The sale in question from 2019 involved six noncontiguous parcels of land within two broader areas – Westfield Trade Center and Dawson Ridge – that had a patchwork of ownership.
The areas were annexed into Castle Rock in 1984 and zoned in 1986. Some infrastructure, which still exists today, was installed before bankruptcies halted initial development in Dawson Ridge in about 1990.
Since 1992, Dawson Ridge – the larger, southern portion in which half of the 2019 purchased parcels lie – has been under a suspension agreement from the Town. That agreement assures the Town’s ability to obtain updated development plans for the area that conform to current Town policies. (The 1980s zoning, which is accounted for in the Town’s current population growth projections, allows for up to 7,900 dwelling units and 13 million square feet of commercial space in Dawson Ridge and up to 11.6 million square feet of commercial space in the Westfield Trade Center. Current Town rules related to water, as well as transportation constraints, would prohibit development at these levels.)
To move forward with any development in this area, numerous steps – involving coordination among many parties – and public hearings with the Planning Commission and Town Council would be required.

Potential developers of this parcel have spoken to the Town on occasion over the past several years, but no applications have been submitted at this time. If an application is submitted, it will be posted on our Development Activity Map. View the map at CRgov.com/DevelopmentActivity.
15 M LLC has submitted applications for annexation and zoning on the 15.8-acre parcel of land just south of Memmen Ridge Open Space. Their proposal, Memmen Trails, is for 120 single-family attached and paired homes. The proposal is still under review and has not been scheduled for public hearings. When public hearings are scheduled with Planning Commission and then with Town Council, notices will be posted to our webpage. View the Town’s current notices for public hearings, or subscribe for future ones, at CRgov.com/notices.
Yes, a retail center with gas station is approved and under construction at the southeast corner of East Plum Creek Parkway and South Lake Gulch Road. The retail center is a 7,200-foot, multi-tenant retail building. A convenience store will occupy approximately 5,100 square feet, while the remaining 2,100 square feet are reserved for a future tenant yet to be determined. Six fuel pumps are proposed to be in front of the building under a canopy. An automated drive-through car wash facility will also be located on the property.
The application to annex and zone the area known as Pine Canyon within the Town of Castle Rock was withdrawn effective April 17, 2020.
The Pine Canyon property is currently zoned in Douglas County as Agriculture One (A-1) and is not within Town municipal borders. The area spans both sides of Interstate 25, extending from the Union Pacific Railroad on the west to Founders Parkway on the east. It’s generally north of Scott Boulevard and south of Founders Parkway. (Or, generally north of Douglas County High School.)
Please contact Douglas County Community Development for information about the zoning and any future development of the property.
That area – just north of the new Castle Rock Parkway interchange and behind Home Depot – is owned by Alberta Development Partners. Some of it is located within the Town’s jurisdiction, and part of it is within Douglas County’s jurisdiction. Alberta submitted a Preliminary Project Application in 2017 that included a proposal to have residential and/or commercial development on this site.
At this time, the 2017 proposal is not progressing and Town Council will consider taking ownership of the site in 2021. If the Town takes ownership of these parcels, future plans would include demolition of the vacant structure on the site and leaving the area as open, undeveloped space. A service road connecting the Happy Canyon South subdivision with Silver Heights would also be installed at the request of Douglas County.
For updates about this property, and other Town matters, stay tuned to upcoming Town Council meetings - agendas can be found at CRgov.com/agendas.

That land is a dedicated for a school site. At this time, the Town does not have any requests to develop a school on this site. When we receive requests, and developments begin going through our process, we post information on our Development Activity Map at CRgov.com/DevelopmentActivity
