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 to sell out quickly. Home lots will be available this summer with the first homes expected to close in the winter.

Forest City Enterprises said the homes in the new development will be priced from the mid-$100,000s to $800,000s in the 200-acre community that is bordered by East 51 and East 56 avenues, Spruce Street and Central Park Boulevard. The new community is northeast of Stapleton’s very popular Conservatory Green neighborhood.
Forest City said Willow Park East will “maintain the same DNA,” as the rest of Stapleton, which has been ranked the sixth best-selling master-planned community in the U.S, with a slight twist. “Willow Park East strikes a perfect balance between nature and urban inspired living,” said John Lehigh, president of Forest City Stapleton. “And like the rest of Stapleton, it embraces an urban, community-oriented design that is accessible to a diverse array of people.”
The new homes will range in size from 1,000 square feet to more than 3,500 square feet and will meet or exceed Energy Star 3.0 standards, making them some of the most environmentally-friendly residences in the area. Additionally, a variety of architectural home style choices will 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 Shops at Northfield, the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge Center, Dick’s Sporting Good’s Park, Maverick Pool, and it also features easy access to Interstate 70.
