Site is a location or place, such as a work site or website.

Grammar Girl calls the coffee house her work site.
Site the house on the lot.

(Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students - Mignon Fogarty)

What do you think of the second sentence "Site the house on the lot"? Is "the house on the lot" the particular site that is talked about? If so, would "Site: the house on the lot" also work?

    To site (v. trans) = to position or place. "We decided to site the nuclear power station on the left bank of the river." "The castle is sited on a hill overlooking the plain."

    "Site: the house on the lot" is OK but is trivial because almost anything could precede the colon in your example.
