Stanley Aviation

Aurora, Colorado

In 1954, the Stanley Aviation company set up a large manufacturing facility in Aurora on the outskirts of the Stapleton Airport to produce specialized equipment for military aircraft. The business would go on to thrive for the next 50 years; however, by the early 2000’s, the company began to decline, and by 2009, the facility sat idled and abandoned.
In 2013, the city of Aurora identified the Stanley Aviation campus as a catalyst brownfield site due to its potential to revitalize the surrounding communities.
