PARKER – A video production facility planned for Parker could create more than 4,000 jobs for the south metro area, officials said in a press announcement Wednesday.
The Denver Post reports that 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 a press statement, and offer feature film, television and digital media creators and crews “an unfettered data-centric production environment in metro Denver.”
Gov. John Hickenlooper will join Redbarre officials and others to formally announce the project at 11:30 a.m. at the West Foyer in the Capitol on Aug. 11.
Redbarre, a media consultancy firm whose clients include HBO, MTV and ESPN, plans to partner with the town of Parker and the Panasonic CityNOW smart-technology project to open the facility in 2020.
