Previously known as Stapleton, the Central Park neighborhood was built on the 4,700 acre site of the old Stapleton International Airport which served as Denver’s primary airport from 1929 to 1995. Forest City Enterprises was selected as a partner and master developer of this mixed-use, sustainable community with construction beginning in 2001 and continuing today.
The overall Central Park neighborhood is appealing to buyers who want a new or newer home in close proximity to downtown Denver and Denver International Airport. Lots are not huge in Central Park, but instead every home is located within a short walk to a large or small community park. Price points and home styles vary greatly providing options for buyers with a range of budgets and architectural preference.
The overall neighborhood is enormous in scale and is home to some 30,000 residents living in single-family homes, condos, townhomes and apartment units. Within the larger Central Park neighborhood, however, are twelve smaller areas constructed in sequence beginning with the East 29th Avenue area south of I-70 and ending north of I-70 with the North End area. Each of the twelve areas has its own unique character and attributes.
