Forest City Enterprises, Inc. is excited to announce that Stapleton – currently the fourth best-selling master-planned community in the country – continues its transformation from the former site of an international airport to a thriving and inclusive Denver community with Stapleton’s 10th neighborhood Wicker Park. This third neighborhood north of Interstate 70 will offer 240 single-family homes, making demand for these new lots high. Aptly named, the Wicker Park neighborhood will boast a large park surrounded by charming traditional and modern homes, complete with a playground, grassy fields and gardens.
“One of the best things about Stapleton is the unique characteristics embraced by each of the neighborhoods that make up our community,” said John Lehigh, president of Forest City Stapleton. “Starting with 29th Avenue neighborhood, to Willow Park East neighborhood and now onto Wicker Park, each neighborhood has its own identity. Wicker Park will embrace a charming and quaint urban vibe thanks to the bouquet of home styles lining the streets.”
While Wicker Park neighborhood may be considered petite compared to the area’s other neighborhoods, it will offer a wide variety of home styles. From classic cottage bungalows to sleek modern designs, the homes will feature crafted details and colors inspired by nature. Seven different homebuilders will be building a variety of floorplans ranging from 1,100 square feet, two bedroom homes up to 3,800 square feet, 5+ bedroom homes. Prices will range from the $200s to the $800s, creating a lively and diverse neighborhood for all life stages.
In the heart of the neighborhood lives Wicker Park. This community gathering place has it all—from a large grassy field for soccer, to bountiful gardens and a large playground for the kids. At the northern edge of Wicker Park is the Boston Street Garden—a concept that combines cool green lawns, with walking paths that stretch between seasonal flower gardens, and large shady trees. Elegant homes accentuate Boston Street with colors and architectural styles hand-selected to create charming city street scenes.
“Boston Street Garden combines front yards with a shared garden space and creates a true urban oasis,” said Builder Program Director Lisa Hall of Forest City Stapleton. “Inspiration was drawn from the charming brick road, lined with elegant homes adjacent to outdoor gardens, known as Louisville Lane in Louisville, Kentucky.”
Centrally situated just east of Conservatory Green and Willow Park East neighborhoods, Wicker Park is close to the city and surrounded by nature and brings them together in a single, vibrant, convenient location with long trails and wide stretches of seeded prairie grasses in almost every direction. Moreover, it is mere blocks from several high-quality schools that Stapleton is known for — including a brand new Northfield High School which opened fall of 2015. Ample retail and commercial is nearby at The Shops Northfield Stapleton.
