Southfork Ranch

18 Jun

Southfork Ranch was annexed into the City of Durango on May 10, 2012 through the recording of the Crader Annexation Plat, the Crader Subdivision Plat and the Annexation Agreement. All of these documents are available through our Associated Documents tab.
The plat created 5 lots within what we are naming Southfork Ranch. These lots are zoned and have established land use designations as outlined in the Annexation Agreement. Currently there are two lots for sale with one lot undergoing a process for further subdivision.

Lot 1 consists of 54 acres with 10 acres dedicated to a Church, 5 acres of Multi Family and 40 acres for retail and associated commercial uses. The owners will sell the entire Commercial and Multi Family portions as a whole or will be offering smaller parcels subject to City approvals.
This lot is quite desirable for building due to its relatively flat terrain. There are two excellent sites for large scale retail stores. The lot fronts Wilson Gulch Road and will be bisected by a future street heading North, providing for two high visibility corners. See Crader Subdivision Map.

Lot 5 is 16.89 acres and may or may not be further subdivided. Land use is retail and associated uses as outlined in the Annexation Agreement. It also fronts Wilson Gulch Rd. and has excellent visibility from the Highway.

Lot 3 has been Sold to GRVP the real estate development entity for The Southern Ute Indian Tribe. They received Conceptual Development approval from the City of Durango for a large scale retail development. They are currently offering lot sales, build to suit sales and leasing.

The future Wilson Gulch Rd. has been designed with four lanes, a median and turn lanes through the entire property. The City of Durango has committed in the Annexation Agreement to fund and construct the Road.
All utilities are currently in place and in use and capacities exist for the full development of Southfork Ranch.
All Lots in Southfork Ranch are Zoned PD and will be required to submit site specific development plans and process through the City of Durango’s land use process. The process involves Conceptual Plan (general layout of buildings, parking and circulation).Preliminary Plan (full engineering and building design) and Final Plan (detail review of engineering).

Crader Properties LLC, owners of Southfork Ranch are currently designing for Lot 1 and Lot 5 a Conceptual Development Plan to process through the City of Durango. The plans will be similar in scope as the Conceptual Development Plan approved for Lot 3. See Associated Documents tab.

During this process we will be offering the land for sale in whole or smaller parcels subject to City approvals. Restrictions on Retail users exist. For further information on pricing, terms or any other questions please contact Tom Caver Jr. or phone 970-749-2343.
