The City of Lone Tree (approximate population: 13,400) is a modern, politically stable, business-friendly, and family-oriented city. The community is ideally located just 15 miles south of Downtown Denver with easy automobile and light rail transit access to the region, including major sporting events, cultural activities, and two major national airports (Centennial and DIA).
Far from being bui...lt-out, Lone Tree is just embarking on its next phase of growth on a unique, 2,000 acre, mixed-use greenfield property served by two interstate interchanges and, soon, by two new light rail stations as part of the RTD Southeast Extension. At build-out, this area of Lone Tree could eventually triple the City’s residential population and add 20 million square feet of commercial space, which would make the City an even more significant part of Colorado's economic engine. Planning for and guiding the development of this project will be a major focus of the City's leadership team for the foreseeable future.
