Silverthorne

Silverthorne is a small town along the I-70 corridor that is currently home to about 4,000 people and is projected to grow to 5,500 people by 2035 according to the latest projections. With population growth seen in the Silverthorne area as well as other towns in the area, there is an increased demand for housing, specifically affordable housing. The site is centrally located in Silverthorne and the provides strong connections to amenities such as bike paths, recreation, and the downtown core which is beginning to develop.

The site is located on the former Smith Ranch hayfield and is a 60 acre site at the bottom of the Blue River Valley. Situated on Highway 9, the site offers opportunities for retail or offices to thrive on the front of the property while hills on the back of the site offer interesting topography in which housing is appropriate. A gas easment runs along the site north to south and acts as a bisecting line between spaces along the site.

Natural site conditions include prevailing winds coming from the northwest, views of the Gore Range, and a small creek running along the north edge.

Manmade site considerations include a gas easement that divides the site in two, noise from Highway 9, asphalt (runoff, sediment, etc.) from Ruby Ranch Road, and views to the church.
