DTC Design & Development

Statement of Purpose

The Denver Technological Center has often been described as the finest business park in North America. The aesthetic and fiscal value of the properties has outpaced other area sub markets including the central business district in Denver for many years. This quality is maintained through the implementation of protective covenants, which include strict architectural controls. These covenants establish a high set of standards for planning and design, which are fair to all parties, while maintaining exceptional value for each property within the Denver Technological Center.

Protective Covenants

The Protective Covenants of Denver Technological Center legally apply to all land that is part of DTC, regardless of ownership and are independent of the zoning and land use regulations of local governments.

Applicable Documents

The system of land use control created by the Covenants includes not only the Covenants but also a Master Plan, Review Procedures, and Design Criteria. These documents are available through the Architectural Control Committee offices or by using the following link to obtain DTC Design Criteria and Submitted Procedures online. 

Architectural Control Committee

The Covenants and supporting documents are administered and enforced by an Architectural Control Committee ("ACC"). A current listing of members can be found below.

Activities Necessitating Review

Under the Covenants, any proposals to construct, modify or demolish improvements within DTC must obtain plan approval from the ACC prior to commencement. The ACC's review and approval process also applies to signage, changes in property use, and maintenance activities that take place on or with respect to property that is part of DTC. The ACC meets on a regular basis to review plan submittals. After the ACC approves a plan submittal, an applicant may proceed with a project, but only in strict compliance with the terms and conditions of approval. The ACC performs periodic site inspections, both during development and on an ongoing basis thereafter to ensure compliance.

Meeting Schedule and Location

The ACC meets monthly at the Shea Properties Offices. Projects are placed on the meeting agenda after applications are made at Staff level meetings at least two weeks prior to a meeting.

Committee Membership

The Architectural Control Committee is made up of six (6) regular members and one (1) associate member, with one position currently vacant. Of these six (6), at least two (2) members must be architects and one (1) member must be currently engaged in land planning practice.
