Best of Local Folk: Just Folks

Howard Hughes Award

David Jenkins

Developer Jenkins has been a major player in our community for close to 25 years. Legendarily tough in business dealings, Jenkins guards his privacy zealously. Rather than emulate the noisy celebrity of fellow developer Steve Schuck, Jenkins stays out of the paper, lives out of town (Manitou) and stays below the radar. A few weeks ago, he broke ground on the tallest building in town (just north of the Pioneers Museum). He developed Nor'wood and, just over a year ago, hired Schuck's icon Fred Veitch. Fred's used to the limelight, and that means that Jenkins can stay comfortably in the shadows, making deals, making money and, for all we know, letting his fingernails grow. (JH)
