In the 1960s Briargate was still considered rural. In fact, only a few homes were being built on large lots here and there. Briargate in the 1960s was like what is currently happening in Falcon and Peyton. The early Briargate lots had a well for water supply and a septic system for wastewater because they were not yet part of the city. It was not until 1982 that Briargate was officially annexed into Colorado Springs, CO. Today it is hard to imagine that this area was outside the city limits. Building began slowly at the end of the 1970s and then gained momentum through the 1980s. A construction boom has continued ever since and has stretched Briargate further north and east. This also indicates that the likelihood of purchasing or living in a split-level home (bi-level, tri-level) is high.
Briargate at one point was the northern limit of Colorado Springs, but it is now located very centrally with the northern expansion of Colorado Springs into areas like Black Forest. Briargate is about 15-20 minutes from downtown Colorado Springs. This part of town stretches from Briargate Blvd in the south, to I-25 in the west (where Northwest Colorado Springs starts) and touches Old Ranch Road to the north. The eastern border seems to be open for interpretation. Most people agree that Briargate stretches across Highway 83 (extension of Powers) into Wolf Ranch and Cordera.
