Third Stapleton community north of I-70 underway

Forest City Enterprises is starting work on the third Stapleton neighborhood that will be north of Interstate 70.

Wicker Park will offer 240 single-family homes surrounding a large park complete with playground, grassy fields and gardens.

"One of the best things about Stapleton is the unique characteristics embraced by each of the neighborhoods that make up our community," says John Lehigh, president of Forest City Stapleton. "Starting with 29th Avenue to the Willow Park East neighborhood and now onto Wicker Park, each neighborhood has its own identity. Wicker Park will embrace a charming and quaint urban vibe thanks to the bouquet of home styles lining the streets."

Wicker Park will offer a variety of home styles, from classic cottage bungalows to sleek modern designs. Seven different homebuilders will be building a variety of floor plans ranging from 1,100-square-foot, two-bedroom homes up to 3,800-square-foot, five-plus-bedroom homes. Prices will range from about $200,000 to $900,000.

At the northern edge of Wicker Park is the Boston Street Garden, a concept that combines green lawns with walking paths that stretch between seasonal flower gardens and large shade trees.

"Boston Street Garden combines front yards with a shared garden space and creates a true urban oasis," says Lisa Hall, builder program director at Forest City Stapleton. "Inspiration was drawn from the charming brick road lined with elegant homes adjacent to outdoor gardens, known as Louisville Lane in Louisville, Kentucky."
