Good Neighbor Agreement

Kentro Group worked with the neighborhood and special project task force created by the neighborhood on a framework for a Good Neighbor Agreement that outlines some additional commitments Kentro made to the neighborhood. Here is a link to the Good Neighbor Agreement.


CDOT moved its headquarters to a new building located at 2829 W Howard Place, Denver, CO in Summer of 2018.  State law requires that Property owned by the State of Colorado must be offered first to local government entities.  The City and County of Denver exercised the option to acquire both 4201 E Arkansas Avenue and 2000 S Holly Street.  Denver selected Kentro Group to develop the two properties based on confidence in delivering a project beneficial to the community.
