colorado, the new Veterans Administration Hospital, and several other centers for healthcare, biomedical research and workforce development.

Wildlife – Located just northwest of the site, the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge is a 15,000-acre prairie, wetland and woodland habitat. The land has a unique story – it has survived the test of time and transitioned from farmland, to war-time manufacturing site, to wildlife sanctuary. It may be one of the finest conservation success stories in history and a place where wildlife thrives.
