  • Currently, represents the largest residential component of the City’s Land Use Plan
  • Median home values of $653K and average household incomes of $169K
  • Very limited development opportunities
Castle Pines Commercial Corridor
  • The “Commercial Corridor” is generally defined as the commercial areas along the east and west sides of I-25 between Castle Pines Parkway and Happy Canyon Road

Future Castle Pines
