Denver Neighborhoods: Stapleton a neighborhood built for the future with new urbanism.

Stapleton, Denver's newest neighborhood is in the process of being developed in the Northeast part of central Denver. Denver neighborhoods: StapletonIt's borders are from Quebec on the West, Montview to the South, Eventually Peoria on the East as it attaches to Fitzsimmons Medical Center, and eventually 74th on the North, currently where Dick's Sporting Goods Stadium is located. It's 4,700 acres of in-fill redevelopment, which used to be the former Stapleton International Airport. It is approximately 1/3 built out  and a majority of the infrastructure is in place. It is also in the middle of several separate projects that represent some of the most exciting government capital spent in the country, including a library, a seventh school, a recreation center, a highway intersection which will connect North and South Stapleton as well as be the main access for the future park and ride commuter light rail station. This station represents a connection between Denver International Airport and Union Station downtown. It will also be a major Transit Oriented Development incorporating Stapleton's residential neighborhoods, pedestrian and bike system, it's commercial and businesses opportunities and tying it to Denver's mass transit system and many other Denver neighborhoods.Denver neighborhoods: Stapleton

The residents and homes themselves are very diverse and range tremendously. To spite being an all new community it has dozens of different architectural styles built by 15 individual builders. Price points range from $100,000 condominiums and townhomes in the affordable housing program to homes over $1,000,000 and truly everything in between. Homes and Homeowners in Stapleton pride themselves on their environmental progressiveness. Every home built, is Energy Star rated. There is approximately a 30% savings in home utility bills, and a 93% voluntary participation in Denver's recycle program. We have also planted over 26,000 new trees(so far) and all of the concrete infrastructure is built with recycled runways from the old airport. I have included a video of an HGTV contest that Stapleton won as a green community.

Stapleton is a great place to raise a family, retire or purchase your first home. Over a third of the developed land will be parks with outdoor living being an invaluable part of life in Stapleton. Dozens of pocket parks, 3 community pools, a sledding hill, a community garden and front porch homes set up for a very social feel where homeowners come out of their homes and back yards and live together as a community. 

The Stapleton Neighborhood was built with a vision of new urbanism. This sets up a community where homes and businesses interact. Walking distance to schools, pools, shops and parks. Bike paths connect residents within Stapleton and to the Denver grid. Being 10 minutes to downtown and 20 minutes to DIA. 1 minute to I-70, 3 minutes to I-270 and highway 36 and 5 minutes to I-225, gives Stapleton residents the ability to get anywhere in town with ease.

Stapleton will eventually have 12,000 homes and currently has over 10,000 residents making it one of the largest neighborhoods in Denver. Central Park is over 80 acres at the center and is one of the biggest parks in all of Denver. The Stapleton parks alone increase Denver's park system by 25%. There are over 25 tasty restaurants to eat at and many great neighborhood conveniences that keep Stapleton homeowners from putting major miles on their cars. In fact we know of several households that have been able to get rid of one of the family vehicles. There is literally too many great facts to list on this Denver neighborhood summary.

If you are interested in taking a look around or asking questions about how to make Stapleton your new neighborhood. Please call the StapletonHomeTeam. We live here and take great pride in calling it home.
