About City of Lone Tree
The City of Lone Tree is a nationally-recognized, innovative, business-friendly, family-oriented suburb of almost 14,000 residents, located at the foot of the Rockies. Our residents enjoy world class cultural and recreational amenities within Lone Tree and the region through vast mobility options. The community is ideally located just 15 miles south of Downtown Denver with easy automobile and light rail transit access to the region, including major sporting events, cultural activities, and two major national airports (Centennial and DIA).
The City is also a retail and employment hub for the south Denver metro area – home to over 1,700 businesses including Charles Schwab, Sky Ridge Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente and Park Meadows Retail Resort.
Far from being built-out, Lone Tree is just embarking on its next phase of growth on a unique, 2,000 acre, mixed-use greenfield property served by two interstate interchanges and, soon, by two new light rail stations as part of the RTD Southeast Extension. At build-out, this area of Lone Tree could eventually triple the City’s residential population and add 20 million square feet of commercial space, which would make the City an eve...n more significant part of Colorado's economic engine. Planning for and guiding the development of this project will be a major focus of the City's leadership team for the foreseeable future.
