THE RIDGEWOOD COMPANY | ABOUT
In 1959, Mike A. Leprino founded the original Ridgewood name. Throughout the 1960s and well in to 90's, his vision created some of the most well-known and highly-respected master planned communities on Denver’s West-Side. The prestigious communities that Ridgewood developed include Applewood Knolls and Grove, 6th Avenue West Estates and Columbine Knolls, just to name a few.
Mike’s solution to our common need for excellence cemented his contribution to the development landscape. His community involvement from land preservation to President of the Homebuilder’s Association continued with his endless pursuit of philanthropy in the medical, educational and political arenas he cared so deeply about. His body of work truly set forth his vision for a better, stronger community.
The next phase of the Ridgewood Brand comes though The Ridgewood Company, a development-centric real estate enterprise run by Mike's Grandson, Matthew Leprino. The resurgence of a now third-generation business, our real estate, development and construction prowess dates back to Mike’s early days developing single-family land. Now with more than 60 years of experience, The Ridgewood Company’s legendary team encompasses experts with the common goal of preserving the generation-spanning Ridgewood name. The responsibility of carrying the Ridgewood name means that we assume a higher standard and a finer attention to detail as our focus is reborn for a new generation of real property solutions.
