Good news for homebuyers looking for
options in the northern suburbs. Last week Forest City Enterprises Inc., the
developer of Stapleton, unveiled plans for Willow Park East, its second housing
community north of Interstate 70. The new 770-home neighborhood is anticipated
to have a completed value of hundreds of millions of dollars and is projected

Stapleton’s very popular Conservatory Green neighborhood.

be available including ‘Prairie’, ‘Farmhouse,’ Foursquare,’ ‘Modern,’ and
‘Craftsman’ homes. In keeping with the theme of walkability
and convenience, Willow Park East will be in close proximity to a dog park, the
