We launched our 1,100 acre city center development, The Cairns, on November 24, 2014, and since that time we have rapidly seen the vision unfold of a live, work, play, shop experience with a unique “Mountain Meets Urban” flair.

The Cairns, located minutes from world-class mountain recreation, will boast 20 million square feet of office, retail, commercial and residential development with the amenities expected for our active urban lifestyle, such as a bustling arts and entertainment scene, strong trails network, outdoor gathering niches and ongoing events and social occasions.

We will continue to have many more exciting announcements to make as we revitalize our city center into a bustling, family-friendly centerpiece to our community.

A few of the latest projects we are proud to welcome into The Cairns include:
