Designed to embrace and support the rural lifestyle of its surroundings, Independence is a single-family residential community that will include 920 homes, a school site, open space and parks in beautiful Elbert County, Colorado. The strategically and carefully planned Independence community employs innovative conservation methods to preserve open space, water, energy, and other natural resources to directly benefit all residents of Elbert County.
A Home for Everyone
Through smart, deliberate planning, we’re able to help families attain the dream of home ownership while preserving permanent, open space and honoring the land and quality of life that makes Elbert County home. With various lot sizes and housing product types, Independence offers ideal housing options for families, teachers, government employees and first responders. Home prices will start in the low $300,000s.
A Higher Standard of Sustainability
Conservation is at the core of every decision that went into the designing process of the Independence development. Our community is configured to consume less water, energy, and other natural resources per family, while preserving large areas of undisturbed open space. Curved streets preserve community views and reduce vehicle speeds, while miles of trails and neighborhood pocket parks promote health, wellness and community connectivity. Independence will treat and recycle water at the highest level approved by the State of Colorado.
Elbert County Preservation
We offer the highest percentage of dedicated open space than any comparable master plan community in Colorado. Over 420 acres will be preserved in a contiguous and natural state to encourage wildlife and migration throughout the community, while expansive setbacks from neighboring residences and local roads will reduce the community’s impact on current residents. Independence will also include a community center and preserved homestead to honor and share Elbert County’s proud history with future generations.
