Denver-based Black Creek Group has acquired 165 acres to develop the firm’s largest project to date. Upon completion, the two-building Class A industrial park will total two million square feet. The development will be completed in two phases. Eric Hawk, partner of Archway Properties, the co-developer in this transaction, spent two years assembling 42 individual parcels with 18 different property owners.

Construction on Phase I, a one-million-square-foot facility, is scheduled to commence in Q3 2021, with completion anticipated in Q3 2022. Construction on Phase II, a one-million-square-foot facility with an adjacent excess trailer lot, will be reserved for build-to-suits or a future speculative project. The site offers flexibility as the buildings can accommodate multiple tenants.
