The mixed-use community along I-25 known as RidgeGate for the past 15 years, recently unveiled it's plan for expansion.  The expansion to this development is expected to support 50,000 jobs.  Additionally, the future development to the area east of I-25 is projected to add another 10,000 residential units.  The increased housing options will lead to over 40,000 new residents to RidgeGate, more than doubling the population of Lone Tree.

Last month, the Lone Tree City Council unanimously approved planning documents that will guide the development of more than 2,200 acres over the next several decades in the mixed-use, master planned RidgeGate community on the east side of I-25. Plans were approved for the 400-acre Lone Tree City Center and the 1,800-acre East Villages.

The City Center will not only serve as the downtown for RidgeGate but also will be the de facto downtown for Lone Tree and surrounding communities. RidgeGate is the southern gateway to the entire metro area, this will serve as the downtown for the entire region, including Lone Tree, Centennial and southern Douglas County.

Currently, about 7,000 people work on the west side of RidgeGate, many of them in the 650,000 sq.ft. Charles Schwab office campus and Sky Ridge Medical Center.  The tallest future buildings along the east side of RidgeGate likely will have 10 stories, although a couple may have 12 stories.

Development will include a grid of streets and two light-rail stations on the RTD Southeast line, already under construction. The East Villages will be a series of three distinct residential neighborhoods with integrated commercial uses and an extensive park and open space network.

Development of the RidgeGate community on the east side of I-25 follows the near-completion of the RidgeGate West Village. Today it includes the Charles Schwab Campus, with its 4,500 employees, and more than 2,200 residential units that are home to over 6,000 residents.

RidgeGate’s West Village also includes two retail centers with more than 500,000 sq.ft. of space, as well as amenities like the Lone Tree Recreation Center, a Douglas County Library branch, and the Lone Tree Arts Center. Only a handful of available development sites remain in the West Village.

RidgeGate has also committed to the inclusion of 350 units of attainable housing in RidgeGate East, and the donation of over 145 acres of land for new civic facilities and public schools.
