Nelson Construction Acquires 83-Acre Site at 620-Acre Rocky Mountain Rail Park, Kicking Off Activity at New Project

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo., January 27, 2021 – Rocky Mountain Industrials, Inc. has sold an 83-acre development site at its new 620-acre Rocky Mountain Rail Park, a rail-served industrial park located in unincorporated Adams County, Colorado, a suburb of Denver.

The undeveloped land was acquired by Nelson Construction.

Aaron Valdez, Alec Rhodes and Tyler Smith of Cushman & Wakefield, who provide brokerage services for the rail park, represented Rocky Mountain Industrials in the sale. Nelson Construction was represented by Vic Overholser of SDS Commercial and James Spittler, Jr. of NAI Highland, LLC.

“This significant transaction to kick off activity at Rocky Mountain Rail Park is a very exciting moment for the project as well as the surrounding community and is exemplary of the continued path of growth for this area,” said Aaron Valdez. “The rail park provides flexible sale, lease and build-to-suit options for the Greater Denver area.”

The rail park is in unincorporated Adams County, just off Manila Rd and I-70, and adjacent to the Colorado Air and Space Port (formerly Front Range Airport). The location is also proximate to the Denver International Airport, downtown Denver, and several new residential and mixed-use development projects in the region.

Adams County Commissioner Emma Pinter, in conjunction with the project groundbreaking in October, had expressed, “This new rail park will be a catalyst for many economic development opportunities in the county, at and around, our Colorado Air and Space Port. The park, and its prime location, will provide much needed access for current and future businesses across the metro area to ship products cross-country in a faster and more economical way and will provide space for new business opportunities. In addition, this new rail park will foster job growth in our county, which has a direct impact on sustaining a better quality of life for our residents.”
