Classic Homes and Jayden Homes have come together to put Forest Lakes on the 2016 Parade of Homes Map! The Colorado Springs Parade of Homes is now in its 62nd year of offering the general public a first-hand look at the current trends and greatest innovations in new home design. This annual event, presented by the Housing and Building Association of Colorado Springs, showcases the latest design trends ranging from affordable living to luxury dream homes complete with every amenity imaginable. Each home in the Parade is professionally judged for a multitude of features including landscaping, floor plan, architectural exterior, interior decorating etc. and every year the HBA includes the People’s Choice Award. The People’s Choice Award is voted on by those who attend the Parade and is the most coveted award by the builders. The People’s Choice awards, as well as other awards, are broken out into six categories divided by price points.
Classic Homes is featuring its Hillspire ranch plan located at 2919 Waterfront Dr. in Bristlecone at Forest Lakes. The Hillspire in Forest Lakes is one of Classic Homes' most popular ranch plans. It offers up to 3,272 total sq. ft. of comfortable living space. As you enter the Hillspire, the first thing you'll notice is the open feel of the floorplan. The family kitchen, dining, and great room come together in true harmony...functioning the way families want to live. The wall of windows along the family room and dining room make for a spry gathering area with outstanding views of Waterfront Park and Bristlecone Lake. Homeowners have the opportunity to select the optional patio or deck off the dining room, making this ranch plan ideal for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The main-level master suite is an owner's retreat with large walk-in closet, spacious master bathroom, and plenty of room to relax. The main level includes the choice of a second bedroom and full bath or the optional study. The family friendly basement is as open and easy to live in as the main level. The spacious recreation room combined with the opportunity for up to three additional bedrooms provides a substantial amount of space to comfortably accommodate and entertain family and guests. Two-car and three-car garage options are available with the Hillspire plan.

CONSTRUCTION IS UNDERWAY ON WATERFRONT PARK AND THE AMPHITHEATER AT FOREST LAKES!
We are excited to share that Forest Lakes will soon begin welcoming the community's first residents. And, the timing couldn't be better! Our development team has been hard at work laying the ground work for Waterfront Park and building the community amphitheater. Residents of Forest Lakes will enjoy stunning views of the national forest, Bristlecone Lake and the city lights from the new park and amphitheater.
Throughout history, amphitheaters have been gathering places for sporting events, performances and many other forms of entertainment. Ancient Roman amphitheaters were oval or circular in plan and included seating in tiers surrounding performance areas, much like an open-air stadium. Modern day amphitheaters are most commonly used for outdoor concerts, wedding settings, and casual gatherings. Waterfront Park is approximately 4-5 acres, with a play area of roughly 58' x 35'. The Amphitheater at Forest Lakes is a 36' octangular amenity situated along Forest Lakes Drive. When complete, it will seat nearly 120 people.
We look forward to sharing the progress of the spectacular amenities coming to Forest Lakes. If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please follow the progress on our Facebook Page or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
