The Colorado government has selected NexCore Group as the master developer of the Global Energy Park (Glo Park), a renewable energy research and commercialization center in Golden, Colorado.
The center is intended to be a hub for academia, government and industry to drive the transition to clean, equitable, renewable and sustainable energy solutions. It will be located near the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and feature multiple buildings totaling 400,000 square feet, an outdoor amphitheater and tenant amenities.
According to the company, the center will also feature an open, collaborative design, providing partner tenants with access to NREL’s laboratory infrastructure, computing and data-processing capabilities, advanced research and testing resources and equipment.
The project will prioritize sustainability and use advanced green design and building technologies, the company says. Construction is expected to begin in late 2023, with completion planned in 2025. Preleasing has already begun.
Todd Varney, Chief Development Officer and Managing Partner at NexCore, stated, “That effort is fortified with the presence of NREL, research investment by the federal government through the Department of Energy, academic support and collaboration among Colorado's research universities, and a worldwide demand for access to these innovators from private industry.”
