The Denver Post - - BUSINESS - — John Wenzel, The Den­ver Post

A mas­sive video pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity planned for Parker could cre­ate more than 4,000 jobs for the south metro area, of­fi­cials teased in a press an­nounce­ment Wed­nes­day.

The Redbarre Dig­i­tal Me­dia & Tech­nol­ogy Cam­pus would oc­cupy about 1.9 mil­lion square feet of mixed-use space in the Com­park Vil­lage sub­di­vi­sion, just north of E-470 and west of Cham­bers Road in Parker.

The planned cam­pus would in­clude a 70-acre sound­stage “un­like any­thing in North Amer­ica,” ac­cord­ing to the press state­ment.

The news will be of­fi­cially re­leased Aug. 11.

Redbarre, whose clients in­clude HBO, MTV and ESPN, plans to part­ner with the Town of Parker and the Pana­sonic City

NOW smart-tech­nol­ogy project to open the fa­cil­ity in 2020.

The project has not been for­mally sub­mit­ted to Parker of­fi­cials, but back­ers have been “do­ing their due dili­gence,” Parker’s deputy direc­tor of com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment Ja­son Rogers said.

“The coun­cil has been made aware of this for some time, but we don’t have a project on file or cur­rently un­der re­view.”
