Planning for the Last Section in Stapleton
The Stapleton Green Book, the city-adopted blueprint for the redevelopment of approximately 4,700 acres of the former Stapleton Airport, provides a vision for a sustainable, mixed use community. Over the past decade, the City of Denver, together with Forest City Stapleton, Stapleton Development Corporation and the input of Stapleton’s growing community, has brought this vision to reality. Forest City is now planning for the final 602 acres of property located north of I-70 in Stapleton, an area known as Section 10. Approximately 1 square mile, Section 10 is bound on the south by 56th Avenue and on the north and east by the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge; it is immediately adjacent to Commerce City and Dick's Sporting Goods Park on the west.
