Get in touch with nature …
Stapleton’s newest neighborhood will move you closer to Denver’s great outdoors.
The Bluff Lake neighborhood is just south of the Bluff Lake Nature Center, a 123-acre refuge on Stapleton’s eastern edge. The center was adjacent to the Stapleton International Airport for 60 years, giving it time to develop into an urban oasis for waterfowl, songbirds, deer, beavers and other wildlife.
Construction began at Bluff Lake neighborhood last summer. One hundred and twenty homes will be built between Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and 26th Avenue, while another phase of 150 homes could be added later this year.
The Denver neighborhood will also have red accents as well as something for all the senses: Not only can you take in the nearby nature center, but your sense of sound, taste, touch and smell will be delighted by new pocket parks built just for them. From wind chimes to lilacs and cherry trees, each park will include interactive landscaping and other tangible (or tasty) features.
By the way, it’s all just a 10-minute bike ride to the Fitzsimons Life Science District and the Anschutz Medical Campus.
