Gold Hill Mesa, rooted in Colorado Springs’ history, emerges as a traditional neighborhood development. Originally the Golden Cycle Mill, it processed gold ore from Cripple Creek, creating “tailings” with remnants of extraction chemicals. After an approved Voluntary Cleanup Plan, environmental experts capped the tailings under the proposed community with a soil layer and synthetic barrier. Featuring alley-loaded homes, walkable streets, and community parks, Gold Hill Mesa’s xeriscape landscape ensures a vibrant, innovative urban design. The heart of the community, a center with cafes and offices, lies within a short walk from 80% of homes.
