Just recently visited several new urbanist developments in the Denver/Boulder area including one of the largest of these types of development in the US, Stapleton. While a lot is said and discusssed about these types of developments, they sure are a big step forward from your typical suburban, strip plaza projects that dot the American landscape.

Please note: I try not to take pics of people, but all the project had plenty of people out and about.

First up Stapleton.
This project is on the former grounds of the Stapleton International Airport and is a massive project. I really liked the quality green/pedestrian space and the diverse architectural styles that gave the project a more organic feel.

Holiday in Boulder. Interesting project built on the northside of town near an older industrial area. What made Holiday interesting was it nice mix of live work units, it integration of sustainable concepts, like the community garden and the feeling that it was a real place (not built by disney).

Live Work units.

Community Garden.

Arista in Broomfield next to the 1st Bank Arena. This project should see more development once the BRT system is completed between Denver and Boulder.

Construction of the future BRT station.

Thank You for showing these developments. It shows that the Denver area is progressive and moving toward a good future with Transit Oriented Developments (TOD), mixed use housing and walkable communities.
