Vermillion Creek Development Plan Receives Unanimous Approval
May 25, 2023
On Monday, April 17th, the Centennial Colorado City Council unanimously approved a Preliminary Development Plan Amendment and Phase One Site Plan for Vermillion Creek. The 94-acre property abutting Cherry Creek, West of Parker Road and South of Broncos Parkway, will have up to 675 residences and 50,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving commercial development. The community will provide for diverse housing choices and architectural styles with four different home types, including townhomes, clustered single-family homes on motor courts, compact single-family homes, and traditional single-family homes. A fifth home type may be included within a planned mixed-use neighborhood commercial parcel. The concurrently approved phase one Site Plan consists of 282 residences and three home types.
Open space and pedestrian connectivity to the Cherry Creek open space is a key component of the master plan, with an interconnected system of streets and open space corridors carefully integrated into the design. Several park spaces are included, from small pocket parks to larger park spaces with turf play, play areas for varying age groups, and shelters for group gatherings.
