- Conservatory Green is the first neighborhood north of I-70 in Stapleton.
- In 14 months, 477 homes have sold.
- Work has begun an another neighborhood.
Almost 500 homes have been purchased in Conservatory Green, exceeding expectations in Stapleton’s newest neighborhood.
Developer Forest City Stapleton launched Conservatory Green, the first of several new neighborhoods north of Interstate 70, last spring.
Homes in the neighborhood are priced from the $150,000s to about $800,000.
Builders in Conservatory Green include:
- Boulder Creek Neighborhoods.
- David Weekley Homes.
- Infinity Home Collection.
- KB Home.
- New Town Builders.
- Northeast Denver Housing.
- Parkwood Homes.
- Standard Pacific Homes.
- Wonderland Homes.
Architectural styles include the Stapleton ‘Prairie’, ‘Farmhouse,’ Foursquare’, ‘Modern’, and ‘Craftsman’ homes.
Not only are sales exceeding projections in the 14 months since Conservatory Green opened, but two new pools are opening this summer, parks are being completed, and schools are moving forward at Stapleton.
Thirty percent of the homebuyers in Conservatory Green to date in 2013 are already Stapleton residents.
This includes Stapleton residents, Ronald Dean and Jerry McKinney, who are moving from their home in the 29th Avenue Towne Center to their new patio home in Conservatory Green.
“We chose Conservatory Green for the views of downtown and the mountains,” said McKinney, who recently purchased a Boulder Creek Neighborhoods home in Conservatory Green with his partner, Dean.
“Don’t be surprised to see me standing at the edge of Prairie Basin Park staring at the awesome views,” added McKinney. He said Northfield will become their new town center, noting they already frequent many of the restaurants there.
Housing in the new neighborhood includes townhomes with main floor masters ideal for baby boomers, duplexes for young professional and large single-family homes, offering something for almost everyone.
For those who would rather rent than buy, the first phase of the Aster Conservatory Green’s 700 apartments has opened.
The Aster Conservatory Green apartments are adjacent to The Shops at Northfield Stapleton.
Even beyond Conservatory Green, Stapleton is an important piece on the Denver chess board.
Stapleton was ranked 11th in the nation for sales for master planned communities for 2013, and it has accounted for roughly 10 percent of all homes sold in Denver last year, according to Metrolist.
“Each time we launch a new neighborhood in Stapleton, we accept a challenge to advance Stapleton’s reputation as a thoughtfully planned, sustainable community that enhances the quality of life for its residents,” said John S. Lehigh, president and chief operating officer of Forest City Stapleton.
“Conservatory Green is well on its way to meeting that challenge.”
So far, more than 477 homes have sold in Conservatory Green with more than 800 planned for this neighborhood located just north of The Shops at Northfield Stapleton.
Several miles of parks and greenways are being woven through the Conservatory Green.
An array of edible landscape elements have been incorporated into the neighborhood including Montmorency apple and cherry trees, plums, grapes, raspberries, strawberries, peppermint, chives, gooseberry, sage and thyme among others.
Meanwhile, the Conservatory Green Plaza will be completed this summer. The outdoor space will feature a structure for shade, a water feature and the community’s first fire pit.
Homes are selling so fast at Stapleton that the available inventory is being quickly depleted.
To meet demand, infrastructure for Stapleton’s ninth neighborhood is currently under construction— with builders preparing to start construction in July.
Meanwhile, two new Denver Public Schools are currently under development, including High Tech Elementary and a new public High School that will serve all of Stapleton.
Additionally, two new pools have been completed and opened Memorial Day.
