Thoughtful Land Development Tailored to Colorado’s Climate

At Pure Cycle, our land development segment delivers ready-to-build, finished lots to home builders and commercial customers. Our current focus, Sky Ranch, is a master-planned community providing residential, commercial, retail, and light industrial lots along Denver's booming I-70 corridor. We are proud to develop Sky Ranch with advanced water-saving infrastructure that honors our semiarid climate.

Sky Ranch is zoned to accommodate up to 3,200 single- and multi-family homes, and over 2 million square feet of retail, commercial, and light industrial space – which is the equivalent of 1,800 residential lots.

Sky Ranch Development Phases

Sky Ranch development is proceeding far ahead of initial forecasts. All 1,400+ Phase 1 and Phase 2 lots are sold or under contract with national homebuilders, with another 106 lots that we are holding for our build-to-rent segment. All Phase 1 homes are expected to be completed and occupied by December 2021.
Future development phases will include entry roads, monuments, parks, open spaces and drainage infrastructure to serve the entire community. We also built a zero-discharge water reclamation facility that reuses 100% of wastewater collected from customers to re-sell for outdoor irrigation demands.
Since builders are required to purchase water and sewer taps for each lot at the time of permitting, each lot sale also represents a new Pure Cycle utility customer.
