Shadow Ridge II
Location: Aurora, Colorado
Completed: Not Realized
Area: 68,080 sf
A multi-family housing project, Shadow Ridge II will extend the adjacent Shadow Ridge property north along Murphy Creek, while allowing the new tenants to benefit from the site’s existing amenities including pool and clubhouse. The new development will consist of two buildings of 25-units each, configured in 1 and 2 bedroom apartments that will be offered at market rate.
External connections are emphasized by offering extra-wide balconies and oversized windows to capture the outdoors within the units, while unit access is through open breezeways.
The design takes advantage of the site’s excellent natural access to Murphy Creek and a local pedestrian/bike path, as well as an existing community green space and playground just beyond the property line. Exterior building materials and color choices reflect a subtle embrace of the site and surroundings as the stone and stucco façade share hues in light greys and browns.
