Additionally, we have broken ground on a substantial project that includes a major hotel and commuter-rail station. As the nation's newest major airport and with the geographic size of our operation, we have the capacity to double in size and are well-positioned for future growth as the portal for the Rocky Mountain Region and a key link for products and people throughout the world. DEN is one of the busiest hubs in the world and is the primary economic engine of the state of Colorado, generating more than $22 billion in revenues for the region annually.
Denver is known for great living. We enjoy over 300 days of sunshine annually and tout a population reflecting some of the healthiest, most highly-educated and vibrant people ranked in the US. We also have the additional benefit of our beautiful location being nestled against the Rocky Mountains.
