History

In 1995, Fitzsimons Army Base was officially put on the Base Realignment and Closure list. Officials from Health Sciences Center, University of Colorado Hospital and the City of Aurora presented an innovative proposal to the Department of Defense in Washington, D.C. The proposal emphasized the benefits of reusing the decommissioned base to build — from the ground up — a world-class, academic health center, including state-of-the-art healthcare facilities. In addition, the campus will be directly adjacent to the Colorado Bioscience Park Aurora, providing opportunities to take University research discoveries into the stream of commerce at an accelerated rate, through affiliation with the biotech companies located in the 160-acre research park. With unprecedented support from the city of Aurora, the state of Colorado and federal entities, the Fitzsimons master plan calls for up to 15 million square feet of new construction. At build out, more than 32,000 people will be employed at Fitzsimons. The city of Aurora has created an urban renewal zone to the west and south of Fitzsimons to catalyze new, off-campus redevelopment.
