At the center of a regional renaissance
Northern Colorado is evolving. Discovering new avenues of prosperity and new facets of its own character and culture. And Centerra is at the heart of this revival.
We’re McWhinney. And having cultivated this place over the past two decades, we’re now infusing it with a lot of fresh ideas. We’re trying new things. Creating new experiences. Whipping up a new recipe for community, inspired by the values, character and robust spirit of Northern Colorado. Making Centerra a more walkable, diverse and delightful mix of commerce, culture, nature and home.
Nature is good for us. The changing of the seasons. The purple prairie clover that looks so delicate but is actually so tough. The deep-rooted cottonwoods and industrious bees — they all hold important lessons for life. Which is why nature is part of the DNA of Centerra. In fact, one of the first steps we took in the creation of Centerra was to establish the High Plains Environmental Center. It’s an organization devoted to the idea that a healthy community is one that lives in harmony with nature. And thanks to the efforts of the HPEC, Centerra has been certified by the National Wildlife Federation as Colorado’s only Community Wildlife Habitat. So get out there. And get inspired.
Culture and community life
Loveland, the hometown of Centerra, has its roots in agriculture. It’s a place that honors the land. Yet it also has a longstanding love affair with the arts. So it was only natural for Centerra to embody this intersection of Colorado landscape and local art. Mountains and music. Nature and sculpture. All wrapped up in a community spirit that invites everyone to come together and enjoy the beauty of it all.
Resilient by design
A resilient community doesn’t happen by chance. It takes a bold vision and a dedication to thoughtfully designing (or if needed, redesigning) each element of the community. At Centerra, we’ve heightened our commitment to design. To making sure that everything about this place is as intelligent, efficient, sustainable, beautiful and healthful as it can be.
Brought to you by McWhinney
We create innovative places. Friendly, welcoming places that bring people together with a vibrant sensibility and an artful touch. When we began work on Centerra over two decades ago, we knew the location and the land were special because this land has been in the McWhinney family for generations. And over the years, as Centerra has grown, so have we. Helping to revitalize Denver’s iconic Union Station, creating the Dairy Block in LoDo and launching Baseline in Broomfield, we’ve learned a lot. We’ve strengthened the pillars that guide our company: design and architecture; sustainability; arts and culture; community engagement; innovation. And with the new districts and villages emerging in Centerra, you could say we’re bringing all those lessons home.
