The City of Lone Tree, in partnership with RidgeGate, has set a high standard for creating quality neighborhoods and parks, municipal services, cultural amenities and mixed use districts. The Lone Tree City Center, located on the east side of I-25 and just south of Lincoln Avenue, will cultivate a dynamic and inclusive mixed use urban center south of Denver that anticipates the needs of the region.
This 400-acre urban core on RidgeGate’s east side will continue to grow and evolve over the next few decades, situated around two light rail stations and mixed-use transit-oriented development.
