Nothing ever made a better match-up than when Maryland based Parkwood Homes first showed its Eastern Seaboard home architecture to planners at Forest City (now Brookfield Properties) Stapleton, who were turning Denver’s former airport site into a 7-square-mile master planned community.
Now Parkwood’s homes in Stapleton are a legend – first having lured East Coast transplants who loved their traditional American look; and then a new generation of buyers, many already living in Stapleton, who were invited into those homes and wanted it for themselves. Now that kismet is working
again. Last year, planners at Parkwood and at Forest City (now Brookfield Properties) happened to tour the same 19th century neighborhood in Louisville, Kentucky, where early American homes line a ‘walking court’ green. Forest City (now Brookfield Properties) is now re-creating that setting for Parkwood as Boston Street Gardens at Stapleton, a village lining a landscaped pedestrian walkway. The location lies within Stapleton’s newest neighborhood – Wicker Park, near Conservatory Green and Willow Park East, close to Northfield High and vast Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge, as well as to The Shops at Northfield Stapleton and a host of restaurants arriving along Northfield Boulevard.
