Here’s What St. Louis Can Learn From Denver’s Failed Airport Privatization Deal

“Two or three years with this is a little much,” she said, pointing to the white paneling guarding exposed concrete and iron beams. “But, I mean, what do you do?”

She’s one of many Denver residents frustrated that a construction project halted last month is blocking a third of the airport’s main terminal. That’s after Denver’s mayor pulled the plug on the nearly $2 billion construction and privatization deal with Great Hall Partners, a group led by Spanish company Ferrovial Airports.

The move by Denver officials is prompting questions in St. Louis, where Ferrovial Airports is also likely to bid on a potential lease for St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Former Mayor Francis Slay — who started the airport privatization process in his final days in office — is also a lobbyist for the company.
