The Consilium Design Difference: Featuring RidgeGate

Jun 21, 2022

Consilium Design is grateful for our involvement at RidgeGate, a 3,515 acre master-planned community in Lone Tree, Colorado.   The opportunity to work with Keith Simon, Darryl Jones, and the entire Coventry team allows us to experience continuing professional growth, contribute to sustainable and resilient “city building”, and demonstrate the Consilium Design difference in our work every day.

Our involvement at RidgeGate encompasses multiple roles.  Craig Karn, our founder, is a member of the RidgeGate Design Review Committee, offering guidance and insight for applicants, helping them to elevate their designs, have a successful entitlement effort with the City of Lone Tree, and set a higher standard for community development.

Consilium Design is the Landscape Architect of record for the Rampart Range Metropolitan District at RidgeGate.  Our role includes the design and development of District managed streetscapes, parks, and other public spaces.  Working with the District management team, we develop new design and maintenance protocols, coordinate streetscape improvements with adjacent developments, and move projects through the city entitlement process.

Consilium Design works directly with the developers of individual development sites within RidgeGate.  We are the landscape architect for the 228-unit Novus apartment community at the Sky Ridge Station, The 540-unit RidgeGate Station apartment community at the RidgeGate Station, and the Pinnacle medical office building near the Sky Ridge Medical Center. Our familiarity with the design review committee and city entitlement processes allows us to effectively guide our clients through those processes.  Julie Hendricksen, Senior Landscape Architect, leads our work for this and the Rampart Range Metropolitan District.

We collaborated with the Coventry Development team, City staff, and other stakeholders to create a landscape master plan for RidgeGate Parkway and Havana Street. This master plan is now guiding us through phased design and construction encompassing over three miles of multi-modal corridor development. Over 2,800 street trees are included in the design.
