FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Redtail Ridge?
Redtail Ridge builds upon a 150-year history of entrepreneurship, preservation and community. Offering acres of dedicated trails, parks and open space, this thoughtfully planned community is designed to maintain Louisville’s natural landscape while connecting residents to vibrant new options for office space, mixed-use retail and much-needed senior housing. Located just north of US 36 and Northwest Parkway, Redtail Ridge embodies all the reasons Louisville is consistently named one of the best places to live in America.
Why did you choose the name “Redtail Ridge”?
The name ‘Redtail Ridge’ pays homage to Louisville’s historic mining tradition and scenic landscape. Founded in 1878, Louisville’s robust mineral deposits made it an important location for coal mining in Boulder Valley at the turn of the 20th Century. As mines were dug in the area, the process produced “red ash” or “tailings” – a combination of discarded rock, clay, slate and low-grade coal – that was used for the town’s roads, which resulted in red dust plumes or “tails” as cars drove by.
The name also refers to the Red-tailed Hawk commonly spotted in Louisville and along the Front Range. With acres of integrated open space planned, Redtail Ridge will support the natural habitat for birds and other species that call Colorado home.
