After a long conversation, Silverthorne Town Council authorized an introductory site plan to build 46 condominium units in five three-story buildings on Blue River Parkway. The water front condos, named Blue River Flats, were declared in during a Wednesday, June 22 town council meeting with the condition that a 25-foot pedestrian trail easement is incorporated along the river.

The plan would be developed on 2.32 acres of land on the west edge of the Blue River. Condos range from 900 square feet to just over 1,800.
