Looking West

The National Western Center (NWC) is a billion-dollar revitalization project, bringing together a diverse group of partners to transform the current site in Denver into a vibrant, year-round destination. Colorado State University (CSU) is a key partner and Terra at Spur is one of three buildings on the CSU Campus at National Western Center.

Terra at Spur will provide the facilities needed to offer experiential learning opportunities and impactful research centered around food systems, water, energy, the environment, and health. It will further the mission of global impact at the NWC by providing K-12 education and interactive learning opportunities for families; research, innovation, and demonstration opportunities, and an Urban Extension and Outreach Center. In addition, Terra at Spur will provide space for a variety of activities, including arts performances and business incubation, as well as flexible conference and exhibit space.
