Greenwood Village

-A A +A

An affluent suburb on the south side of Cherry Hills, Greenwood Village (1950, 5,422 feet) was one of the first places in Colorado to promote cluster housing and commons, epitomized by developer Robert B. Bogg's subdivision at the northwest corner of South Clarkson and East Orchard Road. Now a community of some 8,000, it contains a model upscale development of the 1990s, the Preserve at Greenwood Village, where half-million-dollar homes have replaced a large prairie dog colony. To appease enraged animal rights activists, developer Walter Koelbel laid nature trails through the development and created a 45-acre “nature preserve”—minus the prairie dogs.
