Crossroads Awarded 2017 Phoenix Award at the Annual National Brownfields Conference

DENVER, CO – December 07, 2017 – Trammell Crow Company (TCC), along with partner Principal Real Estate Investors (PrinREI), announces that Crossroads Commerce Park (Crossroads) has been recognized as the 2017 Phoenix Award Winner for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 8 at the National Brownfields Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on December 6, 2017. The Awards ceremony held Wednesday evening honored distinguished individuals and groups whose projects are recognized nationally for outstanding achievement of excellence in brownfield redevelopment. 

“Crossroads Commerce Park has been a project in the making for decades, as it is built on the site of the Globeville smelter which operated from the 1880’s through 1986,” said Bill Mosher, Senior Managing Director with TCC’s Denver office. “Many neighbors, governmental entities and private remediation and development experts contributed to a successful strategy to prepare the site for a new role in our community.”

Some of the many organizations that have been integral in the evolution of the site include the remediation and horizontal development by Brownfield Partners and later, EnviroFinance Group (EFG), the brownfield redeveloper that remediated the site and sold the land to TCC, as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE), Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Adams County, the City & County of Denver and the Elyria-Swansea-Globeville Neighborhood Association.

Crossroads is now home to nearly 1 million square feet of Class A industrial buildings offering state of the art multi-tenant spaces as well as build-to-suit options for users. “This project shows the benefits of public/private cooperation and the foresight of many visionary companies working together to bring back to Globeville significant improvements to infrastructure and hundreds of jobs as well that benefit the community,” stated Ann Sperling, Senior Director with TCC.

Murray & Stafford is the general contractor and Ware Malcomb is the architect for Crossroads. The Newmark Grubb Knight Frank team of Mike Wafer, Tim D’Angelo, and Mike Wafer Jr. represent TCC and Principal in the leasing and marketing. Colorado Business Bank also has participated in financing three of the completed build-to-suit projects at Crossroads.
