A large construction and engineering company will open a regional headquarters, with 1,100 employees, in the RidgeGate area of Lone Tree.
Over the next year, Kiewit expects to hire about 200 additional employees for the campus, which will be adjacent to the Sky Ridge Light Rail station that is scheduled to open in May, according to a city news release.
“This project is an exciting addition to our vibrant business community, and validates the city's investments in our multimodal transportation network and arts, recreation and open-space amenities,” Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet said in the news release.
Kiewit hopes to open in Lone Tree by 2021.
Kiewit's home office is in Omaha, Nebraska. The company has roots dating to 1884, and it has projects and offices in Canada, Mexico and Australia, in addition to the United States, according to Kiewit's website. The company had $8.6 billion in revenue in 2016, the site says.
The move is a product of collaboration between the following entities, the release says: the state office of economic development and international trade, the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp., the city, Douglas County, the Denver South Economic Development Partnership and RidgeGate Investments.
“Kiewit's project is exactly the kind of corporate campus and partner for which we have been holding out this premier transit-oriented site, and we believe Kiewit will benefit from RidgeGate's mixed-use walkable environment and transportation accessibility,” said Keith Simon, executive vice president of RidgeGate's developer, Coventry Development Corp.
