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.

BackCountry: The summer home that wasn’t…

by Shea Homes Colorado on June 17, 2016

 

Cathy and Sam loved Colorado. They’d been vacationing here for years to escape the sticky Houston summers. So when they retired a few years ago, and with their son married and living in England, they turned to each other and said, “Now we can live where we want to live.”

Thinking they’d buy a condo in the Denver area for summer living, they scoured the city with a Realtor® for days—but found nothing they liked. Discouraged, on the last day of their trip they took off on their own, wandered into Highlands Ranch and somehow “stumbled across BackCountry, a Shea Homes® Community,” says Sam. “Two hours later, we’d written a check.” Suddenly, that summer condo turned into a year-round dream home.
