National Western Center’s longtime shepherd departs as $1.1 billion Denver project nears construction

Sep 14, 2017

The longtime director of Denver’s National Western Center project will depart as the $1.1 billion undertaking is primed for the start of its demolition, environmental cleanup and construction phases. Kelly Leid made the surprise announcement this week that he has decided to return to Denver homebuilder Oakwood Homes after nine years in public sector jobs. Those include working as operations director at Denver Public Schools before joining Mayor Michael Hancock’s administration in 2011, first overseeing development services and then starting the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative  office, where he took on the National Western redevelopment, in 2013. Hancock on Wednesday appointed Gretchen Hollrah, Leid’s deputy in the split-off National Western Center office, as the new executive director. She will start after Leid’s last day, Oct. 2. The director’s salary is $155,436.

The homebuilder, founded by Hancock friend and donor Pat Hammill, was acquired in July by Clayton Properties Group, a division of Berkshire Hathaway. Provided by the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative The National Western Center master plan calls for a series of public plazas, including around a new transit station, as part of a project that will remake an enlarged Stock Show campus. In all, there would be 46 acres of flexible open space on the grounds, connecting to 80 acres on the other side of the South Platte River. The decadelong National Western Center project aims to transform the stock show site into a year-round tourism, event, education and agricultural innovation center. Hollrah takes over ahead of a pivotal year. In 2018, the office is set to move from downtown to the 250-acre National Western campus the city is assembling and will help set up a campus authority with its main partners, the Western Stock Show Association and Colorado State University.
