Stapleton actually goes north of I-70 at Quebec (Northfield), as well as south. Although still under construction, the Stapleton neighborhood has taken the recognizable shape of an idyllic, suburban neighborhood. At the East 29th Avenue Town Center, Quebec Square and Northfield at Stapleton shopping centers, Chipotles, Starbucks, Home Depots, SuperTargetsâ€”essentially any and all of your favorite chainsâ€”abound.
Where there are not stores and homes, there is open space. Developers have set aside nearly 30 percent of Stapleton's 4,700 acres to parks and recreation facilities, the nucleus of which will be "Central Park." Bike paths and running trails will soon follow, as will Stapleton's rise to be one of Denver's cleanest and greenest neighborhoods.
