Southern Ute Tribe builds off-reservation community

The Southern Ute Tribe of Colorado is building the largest residential and commercial community in Durango.

The 681-acre Three Springs community is located off the reservation. The land has been annexed by the city of Durango for housing, retail and other mixed-use development.

The first phase of the project calls for 800 homes, with up to 2,300 in the future. The $82 million Mercy Regional Medical Center is already slated to open in June.

Tierra Group, the tribe's real-estate company, is in charge of the project. Tierra recently purchased apartment complexes in Albuquerque and Houston, and is developing five city blocks in Oceanside, California.
