Pinecrest Development Behind Safeway Evergreen

We would like to start out by saying that Orson Hill Realty has nothing to do with the Pinecrest Development or Roberts Construction. This blog post is nothing more than an informational article that will be updated as more info comes to us. Orson Hill Realty always writes articles about community happenings. If there is a blog post about things such as the Pinecrest Development behind Safeway in Evergreen, it does not mean we are affiliated at all!

The Pinecrest Development is a larger parcel of about 115 acres behind the Evergreen Safeway. The ne proposed project is not about the entire 115 acres. The new proposal is about 52 homes being built on a parcel making the population density of about 6 homes per acre. We have not been able to independently confirm the scope or size of the proposed project. 

This has of course sparked the debate in the community over growth vs. private property rights. The Evergreen community was able to convince the powers at be to shoot down the Evergreen Tennis Bubble Project a couple months ago. The community is speaking out against this proposal as well. There will most likely be strong opposition to this project as there was against the Tennis Bubble project. For Decades there has been an ongoing battle between development and those that want to stop developments like the Pinecrest Development behind Safeway and the Tennis Bubble Project on the Parkway.

Pinecrest Development Behind Safeway  

Located in north Evergreen, this contiguous vacant land parcel is approximately 115 acres (including a 13.24 acre commercial parcel) that is legally subdivided through Jefferson County into 21 building sites ranging in size of 1.73 acre to 11.41 acres. This gorgeous ready-to-be-developed land offers direct, astounding Mt. Evans views from almost every lot, amazing and abundant rock outcroppings, a variety of healthy mature trees and southern and western exposures. The property has two deeded access points. It is undeveloped so roads and utilities would need to be brought in by a developer. The land is sloping to gently sloping to flat. This is a fantastic opportunity for a builder/developer OR for a single party to purchase one of the last large acreage parcels within the heart of Evergreen that is breath-takingly beautiful! Included in Evergreen Water and Sanitation District. Fees partially paid.
