The community of Briargate creates a dynamic part of northern Colorado Springs. As one of the younger developments of the city and just east of the beautiful Pikes Peak Mountain range, residents enjoy fantastic views. 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 new community that truly epitomizes the Colorado Springs lifestyle with spectacular views of the Black Forest and Pikes Peak and equally spectacular homes from Colorado’s finest homebuilders. There is also an extensive 4.5 mile inter-linking trail system, four wonderfully-themed neighborhood parks, and an amenity-packed Community Center that features a pool and splash area. Plus, Cordera is nearby The Promenade Shops at Briargate and within the highly-acclaimed Academy School District 20.
In addition to Cordera, the newest community in Briargate is North Fork at Briargate, which offers beautiful homes in school district 20 with starting prices in the upper $200s. Plus, there are a limited number of acre plus sized lots!
In additional 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 Family YMCA, 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.
The rolling hills of the Briargate community ease residents into parks and restaurants as well as mall shopping. Just across the I-25 freeway rests the United States Air Force Academy with its architecturally acclaimed Cadet Chapel and opportunities for attending dynamic sporting events in the Falcon Stadium at the foot of the Pikes Peak range.
