DENVER, March 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pure Cycle Corporation (NASDAQ:PCYO) ("Pure Cycle" or the "Company") announced today that it has broken ground on its initial 506 lots at Sky Ranch. The Company has entered into agreements to sell all 506 lots within this initial phase of its Master Planned Community known as Sky Ranch to three national home builders. Sky Ranch will include single family detached homes, paired duplex homes, multifamily apartments, and over 150 acres of commercial, retail and industrial development along the fast growing Interstate 70 corridor. In addition to selling lots, the Company will expand its water and wastewater utilities services to Sky Ranch and other properties along the I-70 corridor. "Today's groundbreaking marks many years of hard work and dedication from our employees and consultants to plan, design, permit, and now begin construction on what we believe will be one of the finest affordable master planned communities in the Denver market," commented Mark Harding, President and CEO. "The Denver market continues to be among the top ranking employment and housing markets in the country and area statistics continue to emphasize a significant under supply of entry level affordable housing product, which we seek to target," continued Mr. Harding. "We expect over-lot grading will take approximately 3 months, followed by wet and dry utility construction, with model home lot deliveries to our three builders in the fall. Sky Ranch is a key asset in our portfolio, and we welcome the start of construction," commented Mr. Harding.
