Denver, Colorado has been very lucky in the past years, with opportunities that other cities do not have. Ten years ago, we gained a brand new airport, DIA. The old airport Stapleton was given back to the city. Just prior to that Lowry Air Force Base was vacated and given back to the City of Denver for development.
The cleaning up and redeveloping of both areas has offered the residents of Denver expanded choices in real estate. It's been an economic boon to inner city living. Perfect for folks who want both a new home and the convenience of living close to work.
Both neighborhoods are on the eastern part of Denver, convenient to areas of commerce in Downtown Denver, I-70 and Cherry Creek. They both offer a variety of lifestyle choices in size, style and budget. Due to it's size, Stapleton will be under construction for at least another decade.
Patterned after the style of the old city, these neighborhoods offer detached garages with entrance from the alley. People say they like the feel of being able to "sit on the porch and talk to your neighbor."
The builders chosen for developing these neighborhoods are Green Builders, meaning they are using earth friendly materials.
Stapleton and Lowry neighborhoods both have booming neighborhood villages. Residents love to walk to dinner, shopping or relaxing. It is not unusual to see cyclists peddling single gear bikes around the neighborhood. What many people who are not from Denver don't realize, Denver is flat. Riding a bike here is easy, as soon as one gets used to the altitude!
