A rendering of Willow Park East.
One of the largest urban redevelopments in the country, Stapleton has long been home to Colorado families seeking a balance between living in the city and spreading out in the suburbs. In fact, developers tout Stapleton as the sixth best-selling master-planned community in the country. Now, the real estate company Forest City Enterprises has announced the latest in the Stapleton building boom: a second neighborhood north of I-70 called Willow Park East.
The 770 homes in Willow Park East will range from 1,000 to more than 3,500 square feet with prices between about $150,000 and $800,000. Amenities will include energy-efficient design, porches, patios, rooftop decks, and a broad mix of architectural styles. The neighborhood is about 200 acres northeast of Conservatory Green, another somewhat-recent addition to the Stapleton portfolio. “Willow Park East strikes a perfect balance between nature and urban inspired living,” said John Lehigh, president of Forest City Stapleton, in a statement. “And like the rest of Stapleton, it embraces an urban, community oriented design that is accessible to a diverse array of people.”
What's more, for many families, schools are an attractive part of Stapleton neighborhood, and the new Willow Park East 'hood is also located near the new Stapleton public high school, which is scheduled to open 2015.
