A HEALTHY, VIBRANT AND SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY
Redtail Ridge is committed to investing in the City of Louisville’s vision for a livable, innovative and economically diverse community. With an intentional mix of integrated open space, multimodal connections, retail and housing – all within a planned community that reflects Louisville’s values and small town atmosphere – Redtail Ridge will restore jobs and strengthen Louisville’s economy for years to come.
INTEGRATED OPEN SPACE
Over 80 acres of Redtail Ridge are reserved for trails, open space and parks, giving residents space to explore, connect and relax. This integrated open space will provide public access to the land for the first time in over a decade. Redtail Ridge’s trail system will connect historic downtown Louisville to US 36 and Flatiron Station, supporting a robust local and regional trail network.

Redtail Ridge will bring needed road infrastructure to the site, balancing the needs of motorists, walkers and cyclists in the corridor, while promoting the unique character of Louisville. Plans include rebuilding Tape Drive as a complete street, as well as extending Campus Drive to 96th Street. This will help improve safety access for BVSD buses, emergency vehicles and all personal travel to the Monarch Campus, as well as provide additional access to Avista Adventist Hospital. Helping to alleviate congested traffic conditions during peak commuting hours, there are also plans to add alternative access to US 36 from 88th Street.
Redtail Ridge aims to make a positive impact on existing Louisville businesses and significantly increase public revenues, benefiting the city, county and local schools.
New office and mixed-use retail space will provide new employment opportunities and amenities that complement Louisville’s existing offerings. Medtronic, a Fortune 500 company and Boulder County’s largest employer, has plans to acquire land at the center of the site, retaining 500 jobs in Louisville.
An active adult living community will give residents the opportunity to enjoy the next chapter of their lives without leaving their hometown. Erickson Senior Living, a trusted provider with nearly 35 years of experience creating vibrant continuing care communities, has plans to maintain the site’s natural beauty and topography as an amenity.
