The True Life Companies Plans Large Residential Development in Thornton, CO
- Nov 13, 2014
The True Life Companies, a major supplier of lots and lands to America’s top home builders, recently announced the acquisition of 204 acres of land in the Denver suburb of Thornton. According to a news release, the Willow Bend master-planned community will comprise 497 single-family homes, an activated 8-acre park, a 10-acre natural park, soccer field, trail system and an elementary school site. The property located at the northwest corner of 144th Ave. and Holly St. also provides access to regional transportation corridors such as the I-24 and E470.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for The True Life Companies,” says Brock Chapman, TTLC’s Managing Director for the Rocky Mountain Region. “The community, named Willow Bend, is planned to offer a variety of lot sizes and home prices to meet rising demand in the region.”
This acquisition of the 204-acre property is TTLC’s second venture in the Denver metropolitan area. The company also developed Fairfield Village in Aurora, a residential community with home prices starting in the low $300,000s.
The True Life Cos. intends to complete the first homes in the Willow Bend community by early 2016, according to the Denver Business Journal.
“The location supports a diverse employment base which includes a broad range of industries, from energy exploitation companies, and technology and communications firms, to hospital and health care companies – all within a reasonable commute,” Chapman says.
According to the Denver Post, the Willow Bend development was first proposed nearly a decade ago, and current plans for the property were approved by city officials back in 2005. However, construction was never initialized as the previous land developer abandoned the project.
