“Knowing that the people we serve, the residents of the City and County of Denver, are positively affected by the decisions that we make is by far the most important aspect of my service as a commissioner. Whether the work is widening sidewalks, improving public lighting, cleaning up a brownfield site for redevelopment, or providing housing support during difficult and/or transitional times, DURA does a phenomenal job of identifying the real estate issues that our citizens face and tackles them head on. Despite the many challenges that are a byproduct of a rapidly growing community, DURA continues to improve the safety, livability, and overall enjoyment of the interactions with our surroundings in this great City. It’s pretty amazing to play a small part in the massive impact this wonderful organization has.”
Anthony Albanese is passionate about his family, community, and career. Since moving to Denver more than 10 years ago to pursue a career in commercial real estate at CBRE, Inc., Anthony has worked hard to engrain himself into the community.

Additionally, in 2013 Albanese co-founded the CBRE Energy Facilities Group (EFG), a North American practice group that he continues to lead today.

Personally, Albanese enjoys spending time with his wife, Christina, and two young daughters Charlie and Cora. He also likes to get out on his road bike, run, swim, and golf when he can fit it in. Albanese graduated with a BSS from Ohio University, in June of 2006.
