Owner's Representative

Preble Creek is a 500-acre project envisioned as a transit-oriented, traditional neighborhood development, including a town center. The location of the town center will provide accessibility to future regional and community transit systems at I-25 and Lowell Lane.

It is envisioned to be pedestrian-oriented with a mix of retail, service commercial, central village park and village residential opportunities. Surrounding the town center is a mix of commercial, office and employment uses, as well as several residential neighborhoods offering a variety of housing types and densities.

Preble Creek is a 500-acre greenfield site located in northeast Broomfield. The site was master planned and rezoned from Agriculture to Planned Unit Development (PUD) to allow for up to 3,000 multi- and single-family residential units and up to 1 million square feet of commercial space.

This gateway project for the City of Broomfiled required Trestle to manage the entitlement process to reflect the City’s desire for high density in a TOD configuration for a greenfield development.

Green Gables

Green Gables Development Corp

Lakewood, CO

Master Planning

Green Gables is a 152-acre golf course and country club property located in unincorporated Jefferson County in Lakewood, CO. The property was master planned and rezoned to allow for a mixed-use community comprised of commercial, residential and open space uses. This site presented an unusual opportunity redevelop a large, infill property into a cohesive, dynamic neighborhood with significant amenities. Future development on the site will be anchored and inspired by the natural and physical elements of the site including the lake and shorelines, trees, views, rolling topography and lake. A significant amount of open space and parks will be created on the site to serve the residents of the Green Gables neighborhood and connect the different neighborhoods and uses.

In addition to the rezoning and master planning, significant infrastructure planning and design was included in this phase of master planning, including the signalized intersection at Wadsworth, a regional roadway extension, water district inclusion, extension of utility mains, gas line relocation, CLOMR/LOMR, ACOE Section 404 Permit and CDOT access permits.

This project met the owner’s objectives through successfully rezoning and platting within an aggressive timeline, and by integrating the requirements of both Jefferson County and the City of Lakewood, as well as the future expectations of the residential and commercial developers.
