Amy Harmon’s resume of development projects, including upscale residential and mixed-use complexes, is designed to advance the city of Denver. Her properties support the goal of improving downtown living, working and visiting, and reinforce Denver initiatives such as sustainable development and promoting bike- and pedestrian-friendly lifestyles.
Over the years, Harmon has managed and produced more than 500,000 square feet of development. She’s successfully delivered 200 million dollars worth of mixed-use condominium development projects while employing hundreds of contract laborers and consultants. In 2009, Harmon was featured as a young professional making an impact on their industries in the Denver Business Journal.
While here at Brooks, Harmon was a three-sport athlete, participating in field hockey, ice hockey and crew. She served as both a school prefect and chapel prefect, and was involved in many activities from the Lawrence Project to the Exchange Program. Harmon capped off her outstanding Brooks career by receiving the Allen Ashburn Prize.
Harmon moved on to the University of Texas in Austin, where she was accepted into the Plan II Honors Program, a notably selective interdisciplinary program offering exposure to both arts and business. She earned a bachelor’s degree in humanities with concentrations in art history, business and political science in 1995.
After working in New York for a few years, Harmon moved home to Denver and embarked on a real estate development partnership with her stepfather, Steve Owen. Then three years ago, she founded her own development firm, Urban Market Partners, with the goal of combining her interests in real estate, art and community building.
Harmon’s contributions to Denver go beyond real estate and development. She is actively involved with a number of community organizations including the Ballpark Neighborhood Association, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Community Coordinating District and the City Parks Alliance based in Washington, D.C. She is the former President and ongoing Board Member of the Metro Denver Executive Club 60th Anniversary and is currently serving as Interim Director of the Denver Biennial of the Americas.
