Massive, mixed-use community planned for Aurora Aerotropolis site could house 60,000 people
Aurora Highlands could have 23,000 homes, and a corporate and medical campus
A 2,900-acre community of homes, parks, offices and shopping districts could start taking shape this year on the vacant plains of east Aurora, pending approvals from local lawmakers.
The development team designing AuroraHighlands has formed under the name Aurora Highlands LLC. The team and Aurora officials have been working since early 2016 on plans for the development on a portion of the 21,000-acre Aerotropolis project planned south of Denver International Airport.
Amy Larson, spokeswoman for Aurora Highlands, said the developers’ vision for project is a full, multi-use, master planned community that will eventually cover 5,000-acres between E-470 on the west side, Powhaton Road on the east and 26th Avenue to the south and 56th Avenue to the north.
