Colorado Springs Master Planned Community

Over twenty five years ago, the owners of this land stood here looking at the Rocky Mountains and had the vision of creating a community where quality of life comes first. They envisioned a safe, pleasant, family-oriented community that offers top quality housing, the most progressive education available, easy access to recreational opportunities, numerous retail, professional, medical and family entertainment centers and employment all within a short walk or drive.

The Briargate Vision

Briargate has become one of largest and fastest growing areas in Colorado Springs, encompassing more than 9,600 acres and establishing itself as one of the most popular residential areas in our community.


Since 1995, both Briargate and Pine Creek were brought to fruition through the Master Planned Community Developer, La Plata Communities. Pine Creek was the first community in Colorado Springs to require builders to design and build their new homes in accordance with strict design guidelines and distinct architectural styles, including Prairie, Craftsman, European Cottage and Spanish Eclectic. 

 Briargate welcomed another amenity rich residential community in 2006 with the opening of Cordera

 Cordera is a well established community that truly epitomizes the Colorado Springs lifestyle with spectacular views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range and equally spectacular homes from Colorado’s finest homebuilders. There is also an extensive 4.5 mile inter-linking trail system, three story book-themed neighborhood parks, and an amenity-packed Community Center that features the 5-acre Grand Lawn, a kid friendly heated outdoor pool with splash zone as well as a new heated outdoor lap pool. Cordera is set to release their last set of lots in the summer and fall of 2021. Cordera is nearby The Promenade Shops at Briargate and within the highly-acclaimed Academy School District 20, including Chinook Trail Elementary and Chinook Trail Middle School within the community. 

In 2015, La Plata introduced North Fork at Briargate, which offered beautiful homes in school district 20 with starting prices in the upper $200s. All homes have been sold in North Fork.  

In addition to the residential communities, La Plata also developed the Briargate Business Campus and Briargate Crossing Commercial areas.

Briargate is home to a myriad of activities that promote recreation, worship, shopping, dining and learning. Recreational activities in Briargate include the Briargate Y, the highly-rated Pine Creek Golf Course, The Promenade Shops at Briargate,  as well as many parks and walking trails. People live in Colorado because of the quality of life, and Briargate is Colorado living at its best.
