He's in charge of land development

Brookfield Residential has named Marc Savela as its new senior director of land development.

In his new capacity, Savela will oversee the initial stages and the follow-up of the Brookfield Residential communities in Colorado such as Solterra (Lakewood), Midtown (Denver), Brighton Crossing, Tallyn’s Reach (southeast Aurora) and now Barefoot Lakes (newest community in Firestone). He works with local governments, regulatory bodies, engineers and construction partners to ensure that Brookfield Residential communities meet all stakeholder standards.

The Barefoot Lakes community, just east of I-25, is expected to be an economic engine for the area with shopping, dining, entertainment and recreational opportunities for more than 5,000 new homes. Savela’s involvement began with Brookfield’s purchase of the land; and in his new role, he will oversee every aspect of the development.

Savela is also involved in Brookfield Residential’s recent launch of the Shoal Creek Valley community in the Kansas City area. He joined Brookfield in 2006 as a project manager, and he has more than 15 years of experience in real estate development. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Colorado’s College of Engineering; and he is a licensed civil engineer in Colorado.
