Learn more about regenerative development at USGBC Colorado's event.

The National Western Center (NWC) and Colorado State University have embarked on an expansive, 20-plus-year redevelopment of the 250-acre campus. It is one of six portfolio projects that the City of Denver collectively refers to as the North Cornerstone Collaborative. According to the North Cornerstone website, the goal is to coordinate the six portfolio projects under way in these neighborhoods to build a better, greener and more connected North Denver.

At this year’s Commercial Real Estate Forum, USGBC Colorado will explore how the Ethic of Regeneration is being used to guide all planning, design, construction and operational components of the NWC redevelopment plan. Regenerative Development is defined as the process of cultivating the capacity and capability in people, communities and other natural systems to renew, sustain and thrive.

People and communities are at the center of regenerative development, so in the NWC Guiding Principles, you will find a requirement to create net zero districts for energy, waste and water, as well as the directive to create programming that supports neighborhood identity, the local economy, job opportunities and economic development. 

Attend the forum on Tues., August 15 from 7:30–9:30 a.m. to learn more about upcoming opportunities to get involved and to converse with NWC Partners. After a light breakfast and networking, a facilitated panel discussion will be moderated by Mike Biselli, President of Catalyst Health Tech. Attendees will have a chance to ask questions during a Q&A session.
