Twin Tunnels Development Land – Idaho Springs, Colorado
67.39 Acres of Forested Mountain Land on the east side of Idaho Springs along the Clear Creek corridor currently zoned Rural Multiple Family Residential (RM) and annexed within the City of Idaho Springs.
Lying adjacent to the Clear Creek Greenway recreational corridor, adjacent to Arapaho National Forest and other Clear Creek County lands; the property has been envisioned as a potential site for a multi-family development project to enrich the strong housing needs supporting the local communities and greater metro area. Other contemplated uses have been for one or several larger parcel mountain residential home sites with expansive views of the surrounding mountains and peaks.
With it’s annexation within the Idaho Springs city limits, the opportunity to access the public water and sewer infrastructure just below the property provides a huge benefit to future development potential and Fiber Optic infrastructure has recently been brought through and area and fronts the property. The property’s location along the popular I70 Mountain Corridor makes this an easily accessible mountain escape, or commutable full-time residence location.
Elevated portions within the property provide expansive views of the surrounding mountains and the Continental Divide.
The property is host to a hand full of 1st growth trees from when the property was clear cut in the late 1800’s to provide lumber to build nearby Denver and shore up the mines in Clear Creek County.
Directly across the frontage road from the property lies the “Game Check Station” Trailhead as part of the Clear Creek Greenway. This area provides a link to the greater trail systems as well as potential future trail systems that remain on the master plan’s wish list on the regional public lands.
