In 1977, our forerunner company VRG Development was founded by George Thorn as a regional
real estate development firm, later to evolve into Mile High Development
LLC. Over three decades we have been at the center of Denver’s most
exciting urban redevelopment projects, including the development
of the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building in downtown
Denver, Museum Residences designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind, Lakewood
City Commons, home to Lakewood city government as well as Colorado
Center, a 1.5 million square foot urban infill Transit Oriented
Development. Developed in concept with TIAA-CREF, the world’s largest private pension fund.
Since 2009, Mile High Development has entered the affordable housing arena, utilizing Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) to develop the first two senior affordable TOD projects in the Denver metro area, the Apartments at Yale Station and University Station Apartments.
In November 2013, Mile High Development and Corporex Colorado broke ground on The Art Hotel and Office Complex, the final phase of the Denver Art Museum expansion project which began in 2000 with the development of the 980 car Cultural Center Garage.
