The award winning Stapleton neighborhood is located on the site of the former Stapleton International Airport. The planned community enjoys its own shopping district, has several community pools, recreation centers, parks, bike paths as well as highly-rated elementary schools. The development won the “Best Sustainable Neighborhood” award from Pacific Coast Builders, as well as an award from the King of Sweden for sustainable cities. 30 percent of the land in Stapleton is preserved for parks and open space, highlighted by Central Park, where dogs, joggers, cyclists, and rollerbladers can be found on paths virtually any day of the week. Biking and hiking paths also connect the area to the 17,000-acre Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge where a plethora of wildlife roams the plains east of downtown. It’s not unusual to spot golden eagles soaring in the skies above and bison wandering the wilderness! The pedestrian streets and fountains at The Shops at Northfield Stapleton offer a relaxed, outdoor shopping experience, with 18 movie theaters, sidewalk cafes, and more. Stapleton is located 15 minutes from Downtown Denver and 20 minutes from Denver International Airport. This planned community has a wide variety of newer homes ranging from the modest to the rather extravagant. Stapleton offers all the benefits of suburban living yet is not out in the suburbs—a perfect combination! We’d love to help you find your next home here.
