Who We Are

With room to grow, the city of Thornton is Colorado’s sixth largest city. The city is only half built-out, offering plentiful opportunities for commercial development and easy access to I-25, I-70, E-470, Hwy 36, and Denver International Airport. Thornton is located just 8 miles north of downtown Denver and within an hour’s drive of all of the region’s major educational and research institutions.
