On Monday, April 6 Glendale civic leaders held a well-attended press conference to announce specifics about a new 42-acre development branded Glendale 180. Construction will begin in Fall 2015, at a total cost of $75 million. "This is a return to Glendale's roots," said Mary Beth Jenkins, president of The Laramie Company, which is coordinating leasing of Glendale 180. Serving as a bridge to the future while also channeling the best of Glendale's past, it's not simply a collection of businesses surrounded by a sea of asphalt. It's open spaces, an active community, and the same breezy disposition found while exploring Colorado's wilder areas.” For more information visiti glendale180.com.
