LOUISVILLE – Boulder Creek Builders LLC, a homebuilder based in Louisville, announced Tuesday it will build 15 homes in the Stapleton development in Denver, after reaching an agreement with the project’s master developer. The homes will be the company’s first project in the Denver area.
Stapleton is the major redevelopment project that is converting Denver’s former international airport into a master-planned community based on new-urbanism principles. Forest City Enterprises Inc. (NYSE:FCE.A), a Cleveland-based development company, is Stapleton’s developer. 12,000 homes and apartments are planned for the area.
Boulder Creek Builders will build patio homes in the Bluff Lake neighborhood. Construction of the first home is scheduled to begin in September, and the first model will be open by early 2013. Promotional material from Stapleton says the homes’ selling prices will start in the low $400,000.
Building in Stapleton is a milestone for Boulder Creek Builders, principal David Sinkey said. The company’s current projects are in Louisville, Longmont and Loveland.
“This is a significant leap for Boulder Creek Builders given the size and significance of the Stapleton community,” Sinkey said in an email. “Not only does it represent our first entrÃ©e into the Denver market but also a new and exciting step for us as we identify new markets for growth throughout the Front Range.”
Boulder Creek Builders will be building homes targeted to baby boomers, said Stapleton builder program director Lisa Hall. The company will build an undisclosed number of homes as Stapleton expands north of Interstate 25.
“The strategy and vision behind Boulder Creek’s homes are a perfect fit for this community and we look forward to a long-standing relationship as we move to North Neighborhoods,” Hall said in a press release.
