“Highlands Ranch has long been considered a very desirable part of the city, so Shadow Canyon is meeting a huge pent-up demand for new, reasonably priced residences in the area,” said Lokal Homes’ sales consultant, Tyler Gatlin, describing the newly opened community.
Shadow Canyon offers brand new condominiums that range from 810 to 1,227 square feet, have one or two bedrooms, one to two bathrooms and options for a detached garage. Homeowners will appreciate the community’s gated access, a new clubhouse with pool and fitness center, nearby top-ranked schools and abundant shopping and dining. Shadow Canyon is just 10 minutes from Park Meadows and the Denver Tech Center and just 5 minutes from several golf courses and parks.
“These residences are amazing and somewhere you’ll be proud to call home,” added Gatlin, “but what’s unique to Shadow Canyon is that before now, to be anywhere in this price point, you either had to settle for something very small or something that needed a lot of work.”
Recently unveiled at Shadow Canyon’s opening is the KATE floorplan, a two-bedroom, two-bath design with a large living room. The kitchen features granite countertops and a center island. The owner’s suite has an oversized walk-in closet and master bath with dual sinks. The home features a laundry as well as a back patio. It is priced from $299,990 and the model home will be complete Late Spring.
A KATE is currently being built at 4777 Copeland Circle #101 and will be ready for move-in this July. It has two bedrooms, two baths, 1,227 square feet and its final price with upgrades is $329,027.
Coming in late 2018 is the KYLE floorplan, an innovative home featuring a large living room, which is open to the dining area and kitchen. Its spacious bathroom includes dual sinks and the laundry area is conveniently located near the generous master bedroom with a walk-in closet. Owners will appreciate a roomy back patio that includes an extra space for storage.
Shadow Canyon comes on the heels of the company’s growing selection of multi-family residences, ideal for first time buyers that are priced in the $200s and $300s. Because of multi-family housing’s shared walls—in addition to the upgraded insulation and windows Lokal uses—homeowners save in utilities costs. Multi-family homes have a smaller footprint, impose less strain on infrastructure and have a lesser environmental impact. Public transportation is plentiful in urban and infill settings, so homeowners can easily access surrounding amenities.
Although the homes represent an exceptional value, Gatlin noted that buyers should still look forward to the industry-exceeding level of finishes and craftsmanship found in all Lokal homes. Owners can anticipate features like open kitchen and dining rooms, high-end materials, generous windows for natural light and nine-foot ceilings.
Shadow Canyon’s sales and information center is open daily and is located at 4800 Copeland Circle. More information is available by calling (720) 656-4512 or online at www.lokalhomes.com.
“It’s no secret that there are a lack of move-in ready homes along the Front Range,” says Lokal Homes marketing manager, Nickki Pucher. “And though lots of families say they love the idea of a new home, the thought of starting from the ground up can seem like a long process. That’s why we’ve begun building a selection of homes throughout our communities, so that we’re ready to provide beautiful homes with quick move-in dates to meet our buyers’ varying timeframes.”
Pucher points to the Estates at Buffalo Run community in Commerce City where two homes will be available for move-in by month’s end. The Estates offer a line-up of all ranch designs that include three or more bedrooms, open great rooms with generous islands and a high level of standard finishes. Homes are base priced from the upper $300s to low $400s.

“I think what sets Lokal Homes apart is that our business model is the sum of our experiences. We are delivering a quality product, designed for the Colorado lifestyle. Each new home has a large variety of upgrades and an elevated set of standards and we are building homes that we would want to live in.”
That’s Lokal Homes marketing manager, Nickki Pucher, speaking about the vision of the growing Front Range builder who currently builds from Monument and Castle Rock in the south, through Aurora and Highlands Ranch centrally, to Westminster and Fort Collins in the north. Much of Lokal’s offerings are priced from the low to upper $300s.
“Our buyers deserve to know first and foremost that we’re going to deliver exceptional design, quality and style as a given,” she added. “We understand that part of a home’s enduring value is its location and proximity to amenities, its convenience to shopping and dining, its access to good schools and public transportation."
Pucher noted that part of Lokal’s strategy for affordability is adding a robust portfolio of attached home offerings like condos and townhomes. “We’ve found a way to make multi-family homes an intuitive, first choice for today’s buyers and we’re leading the industry in the design and construction because we see the clear value we can deliver,” she said.
Lokal’s head residential designer Jessica Meier-Jones concurs. “What’s made our attached homes so popular is that we’ve incorporated many features from single family homes that make them live and feel big like wide hallways, wide staircases, standard door sizes and tall ceilings.” Meier-Jones explained that Lokal’s attached homes deliver a value that makes home ownership possible for a wider range of buyers, many first-time buyers, that single family homes simply cannot. “Plus, we gain efficiencies in materials, land and the building process which allows us to deliver a superb at an alternative, attractive price point,” she said.
Pucher pointed to the just opened Hyland Village community in Westminster. The 53-home enclave is located near the Hyland Hills Golf Course and is just a mile to the new downtown Westminster. The two-to-three bedroom luxury townhomes are priced from the mid $300s, range from 1,703 to 2,009 square feet and include an attached two-car garage.
All Lokal homes are built with sustainable, low-maintenance features, including James Hardie cement siding and architectural stone, dual-pane vinyl windows and high-efficiency furnaces and are backed by a highly rated Three Peaks Warranty.
“Lokal’s team leaders understand that what makes a city great, is that it has good housing for its residents,” added Pucher. “We’re committed to delivering a home and a building experience we’d be proud to share with our family and friends. The company is named Lokal for good reason and we take our commitment to the community very seriously.”
