Miller's Landing receives finance agreement approval from Castle Rock Town Council April 18. Redevelopment of the 65-acre mixed-use site will clean up a 100 year old landfill just southwest of Downtown Castle Rock. CORE and Norris Design are happy to be part of the team.
CORE continues with our National Engineering Week festivities.
The Strongest Shapes contest was on tap. Two teams ended up winners. Using only note cards and tape, 5 teams built bridges to span 12". Each winning bridge was able to support 5 Hot Wheels cars, 1 Costco sized oatmeal container, 2 reams of copy paper, a giant box of Goldfish, 1 Nalgene full water bottle, and 2 boxes of foil.
Congrats to Team 5: Rob, Blake, Leif, and Leslie-Ann and Team 3: David B., Kevin, Zane, and Leonard

Craig Jones, an owner of the trademark Angelo’s Tavern, and Gabriel Aragon, reputed DTC chef, have partnered to open a dual-sided restaurant venue in Littleton this year. The venue is split between a second Angelo’s Taverna and an urban ‘microwinery’ called Carboy Winery. Located at 6885 S. Santa Fe Drive, it’s part of the larger 24-acre development that also includes Breckenridge Brewery’s new Farm House restaurant.
The restaurant and winery will be housed in a new 10,000 square-foot facility that’s being built from the ground up. Jones and Aragon plan to use 2 acres of the 4.5-acre site for their joint venture to create a developable pad site just west of the project. The project also proposed to bring in a new access road off Santa Fe just south of Brewery Lane.
Carboy has been of particular interest to the local public, which has enthusiastically embraced the microbrewery culture. The urban winery will import grape juices from foreign and domestic vineyards in large 275lb. bladders, before then blending and fermenting juices to make their own wines.
The project has been a development challenge for the two restaurateurs; they rezoned the property from residential to commercial in seven months. CORE assisted Jones and Aragon with the Site Development Plan entitlement process with the City of Littleton, as well as with other local agencies such as Denver Water and CDOT, and was able to get City approval in under 4 months. CORE also provided engineering design and surveying for the project. These services are elements of CORE’s civil engineering and land surveying services that we regularly perform for land developer clients alike.
