Centennial City Luxury Real Estate
Just 12 minutes away from Parker, the City of Centennial is located at the southern part of Denver metropolitan area and is the newest City in Colorado. It is part of Arapahoe County and has approximately 106,114 residents, ranking it as the 10th most populous municipality in the state. It is also one of the top 15 safest municipalities in the entire country. The majority of the working class in Centennial has office, administrative, sales, executive and construction-related occupations. The top employers in this city include Jones International University, US Foods, Comcast, South Metro Fire Rescue, Saunders Construction and United HealthCare to name a few. The close proximity to the Denver Tech Center makes this an excellent location for many professionals who work in one of its many large office buildings. The ‘Streets at Southglenn’ is a new outdoor shopping area located on the Western end of the City.
Centennial came about as the result of combined efforts from volunteers representing several unincorporated segments of Arapahoe County in an attempt to prevent further annexation by Greenwood Village. The vote for incorporation was passed in September 2000, and the official creation of the city came about a few months later, in February 2001. Six years later, the citizens would vote incorporate home rule for Centennial. It is one of the youngest cities in the country.

Centennial maintains a good portion of public and private enterprises that provide education, health, recreation, and safety for its citizens.
