New Master-Planned Community in Douglas County on Track to Begin Sales in 2019

LONE TREE, CO., Aug. 22, 2018 – Shea Homes® Colorado, the master developer of Highlands Ranch, BackCountry and Stepping Stone in Douglas County, has begun preparing the land and developing infrastructure at The Canyons, a 1,270-acre master-planned residential community located east of I-25 between the Hess Road and Happy Canyon Road interchanges in the City of Castle Pines. Shea Homes purchased the parcel in December 2015 and followed a consultative planning process with government and community stakeholders before breaking ground on the project.

The Canyons

At build-out, The Canyons is planned to feature 2,000 single and multi-family homes from a variety of builders, including Shea. Additionally, upon completion a planned amenity village, located near the main entry, will welcome residents with a coffee house, resort-style pool, amphitheater/event lawn and clubhouses. “This is an inherently beautiful site within a remarkable city and Shea Homes is honored to be the master planner and community developer for this next great community in Castle Pines,” said Chetter Latcham, president of Shea Homes Colorado.

The Canyons Groundbreaking“Because this community will roughly double the footprint of Castle Pines, we know that homeowners and businesses in the surrounding area are especially interested in the activity going on at The Canyons. Right now, we are busy connecting utilities and preparing the land for roads and other infrastructure needed for us to deliver lots to our homebuilder partners. We expect the very first residents to be living in the community by the end of 2019,” Latcham added.

OSHA VPP Safety Award
California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) recently recognized Shea Homes for outstanding achievement in the area of workplace health and safety.

These companies go beyond minimal Cal/OSHA standards and provide the best feasible protection at the worksite. VPPC companies, like Shea Homes, are considered workplace health and safety leaders in the construction industry. Umbria by Shea Homes in Mountain House, was one of the first communities to receive this high honor.

Shea Homes is proud to be a VPPC recipient. This was truly a collaborative team effort, including OSHA, Shea Homes and our trade partners.. “Safety is the Shea way,” says Ed Calderon, Shea Homes Northern California Safety Manager. Shea Homes fosters a culture of safety with their “Nobody Gets Hurt Today” Program. One of Shea’s top priorities is to ensure that everyone working on a Shea construction site safely returns home to their families at the end of each day.
