Cuningham Group celebrated the Northfield at Stapleton Apartments’ grand opening celebration with community members, business leaders and local officials including Mayor Michael Hancock.
Northfield at Stapleton houses 84 energy efficient units with a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom floorplans. The demand for affordable housing in Denver is so high that within a day and a half of leasing, all 84 units had been reserved. Residents will be calling it home later this week as move-in begins.
“The development has a lot of best practice, sustainable and energy-efficient features makes it a quality product,” said Getabecha Mekonnen, executive director of Northeast Denver Housing Center. “It is place-based. Within walking distance from where we’re standing today, there are over 6,000 jobs, a shopping center with a full-service grocery store, pharmacy, movie theaters. Within a mile, we have the Stapleton transit station.”
