If I may suggest there are other "new urban communities" being built in the Denver Metro Area.

One of these which I think is in a great location is "The Streets of Southglenn". This is in Centennial where the old Southglenn Mall was relocated. The Link is:
Celebrate Southglenn! Home (broken link)

View the video and get past all the overblown hype and you can see that it will have some good amenities to serve the area. It does not appear that there will be single family homes, only lofts. I think Centennial is trying to build some sort of center in their newly created city.

However, what is good about this location is that the homes around this development are all good and the schools are nearby. You can live right near this development, have the admenities, but live in a nice single family home, closeby. It is located at University and Arapahoe. In addition, it has a bus transfer station and is close the business parks of the DTC and Arapahoe Rail Station. In addition, is is very close to the shopping in the Lone Tree area.

There is a new urban development planned for Highland Ranch under Shea Homes. It is called University Park.

Brighton has a big new development called Prairie Center Prairie Center

Keep in mind that many of the new commuter rail stations and existing stations areas will be prime developments for new urban development. For example, the development planned for the Gates Rubber area near the Broadway Station.

Let us not forget the first Transit Oriented Development in Englewood at the former Cinderalla City site. This is at next to the Englewood Station. Close to that is a new shopping development in the City of Sheridan, east of their Golf Course on Sante Fe, which is adjacent to the Oxford Station.

These are just some of the examples.

#1. not friendly to kids "Active Adult Communities." Grandkids more than welcome, but can't stay more than a day/week/month. There are several in the metro area - a new one in Parker - but Parker is fairly kid-centric.

#2. LoDo/Downtown Fine for birth to 3, but after the toddler years take over, a yard, a park and more kids to socialize with the better.
