Greenways at Stapleton

The first market-rate apartment community for active adults at Stapleton is officially breaking ground today. 

The 108-unit development, called Greenways at Stapleton, is in the heart of Stapleton at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Ulster Street.

“Greenways is a smart choice for people aged 55+ who want to live a maintenance-free lifestyle close to all that Stapleton offers—shopping, dining, parks and events,” said John Thode, director of development for Wisconsin-based Horizon Development Group. “We’re already hearing from folks who want to live closer to family or retire in the area.”

The Greenways will feature 48 one-bedroom, 53 two-bedroom and seven two-bedroom plus den apartments.

They’ll offer a wide variety of floor plans, with apartments ranging in size from 700 to 1,200 square feet.

All apartments feature functional layouts, nine-foot ceilings, full kitchens, in-unit washers and dryers, energy efficient design and appliances and private balconies or patios. Rents start at $1,000 per month.

Amenities for residents include a large clubroom with kitchen; outdoor landscaped plaza; fitness room; café with free WiFi; private dining/meeting room; activity room; and underground parking. A community manager will schedule on and off-site gatherings.

The community is an easy walk or bike ride to the 29th Avenue Town Center shopping and dining district, a new library, a state-of-the-art recreation center, neighborhood events and numerous parks and swimming pools.

The 118,000 square-foot, $16 million project is being developed by Horizon Development Group and Denver-based WC Johnson LLC. The general contractor is Horizon Construction Group and the property manager is Denver-based Ross Management Group

“Each of our developments is uniquely tailored to the surrounding neighborhood and to the lifestyles of prospective residents,” said Thode. “There is a tremendous demand for this kind of product in metro Denver and we are working on additional opportunities.”
