Diverge is building today’s small town lifestyle. Our developments combine the best of City and small town life, and to us that means creating infill neighborhoods that have walkable access to retail shops, restaurants and open space, excellent public schools, and a meaningful connection to nature.


Diverge Homes LLC was founded in Boulder County, Colorado, to improve our cities and towns with exceptional neighborhood infill development. We proudly diverge from those who develop sprawl. Our investments focus on challenging infill parcels in small town communities that require thoughtful and creative application of land use.


We will only develop property that meets people’s desire to live in a walkable small town community enriched by a meaningful and exceptional attachment to the natural world; that incorporates sustainable design and artistic application of landscape and architecture; that has safe and engaging public spaces; that is centered on walking access to numerous retail and commercial choices; and provides access to excellent public schools.


Only Diverge Homes combines small town renewal with a business’s core values and expertise to innovate and deliver.
