Before we build anything we understand the area, reach out to the community and take part in the planning process. We are hands on. We dont believe in passive development – we roll up our sleeves and take the lead on design, permitting, leasing and construction management. After a project is built, we engage in property management, asset management, event programming and brokerage. We are social activists, changemakers and community leaders, and for us it never starts or ends with a physical building. Our focus is on the people that live, work and gather in them.
For Zeppelin, development doesn’t end at the front door. We believe that individual buildings are part of a city’s infrastructure and that they have the ability to impact society in powerful ways . We have championed initiatives that are important to the communities we belong to.
Members of our team belong to over 30 neighborhood boards and committees including involvement in many steering and stakeholder committees for the City of Denver. At every step of our process, we work with the community to ensure the projects are inclusive and beneficial to the existing community and its growth.
