Stapleton at an average Denver area price: A grand opening for David Weekley’s single-family homes at Bluff Lake, from $465,000
By Mark Samuelson
Stapleton’s hugely successful transformation from an airport into a seven-square-mile, masterplanned community is all the more remarkable for how far prices have soared as the community has matured — with some builders now routinely passing the million-dollar mark. But David Weekley Homes will host you at a grand opening today for a single-family model priced from well-less than half of that, and can show one set for May move-in at $499,000.
David Weekley’s Bluff Lake neighborhood has all the allure that drives Stapleton’s popularity — two blocks from a pool center and within walking distance of the community’s new Stanley Marketplace, a conversion of an airport hangar into a wideopen venue for trendy dining, coffee shops and brew pubs. And David Weekley residents will be just blocks from Bluff Lake Nature Center – a trailhead into two miles of wildlife preserve along the Sand Creek Regional Greenway. After you tour the models, you can check out the trail overlook on MLK Boulevard at Lima Street, with a striking view of the downtown skyline and the Rockies beyond.
