Potential New Home Development
Update: North American Development Group is moving forward with the land purchase for new home development in the Ken-Caryl Ranch Plains. No additional details are known at this time, but Master Association staff will work with the developer on future announcements.
North American Development Group is interested in purchasing land for new home development in the Ken-Caryl Ranch Plains. The land is currently zoned for residential use and includes the following locations:
* East of C-470 and north of Ken Caryl Ave.
* Southwest corner of Ken Caryl Ave. and Chatfield Ave.
These properties are privately owned and are not owned by the Master Association. Initial draft plans for two of the parcels were presented to the Master Association Board on Jan. 29 and are available at the link below. These plans are in draft form and subject to change. Plans for the third parcel of land are still in the works, but that third parcel, which is zoned for residential multi-family, can be seen on the Parcel A site plan.Draft Development Site Plans 1972 Official Development Plan for Ken-Caryl Ranch
Who is interested in developing the land?
The land is currently owned by Denver Residential, and North American Development Group is under contract to purchase the land for new home development
Where is the land that may be developed?

Parcel A: North of Ken Caryl Ave. and east of C-470 (also called the North Bowl)
Parcel B: Southwest corner of Chatfield/Simms and Ken Caryl Ave. (north of the Sunset Ridge community)
Parcel C: North of RTD Park ‘n Ride
What is planned at the three locations?
Parcel A: Allowed up to 330 units, but the developer is proposing 293 units. They are planning to incorporate three different product types: single-family detached (50’ x 100’ lots), Ranch paired homes (45’ x 90’ lots), two-story alley-loaded single-family homes (37’ x 110’ lots).
There are two planned access roads, one on Alkire and a new road by the Park ‘n Ride.
Parcel B: Allowed up to 270 units, but the developer is proposing 250 units. They are planning three-story townhomes (16’ X 42’ & 22’ X 42’ building size) and paired homes (45’ x 90’ lots).
Entrances on Ken Caryl Ave. across from King Soopers and on Chatfield Ave.
Parcel C – Area is zoned multi-family and can be seen on the Parcel A map. Plans are not ready for review.
Will there be open space?
Yes. The area immediately behind the Saddlewood neighborhood is currently zoned open space, and the zoning will remain the same.
Will these residents pay dues into the Master Association?
Yes, the homes will be within the boundaries of the Master Association and will pay dues like the other homes on Ken-Caryl Ranch. The homes are not currently within the boundaries of the Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District. They are in the Plains Metropolitan District. There is a possibility of forming a sub-district that will be responsible for maintaining the public areas.
Are the plans final?
No. Plans are preliminary and are subject to change.
Will there be a public input process?
Yes, the developer will go through a process with Jefferson County and will work with the Master Association on community meetings.
When will the project break ground?
The developer hopes to break ground toward the end of 2021 or in 2022. Builders haven’t been selected.
How many new residents?
It is estimated there could potentially be around 2,000 additional residents.
What schools will the new homes feed into?
This hasn’t been determined. The developer will work with the school district on this as part of the County process.
How do I submit feedback?
If residents wish to submit feedback, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and she will compile feedback for the developer. While this is not a Master Association project, staff will help get answers out to the community.
