As a commissioner, Widoff will support DURA’s role in facilitating urban redevelopment throughout the City and County of Denver.

He brings with him deep expertise and experience in the area of real estate investment and development, and his familiarity with issues related to Denver will prove tremendously valuable to DURA, the City of Denver and the entire community,” said Tracy Huggins, executive director of DURA.
Widoff is a Managing Director and Executive Vice President at Black Creek and Dividend Capital Groups, both based in Denver, where he has overseen the negotiation, diligence, financing and closing of approximately $3 billion of real estate investments.
