Concept Colorado is a new and dynamic 11-acre art complex being developed on the edge of Denver by Jeanie Nuanes King, a long time Denver arts advocate, developer and artist. The project, located in Commerce City, will offer art studios, galleries, food and other amenities; and eventually live/work spaces. The project directly addresses space concerns related to escalating real estate prices that have impacted and displaced many in Denver's creative community. Concept Colorado will provide clean, new, affordable and economically stable long-term space for artists and creative businesses – with rents as low as $1 a square foot. Ms. King is especially interested in the community-building aspects of the project, and appreciates Commerce City leaders for their support of her vision and their belief in the value of the arts community. Ground breaking is expected in early autumn.
