Ridgegate East Villages
The Ridgegate East Residential and Mixed-use Villages consist of approximately 1,840 acres bounded by Lincoln Avenue to the north, residential neighborhoods to the east, natural land forms and open space areas to the south, and the Happy Canyon Creek drainageway to the west. This area provides for the expansion of the RidgeGate community and will contain employment, retail, living and civic environments. The community benefits from the adjacency to I-25 and the two Southeast Line light rail stations. In response, the portion of the Villages near the transportation facilities are characterized by higher density housing that supports a walkable community and connectivity between the City Center and the Villages and to the light rail stations. The open space network utilizes drainage corridors to serve as “green gateways” for an integrated trail system connecting people with nature.
