Denver's Airport City Concept Unveiled

Today Mayor Michael B. Hancock unveiled Denver’s Airport City Concept at the Airport Cities World Conference and Exhibition, which is being held at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel through the end of the week. Denver’s Airport City concept creates a master plan for developing land within the airport’s property boundaries that is not already dedicated to future runways, taxiways or for other operational purposes. Denver International Airport’s total land mass is 53 square miles, with more than 9,000 acres available for the Airport City development. Around the world, airport cities have been created in a number of places, such as Amsterdam, Hong Kong and Shanghai, to maximize the development and use of airport property, which improves non-airline revenue and helps the facility’s aeronautical function grow to its full capacity.
