Mile High Station
It is said that history repeats itself; but Mile High Station events are always one-of-a-kind.
MHS (that’s the hipster lingo for this cool space) took recycling to a new level when the doors opened in 2001. Once known as the Midwest Steel and Ironworks Building in the late 1800s, hundreds of craftsman built large-scale ship sections for use by the U.S. Navy during World War II. Today, the space, tucked close to Sports Authority Field at Mile High, still boasts the brick walls, steel beams, and soaring ceilings that surrounded those early iron workers. Preserving the historical look and feel of the building while creating a space that works for weddings, corporate events, fundraisers and conventions took some doing.
“We were in love with the history, but love is not blind, at least in our case,” says Joe O’Dea, President and co-founder of CEI, Mile High Station’s parent company. “We met with several tech companies, caterers, meeting gurus and wedding planners to make this space really, truly work. The technology is spot-on, the kitchen is ideal, and our staff is the best in the business,” claims O’Dea.
