The University of Colorado is working to finalize its expansion of athletic facilities in Boulder. CU Boulder Athletic Director Rick George says that the new facilities will not only benefit the student athletes, but the business community as well.
The expansion will feature a high performance sports medicine center that is open to the public, as well as retail spaces and meeting spaces. The meeting spaces would help the university attract small to medium-sized events and conferences that are currently held in other locations outside of the city, the article noted.
One of the spaces — a 9,900 square-foot Touchdown Club — would become one of the Boulder’s largest meeting spaces, able to host more than 1,000 people at a time when rented out on non-game days. George said he believes that many businesses around the nation would be interested in having their meetings and conferences in Boulder because there is so much that the town has to offer once business has concluded for the day.
The 12,000 square-feet of retail space could include a mixture of local business and national chains, as well as service businesses such as banks, George explained. Additionally, the increase in meeting space could further push the city’s need — and its ability to fill — new hotel rooms.
Boulder is an attractive place to be, not just for businesses planning their events here, but also to businesses planning to relocate here and for the people who work for those businesses.
