New Business Review

Arvada is a beautiful first-ring suburb of Denver, the Mile High City. Arvada retains its small-town feel even with its estimated population of 106,433. Established in 1870, Arvada enjoys a rich history, quiet tree-lined neighborhoods, and a robust mix of business. Our strong civic leadership balances quality of life with an understanding and support of business and economic development. The City has been recognized at the state and national level for its business retention program.

Arvada’s land encompasses nearly 23,000 acres; approximately 1,000 acres remains available for commercial and industrial development. Three proximate interstate highways provide easy access to the larger metropolitan region and Denver International Airport. An extraordinary trail system links with Denver trails on the east and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains to the west, punctuated with thousands of acres of parks and open spaces.

Arvada’s historic downtown, provides an eclectic shopping and dining experience, and in the future will include one of three area transit stops as part of the metropolitan FasTracks light rail system. The City takes great pride in the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, the largest multi-disciplinary art and cultural center in the country.

Arvada’s diverse economic base, highly educated workforce, low crime rate, and superb quality of life have helped shape our community into one of the most attractive and competitive cities in the Centennial State!
