Proximity to Denver and Development

For a long time, it seemed that 30 miles east of Denver was a long way out east. With the explosive growth happening on the Front Range, now it doesn't seem that far at all anymore. Located 7 miles south of I-76 Exit 66A on Hwy 52, the Bijou's Antelope Creek Ranch shooting preserve and Antelope Ranch Event Center is ideally situated to capture future growth. Large developments are planned, including a huge 6,500-Acre inland port called Port Colorado and the Colorado Air & Space Port, the Aurora Campus for Renewable Energy, and the Rocky Mountain Rail Park, all of which are located just 30 miles south of this property. As well, several thousand housing units are planned in Bennett, a few miles east of those huge developments.

A new development in Wiggins, the Rodeo Dunes golf course project, is slated for 500 higher-end luxury homes. Other developments are planned for the area, which is one of the fastest-growing locations in Colorado. Such development will provide an even greater source of business for Antelope Creek and its offerings.

For sale as a combined offering at $6,576,000.00
