|The City of Aurora has
its industrial centers in its northern Adams County side, along the I-70 corridor near the
new Denver International Airport. Here in north Aurora, also called "Old
Aurora," homes are among Adams County's least expensive, averaging from the low to
lies in Arapahoe County. This is where the bulk of the city's office and research and
development centers are found. It's also where the homes are higher priced, ranging from
$85,000 to $650,000 and averaging $195,000. A typical, moderately priced Aurora
development is Tollgate, where the homes are new, the neighborhood is clean, and the lawns
are well-manicured. The area is close to the Denver Tech Center business area on the south
and is well-connected north/south by I-225 to both I-70 and I-25.
The city is served by two school districts,
Aurora Public Schools, and Cherry Creek Schools recognized as the best in the region.
Getting around is easy from Aurora. I-70 offers direct access to downtown. E-470 and Pena
Boulevard offer direct access to Denver International Airport.
The city is also a very convenient community with shopping never more than a ten minute
drive. Aurora also has a strong economic base with hi-tech, research and development, and
light manufacturing job opportunities. The city is also the new site of the University of
Colorado Health Sciences Center located in the former Fitzsimmons Army Hospital.
