Stapleton is Denver's premier sustainable community and one of the largest urban infill projects in the United States. It was created on the site of the city’s former airport, which was decommissioned in the mid-1990s.
Rather than following conventional suburban models that contribute to sprawl, Stapleton integrates “New Urbanist” concepts with the very best features of traditional city life, together with a network of open spaces, parks, schools, community centers, and supporting retail and office to create a true live/work environment.
At Stapleton, residents can enjoy walkable, tree-lined streets connecting homes to nearby offices, shops, schools and parks. Each home is distinct and each street inviting with street-facing front porches rather than garage doors. Stapleton also has more than 500 acres of open space, including a large central park, trails and bike paths promoting healthy outdoor living and the sense of community.
