Land Development Updates for Ken-Caryl Ranch

Please check this page for the latest information and updates on the land purchased by North American Development Group for future residential development.

Jan. 14, 2021

North American Development Group (NADG) purchased land for new home development in the Ken-Caryl Ranch Plains. The potential sale of this land was announced one year ago, and the sale of the land was completed at the end of 2020. This land is privately owned and was not owned by the Master Association. A total of approximately 700 units (single-family, townhomes, and multi-family) are proposed over the three parcels of land. The land is currently zoned for residential use and includes the following locations:

* East of C-470 and north of Ken Caryl Ave. (Parcel A and C)
* Southwest corner of Ken Caryl Ave. and Chatfield Ave. (Parcel B)

NADG updated the draft conceptual site plan for one of the land parcels, called Parcel A, that is located east of C-470 and north of Ken Caryl Ave. in an area known as the North Bowl. The original conceptual plan for this parcel proposed 293 units, but the new draft plan is for 248 units. NADG will send updated conceptual plans for the other two parcels at a later date.

The developer is working with the Master Association’s Architectural Committee on conceptual design of the home exteriors. If you have any questions, please contact Master Association Executive Director Victoria DeSair at victoriad@kcranch.org.
