Neighborhood Profile Stapleton
Taking the place of Denver’s original airport, the neighborhood of Stapleton has transformed into a family-friendly, mixed-use area that is getting great reviews. Northwest of downtown Denver, Stapleton is bordered by Quebec Street on the west and Smith Road on the north. Stapleton’s southern borders include East 26th Avenue down to East Montview Boulevard and then up to East 23rd Avenue.
After the opening of Denver International Airport, Stapleton was repurposed and transitioned into one of the largest urban in-fill development areas in the U.S.
Today, Stapleton is filled with a fantastic mix of residential areas, including both houses and apartments, and upward of 330 businesses, including the FBI's 220,000-square-foot regional headquarters, U.S. Bank's state operations building, the A.F. Williams Medical Center and the Northfield Business Park, a 50-acre area close to retailers and restaurants nearby.
Besides Northfield, Stapleton's other business parks include Enterprise Park and Central Park Station. Popular retail stops include The Shops at Northfield Stapleton (across from the Northfield Business Park), East 29th Avenue Town Center and Quebec Square.
According to Trulia.com, Stapleton currently has 10 smaller residential communities, with a median home price of $490,000, down two percent from July 2015.
There are also plans for the development of Beeler Park, which will add 822 energy-efficient homes near the intersection of Central Park Boulevard and 56th Avenue.
As part as the area's affordable housing program, Thrive Home Builders and Forest City Stapleton announced last spring that they are building 165 new town homes starting at just $172,900.
