Lone Tree's RidgeGate Community
RidgeGate is a sustainable community that is evolving where the city meets the prairie, an eco-smart blend of urban and open space. Its location in Lone Tree places it in one of the most thriving regions in the Denver metropolitan area. Retail, dining, and office centers are all within walking distance of diverse homes in village settings. Urban amenities, open space bluffs, parks and mountain views all make RidgeGate a community designed for health, wellness and peace of mind.
RidgeGate is developing according to plan as a compact, mixed-use community where people live, work, shop and recreate in a pedestrian-friendly environment. One of the few communities that continued to grow during the recent recession, RidgeGate will eventually span 3,500 acres, just south of Lincoln Avenue, straddling both sides of I-25. The community will continue to develop carefully, with a long-term commitment to walkability, livability, access, amenities and overall quality of life. Convenient access to transportation is a high priority, with an existing RTD light rail station near Lincoln Avenue serving the community, and three more stations planned within the RidgeGate boundaries.
RidgeGate offers a diverse blend of homes, including apartments, townhomes, courtyard patio homes, and detached single-family homes. Over 1,000 homes have been built or are under construction. RidgeGate is home to the first all-solar neighborhood in Colorado.
The growing Lincoln Commons center features a Sprouts Farmers Market, several restaurants and a Super Target. RidgeGate Commons, the community’s newest retail district, will be home to the sporting goods leader Cabela’s, scheduled to open in August 2013. The Sky Ridge Medical Center is the anchor to a growing medical sector in Lone Tree. The hospital plans to break ground on a 90-bed expansion in just a few months. A new hotel opened in December 2012 and another will be under construction in 2013. Finally, as further testimony of the true mixed-use Live Work Play character of RidgeGate, Charles Schwab recently announced the development of new a corporate campus, bringing 2,500 jobs to the heart of the community.
The LEED-certified Lone Tree Arts Center opened in August 2011 and has become a model for the performing arts by collaborating with some of the premier Colorado performing arts companies to present their productions in Lone Tree as well as presenting national and regional tours. The Lone Tree Recreation Center has been serving the greater Lone Tree community since 2004. Over 1,000 acres in RidgeGate have been devoted to parks, trails, wildlife habitat and open space, with the community flanked by the dramatic vistas of Bluffs Regional Park.
RidgeGate’s focus is to provide a living, working and playing environment that contributes to the health and wellness of all residents.
