Nearly 60 acres of vacant farmland on South Timberline Road are slated to become a 205-home subdivision.
A hearing officer for the city of Fort Collins recently approved the development proposed by Fort Collins developer JD Padilla.
The site would be developed into 205 single-family lots with 151 single-family detached and 54 single-family attached homes, according to plans filed with the city.
The 57-acre triangular parcel owned by the Harry O. Rennat Trust and Ingrid M. Rennat Family Trust has small frontage along Timberline Road across from Bacon Elementary and Zephyr Road in southeast Fort Collins. It is just south of the Hansen property slated for development and just north of the Crowne at Timberline apartments.
Access to the property would be served by a public street connection from the Hansen property and an extension of Zephyr Road and Rosen Drive to the south and east, according to plans.
No homes can be occupied before the road extensions are complete, according to the approval.

The site is adjacent to two other residential projects working their way through the city's planning and development review process.
Wingspan Development Group, an offshoot of Denver developer Kephart, has proposed 240 apartments on 10 acres of the Hansen Farm northwest of the intersection of Timberline and Zephyr roads. It is adjacent to 55 acres the Landhuis Co. plans to develop into 184 single-family detached and attached homes on 55 acres of the Hansen Farm.
A future development phase includes a proposed neighborhood park, split between the Rennat and Hansen properties.
The Rennat property is among a handful of sites Padilla is developing throughout Fort Collins, including The Wyatt, 366 apartments on the southwest corner of Harmony and Strauss Cabin roads. He owns the property just east of The Wyatt at Harmony and I-25 and is planning more apartments. He is also planning Morning Star, a senior-living complex in Old Town Fort Collins at North College Avenue and Cherry Street.
