Stapleton Real Estate
Stapleton, CO is a popular master-planned community in Denver. Located in northeast Denver just up from Quebec Street and E. Montview Boulevard, this area was formerly the site of the Stapleton International Airport. In 1995, the tarmacs were closed for good and plans for new developments were well underway.
By 2001, when the annual Denver Parade of Homes featured some of the first Stapleton homes for sale, 100,000 visitors saw the makings of what would become irresistible attractions in years to come: seemingly endless parks and trails, newer home stylings that kept yard size to a manageable proportion, and a surprisingly easy commute into downtown’s central business district and to newly popular sports and entertainment in LoDo.

The reason Stapleton couldn’t remain an airport was the same reason it has become so popular with homebuyers now: Its terminal area and east-west runways were only five miles from the heart of downtown, prompting a lawsuit by residents of neighborhoods that lay in the landing patterns.
Now Stapleton ranks as the Denver area’s fastest-selling new home community year after year – a sales pace that has already completely transformed the expanse of its two-mile-long east-west runways between Montview and Martin Luther King Boulevard; and that is rapidly alterning the even larger expanse that had been its even longer north-south runways, reaching well north of Interstate 70. You’ll visit Conservatory Green – single-family homes by eight builders, along with some townhome and row home designs.
You’ll see attainably priced homes from the $300s by KB Home, Wonderland Homes and David Weekley; some cutting-edge net-zero-energy designs by New Town Builders; eastern seaboard architecture by Parkwood Homes; and upscale models by Standard Pacific and Infinity Home Collection.
Amenities Near Stapleton Real Estate
Stapleton homes for sale are close to parks and to the Shops at Northfield Stapleton, with a Macy’s, several big-box retailers including Bass Pro sporting goods, restaurants and a theater in an open-air ‘main street’ mall.
That walkability of shops and dining attractions has always been part of the allure of Stapleton real estate. The original shopping street at Stapleton Town Center on E. 29th Avenue was close to the airport’s terminal; now a site for regular events (including a farmer’s market) that foster a sense of ‘instant community.’ You’ll also see new Denver Public Schools and a vast ‘Central Park’ that mirrors Denver’s huge city parks created early in the 20th century, with trails that follow Westerly Creek and the Sand Creek Regional Greenway.
