Introducing a new way
to live in Centerra
Loveland  |  Colorado

This is big.

Kinston is a new village coming to Centerra. And from day one, it will be different from everything else in Northern Colorado.

So let’s rethink the whole idea of town. Let’s hop on a bike and leave the car in the garage. Let’s invite people from all walks and every stage of life. Let’s get back to the things that matter. To beauty. And craft. And real community.


We’re excited that three of Northern Colorado’s favorite builders — Dream Finders Homes, Lennar and Richmond American Homes — are coming to Kinston. Dream Finders is bringing an inspired collection of single-family homes. Lennar will offer two distinctive collections of single-family homes. And Richmond will be building both single-family and paired home collections. New homes coming later this year.


Much is here. More is coming.

Centerra is many things. Located in Loveland where I-25 intersects Highway 34, it’s a true regional hub. Northern Colorado’s go-to spot for shopping, dining, art and entertainment. It’s the workplace of more than 8,000 employees and home to over 150 companies. It is also Colorado’s first and only Certified Community Wildlife Habitat*, a place of lakes, miles of trails and nature. And living in Kinston, on the rising ground just east of I-25, you’ll be right at the heart of it all.

*Certified by the National Wildlife Federation

Why here?
Why now?

Welcome to Northern Colorado, an energetic mix of college, commerce and culture. The population is growing and the economy is grooving. People and companies are moving here from all over, bringing with them the desire for new kinds of homes and a fresh take on town living.

… for people looking for a new home in a new kind of place. A place that remembers when homes were full of character, life was convenient and community meant people spending time together.
Kinship + Town = Kinston
People staying connected at restaurants, shops and trails - all coming to Kinston Centerra in Northern Colorado.

A more connected day.

Living in Kinston, you’ll be able to bike to The Promenade Shops for dinner. Walk to a concert in Chapungu Sculpture Park. Hop on a trail that takes you around Houts Reservoir and Equalizer Lake. This isn’t a promise for the future; it’s a reality that will be in place day one. And with I-25 and the coming Centerra-Loveland Station just minutes from home, you’ll find that destinations like Denver Union Station and Coors Field are much more convenient.

We are McWhinney

We introduced Centerra about two decades ago with the vision of creating a true centerpiece for Northern Colorado. A place that would bring people together for work and play and lunch and school and date nights and nature walks and, well, a little of everything. Since then our community vision has both broadened and sharpened. We understand that human needs and lifestyle choices are evolving rapidly. And we’re bringing to Centerra insights we’ve gained from our work on places like Union Station and the Dairy Block in Denver, and from transforming places along the front range. Insights and experience about blending town and community. Nature and human connections. And the very notion of a balanced life well lived.
