Interested in Enterprise Zone Opportunities?

The Colorado Enterprise Zone (EZ) Program is designed to promote a business-friendly environment in economically distressed areas by offering state income tax credits that incentivize businesses to locate and develop in, and non-profit organizations to assist with the needs of these communities. There are 16 Enterprise Zones and 2 sub-zones in Colorado. A handful of these designated zones/areas are located within the city limits of Brighton, CO. Businesses located in an EZ may qualify for up to nine Enterprise Zone Tax Credits.

A Few Community Highlights

76 Commerce Center Industrial Warehouse Space

In Colorado, real estate is tight and traffic is unmanageable along both Interstates 70 and 25. Understanding this, Hyde Development saw an opportunity to build along the Interstate 76 Corridor right here in Brighton. In 2018, after about a year of working through the development process with the Brighton EDC, Hyde Development broke ground on the 76 Commerce Center, a 1.8 million-square-foot, Class A industrial park. The 76 Commerce Center development brings innovative, first-class ultra-modern industrial space to Adams County and the I-76 corridor. The 122-acre site in Bromley Industrial Park is the largest speculative project to emerge in this growth corridor and is one of the most significant industrial land sales in the Denver area in the last decade. As the region's newest distribution hub, 76 Commerce Center will offer tenants easy access to the entire Denver metropolitan area and the Rocky Mountain region to more efficiently serve the burgeoning front range growth.
