After decades-long battle over mountain views, Arvada foothills neighborhood finally rising in Coal Creek Canyon
February 5, 2024
It’s been nearly 44 years since Terry Ten Eyck bought 35 acres at the mouth of Coal Creek Canyon, motivated by a dream of buying up more land and building a community of custom-made luxury homes.
After several lawsuits, a failed ballot measure to thwart the development and a cratered real estate scene during the Great Recession, the first two homes in Canyon Pines finally have begun to rise from the ground at the base of Coal Creek Peak. The construction is Arvada’s first major residential foray west of Colorado 93, where the foothills begin to rise above the northwest suburbs.
