Here’s why some of the world’s biggest retailers, and many others, are flocking to north metro Denver

De Vita listed a population that has boomed since 2000, strong job growth and the availability of a blockbuster site right at the Interstate 25-136th Avenue interchange as nuggets that convinced Simon that the north metro city was the place for its 330,000-square-foot Denver Premium Outlets, set to open late next year and bring 800 jobs to the city.
