To be honest, when the home builders in Stapleton first turned our attention to the community’s move north of I-70, there was some uncertainty and maybe even a little apprehension.  How would potential homeowners react to the move?  Would the north neighborhoods feel like they were part of Stapleton?

On the other hand, we had seen firsthand the almost miraculous transformation of the old runways and parking garage of Stapleton Airport into one of the nation’s best selling and most vibrant new communities.  And we were happy with our new house plans–the result of incorporating the best ideas from our customers’ meetings with our architect and a lot of thought and effort from the entire Parkwood team.  So as we made plans to open new models and make the move north, we were cautiously optimistic.

As it turned out, between a sharp upturn in the real estate market and great planning and preparation by Forest City and all of the builders who developed new house plans, Conservatory Green has been a HUGE success!  Before we even opened our two new single family models in Conservatory Green, we had either sold or reserved almost all of our 30 or so home sites in the neighborhood.  And things haven’t slowed down yet.  August, normally a slow time of year, was one of our best months ever, and new home sites are being snapped up almost as fast as we can get them ready.

It’s been amazing to see how quickly a neighborhood is springing up out of the dirt in Conservatory Green.  It’s going to be a special place–just a few minutes walk to shops, dining, and entertainment at Northfield, surrounded by beautiful and spacious parks, with the Conservatory Green plaza in the center of it all for social events and activities.
