The 1800-acre Diamond Tail development has been carved from the historic 20,000+ acre Diamond Tail Ranch, with a rich history dating back to the days of the Spanish land grants.
The Developer is committed to a philosophy of land stewardship and has worked closely with the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service and San Felipe Pueblo to preserve and protect the unique characteristics of the properties. The developer is supporting the creation of wildlife corridors that will traverse parts of the ranch. In addition, they have actively participated in public interest undertakings such as, the BLM acquisition of the historic Crest of Montezuma Open Space and has taken leadership positions to insure that Placitas retains its rural characteristics.
Diamond Tail is a leader in eco-sensitive development practices, including extensive areas of open space, avoiding ridge-top development, on-site water conservation, and xeriscape plantings with native species.
