As dependability on wireless technology continues to grow, so must the reliability of the technological infrastructure. In a world where modern businesses require constant and steadfast connections, innovative and forward thinking landlords and building owners present substantial appeal and value to prospective tenants. In fact, in a world where the internet is almost constantly available at the tip of one’s fingertips, even the once echoed real estate mantra, “location, location, location” no longer holds the weight it once used to. Unless you’re operating a walk-in business that flourishes on spontaneous and emotional impulse purchases, connectivity is arguably as valuable and important as the old real estate mantra...location, location, location.
There are not many cities in America that offer the middle of the country travel start point, over 300 days of sunshine, a vibrant downtown, an extensive city park system and...nearby ski resorts.

Consistently recognized as one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, the capital of Colorado is the most populous city in the state and the 19th most populous city in the country.

Connect Los Angeles is the event that helped launch Connect Media five years ago. The standing-room-only crowd of more than 500 at this year’s Connect LA conference heard a wide-ranging conversation among commercial real estate’s leaders. In addition to five deep- dive panel discussions, there were three special presentations, capped by a salute over cocktails to the latest winners of Connect Media’s Top Broker and Women in Real Estate Awards.
