It’s no secret that the amount of available homes for sale in Denver is a dwindling number, much to the dismay of prospective buyers. Thankfully, one Denver neighborhood has a solution: a large scale residential construction project that will being 770 homes to the area of Stapleton, specifically in a new construction neighborhood called Willow Park East. Homes at Willow Park East, north of Interstate 70, will come at a wide range of prices, beginning at the mid-$100,000 level and reaching to the $800,000s. Home sizes will run from 1,000 to 3,500 square feet.
The neighborhood aims to be a perfect mix of nature and urban living. Willow Park East is designed to include open spaces, parks, and is connected via public transportation to amenities such as The Shops at Northfield Stapleton and Denver International Airport. While there is no projected date for completion, the first homes in the 200-acre neighborhood are expected to be available in winter 2014.
The aim of Stapleton is also to provide a walkable and urban focused community rooted in the idea of “new urbanism,” which is the design movement that seeks to create walkable, mixed-used neighborhoods featuring small, compact residential lots and stores, schools and other amenities that can be easily reached by walking, biking and transit rather than driving.
