“Where a great city meets the great plains.”
In 1995, redevelopment began on 7.5 square miles of the old Denver airport to create the beautiful, sustainable community that Stapleton is today. The developer’s goal was to pay homage to Denver’s classic neighborhoods (parks, front porches, architectural diversity, tree-lined streets) while incorporating the newest thinking in water-wise landscaping, energy-efficient building standards, affordable housing and a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use environment with everything you need a short walk or bike ride away.
Located 20 minutes from both downtown Denver and DIA, Stapleton is home to 29,000 residents living in 12 unique neighborhoods. Architecture ranges from updated traditional favorites to bold, ultra-modern designs. Home buyers will find homes, condos and townhomes available in a wide variety of price ranges – along with more than a massive open space structure, 50 parks, 6 pools, 18 schools plus 100 shops and restaurants. And a new light rail station connecting Denver’s largest neighborhood to DIA and Union Station.
Stapleton has stayed on top of new development with future growth and the environment in mind. All builders are mandated to participate in the Energy Star program which observes strict EPA energy efficiency guidelines. A telecommunications master plan mandates high-quality phone, video, and data wiring in all homes and a community intranet system. A light rail has been completed at the Central Park location that connects Stapleton to many city centers including downtown Denver and the Denver International Airport. Stapleton remains one of the largest and most highly regarded in-fill projects in the country. Denver’s approach to redeveloping Stapleton has become a model for other communities and the project continues to receive numerous awards and positive recognition.
