Prospect Crossing is the first building of a third neighborhood at Wind Crest (and it’s already over halfway sold out). This rendering shows its relation to future outdoor amenities planned if demand causes the community to continue building.

If there were a place where people got healthier with age, it would be Wind Crest, the Erickson Living community in Highlands Ranch, Colo. Community members avail themselves of yoga, tai chi, walking trails, healthy menu options, and wellness programs, all offered conveniently on campus.

Word’s getting out about this worry-free community. People like Fran and Bill Myers, Jack Lane and Candy Kane, and Ken and Karen Pinkan are telling their former neighbors how much they love their new home and how active they’re able to be.

Growing demand

“For ten years, I was a preacher at our community [Heritage Eagle Bend] telling everybody to move here,” says Fran. She and Bill lived at the Aurora 55-plus community for 16 years and moved to Wind Crest a little more than a year ago. “We wanted to move while we could really enjoy all the amenities and lifestyle here.”

They’re active in Wind Crest’s chorale, Catholic community, and fitness center. They downhill ski and bike and walk the High Line Canal Trail. They’re much like so many of their neighbors.

“We’re seeing more people utilize our wellness programs, fitness centers, and healthy menu options, especially as we open new buildings and welcome more and more new residents,” says Sales Director Jason Atwell.

Wind Crest opened the final residence building in The High Line Overlook neighborhood in May, but due to the continually increased demand for the Wind Crest lifestyle, they recently announced construction has begun on the first residence building in a brand new neighborhood.

“We only build on demand, and right now the demand continues to be strong for our maintenance-free, amenity-rich, active lifestyle,” Atwell says.

Amenity-rich lifestyle

The new four-story building, Prospect Crossing, will add 111 new apartment homes to Wind Crest in a variety of the most popular floor plans.

Named after Prospect Lake, a lake and park located in Colorado Springs, Prospect Crossing evokes the active Wind Crest lifestyle indicative of Colorado. “We named this building after Prospect Lake because it represents the beauty of Colorado, where people can take in the vistas of the majestic Rocky Mountains while biking, hiking, paddle-boarding, fishing, and camping,” Atwell says.

All homes in Prospect Crossing will have easy access to all services and amenities in The High Line Overlook and Town Center neighborhoods, which include four fitness centers, an aquatics center, a medical center, classrooms, music rooms, art rooms, the 250-seat Arts and Enrichment Center, neighborhood libraries, and six restaurants.

A climate-controlled walkway will connect Prospect Crossing to Longs Ridge, which houses two new restaurants, Mile High Café and Burton’s Restaurant.

“Homes in Prospect Crossing are just a short walk from everything,” Atwell says. And that includes their parking spots. New to Wind Crest, under-building parking will be available in Prospect Crossing.

“People will be able to drive under the building and take an elevator up to their floor. It’s been very well received so far, so we are very excited to be able to offer it in this new building,” Atwell says.

Wind Crest is now taking reservations for homes in Prospect Crossing, which is already over halfway sold out. To learn more about how you can make the amenity-rich, maintenance-free Wind Crest lifestyle your own, call 1-800-710-2374.
