Green Valley Ranch Master Planned Community | Denver, Colorado
Land Development - Civil Engineering, Land Surveying
Green Valley Ranch is one of Denver’s first sustained master planned communities, with 10,000 lots on 2,700 acres. Featuring affordable housing, its proximity to Denver International Airport and the City created a desirable destination for those seeking a close-in residential option with all the amenities, including schools, parks, churches, commercial, retail, and mixed-use facilities.
Several CORE team members have worked on this unique community for over two decades, solving challenges to keep this bustling venture growing and economically thriving. As the engineering backbone of Green Valley Ranch, CORE designed the widening of 48th Avenue east of Peña Boulevard in response to exponential growth in northeast Denver and the surrounding community. The scope for this integral roadway included widening from a two-lane road with soft shoulders into a four-lane arterial road with a landscaped median and multiple turn lanes and with acceleration and deceleration lanes. Major intersections with traffic signals were designed for the 48th Avenue intersections at Telluride and Yampa Streets, creating the needed flow and control for a burgeoning population.
CORE’s 25-year relationship with the client is rooted in our responsiveness and attention to detail.
