Flat Rock Village will be part of the Terrain community
By: Shanna Fortier
Another 155 single-family detached homes will be added to Flat Rock Village in the Terrain Community in the northeast corner of Castle Rock between Founders Parkway and Highway 86.
The homes will join the 189 lots that have already been plotted in Flat Rock Village, the second village to be developed in the Terrain Community. An approximate 450 homes are located in Castle Oaks Village, the first developed village in the community. Five villages total are planned for the community.
Castle Rock Town Council approved the project by Starwood Lane Ventures LLC Dec. 1 with a 7-0 vote. The project was previously approved by the planning commission.
“We’ve really enjoyed our relationship with the town and community,” said Craig Campbell, west region vice president for Starwood Land Ventures. “We have a lot of pride in our projects. We’re really trying to promote the Colorado lifestyle and be good stewards of the beautiful land that Terrain already has.”
The site development plan for the project includes approximately 60 acres, 21 of which would be developed, leaving 55 percent of the site for open space.
“What Mr. Campbell and his team have done with this community, the residents love,” said Councilmember Renee Valentine, relaying praise from her constituents.
Flat Rock Village includes floor plans by three builders, TriPointe Homes, DR Horton and Taylor Morrison. Homes range is size from 1,871 to 2,860 square feet, priced from mid-$300,000, and homes priced from the low $300,000 ranging in size from 2,059 to 2,311 square feet.
During the meeting, Castle Rock Mayor Paul Donahue addressed resident concerns about growth.
“We do have significant growth in this community,” he said. “The main reason we have this growth is to pay for the infrastructure of this community. If we didn’t have these developers coming in, the taxes here — the fees for water — would be astronomical. This growth is paying for growth and it is helping us keep our taxes low.”
