Fighting sprawl through urban infill development

By Chris Arnold

Making an impact through urban infill development

This episode features Andrew Katz, Founder of Katz Development.

Since 2015, Andrew has participated in the development of approximately $350M of multifamily, office, retail and hospitality projects totaling roughly 1M square feet in Colorado and Ohio. Since moving to Denver, Andrew has focused on infill development in and around the urban core with local developer, Westfield Company. Notable projects include:

- The Mission Ballroom, a 4,000 capacity new-build music venue operated by AEG

- North Wynkoop, a 14-acre mixed-use master development comprised of new-build office, multifamily, and hospitality; anchored by the Mission Ballroom

- Sustainability Park: a 100-unit condo and retail project anchored by renowned Japanese restaurant Uchi

- The 150,000 square foot adaptive re-use Stanley Marketplace

Andrew grew up in Cincinnati, OH where he graduated from The Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in Real Estate. Shortly after, he moved to Denver, Colorado to pursue a career in real estate development.

He founded Katz Development alongside his father, Scott Katz, who has owned and managed Cincinnati-based development and brokerage firm Midland Retail for 30 years, and his younger brother, Adam Katz.
