Parker to benefit from new digital media company

September 9, 2017 by  

Executives from Redbarre, Governor John Hickenlooper, and officials from Parker recently announced that a new Redbarre Digital Media and Technology Campus will be coming to Parker by 2020.

The campus will cover 70 acres and will be in the Compark area. The mixed-use development will measure 1.9 million square feet in area and focus on television, digital media production, and feature film.

Matt Carlson, Parker Business Recruitment Manager, said that a site plan application still needs to be submitted by the company, but most of the property is under contract and the company has a right of first refusal on the remainder. Carlson added that the project is still in the early stages, but the endorsement by the governor means increases hopes that the project will be undertaken.

In addition to the 4,000 jobs that Redbarre plans to bring to Parker, other businesses in the area will prosper as people working at the new facility will need to eat and take advantage of other services.

Mayor Mike Waid added that once the studio is built, other facilities will follow, such as a boutique hotel, office buildings, and retail space.

Companies like this often consider using flyers to keep people informed of the progress of the campuses and other buildings, and to let them know when they will officially be opened.
