Candelas is located in Northwest Arvada, north of Highway 72 and east of Indiana on approximately 1,500 acres of rolling, high country prairie. The communities motto is "Life Wide Open."
Currently there are eight homebuilders for the anticipated 1,450 single-family homes, 785 multi-family homes including condos, apartments, and townhomes. Several million square feet of retail and commercial space are planned.
Candelas is Arvada's largest master-planned community. There are six different residential villages, all named for their view, each enjoying its own unique view of the prairie landscape with glimpses of mountains, valleys, and downtown Denver skyline. Home prices start in the low $400,000's.
Candelas is just 8 minutes north of Golden, 15 minutes south of Boulder and 25 minutes northwest of Denver.
