The relocation will consolidate Baxa’s executive and administrative operations, which are now in three separate locations. Baxa expects to move into its new space in May 2010.
According to Dustin Whistler of Forte Commercial Real Estate, "This transaction represents one of the top real estate deals in the metro area this year. At the time of signature, this was the largest new lease signed in the submarket in 2009." Forte provided brokerage and transaction management services for this and previous Baxa Corporation real estate projects and assisted the company with site selection and assembly of the tenant’s external team of professionals.

The annual Women of Distinction program is widely regarded as the one of Denver’s premier philanthropic programs, bringing together and recognizing a group of purpose-driven leaders, women in business, government and philanthropic communities; who, like the girls, are dedicated to service and leadership. My good friend Rae Ann Dougherty was one of the honorees this year.

"Biology teacher Tammy Hearty enjoyed going 'back to school' this past summer.
Better yet, she’s happy she didn’t blow up anything during her stint in the laboratory at OSI Pharmaceuticals in Boulder.
Hearty, who teaches honors biology at Fairview High School in Boulder, was part of a Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) program that connects teachers with local businesses to help them learn about their subject matter from the inside."
John Collar, CEO and president of the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) trade group, flew to Washington, D.C., at the end of September to tell Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet that the industry sees the fees proposed in Sen. Max Baucus’ leading bill as a potential disaster.
