Today, there are three elementary schools (Westerly Creek Elementary, Bill Roberts Elementary, and SMIS, and four neighborhood pools (Puddle Jumper, Aviator, Jetstream and F-15 pools). There is a beautiful towncenter located at 29th and Quebec (shops include: Starbucks, Einstein Bagels, Amori Fiore Flowers, Noodles, Chipotle, The Berkshire, Casey’s and many others…) To learn more about Stapleton, click here.

Why Buyers like Stapleton:

  • Family Friendly – It’s a very family friendly area, with lots and lots of kids. People come for the vast array of running and biking trails, dog parks, pools, and tons of parks, including 80-acre Central Park with an acre of playground equipment. In the summer, there are public movies and concerts in the towncenter, which are heavily attend by residents.
  • It’s New – the housing there is new, which is unique for Central Denver, as most of the housing in Denver is older, pre -1950s. People like the open floorplans, huge closets and alley loaded garages. They also like the ability to build their own house (through one of the developments builders) to meet their family’s needs. Solar panels and community recycling drives are common place.
  • Proximity – Stapleton feels like a suburb in the city. Residents like being in a new development, but not out in the suburbs. Stapleton is 15 minutes from Downtown and Lodo (Coors Field), and located 15 minutes north east of Cherry Creek. With easy access to I-70, it’s also very convenient to Denver International Airport.

What Buyers don’t like about Stapleton:

  • Trees or lack thereof – Being a new development, Stapleton lacks the large trees that are common througout Central Denver. The trees are growing fast, and the City of Denver (via Mayor Hickenlooper) have committed to placing a million trees in Stapleton, but it will take many years before they are fully grown.
  • It’s a litte too perfect – Some buyers tend to shy away from Stapleton because it is a little too planned and organized. While most people like this, some people want more of an ecelectic mix of housing and styles.
