|In a recent SEC filing, Forest City Enterprises announced it's selling a majority of its land holdings across the country in an effort to focus on its core business (building massive mixed-use
projects). But the company was quick to point out it will keep a couple
ongoing land development projects, including Stapleton. We spoke with
Forest City’s Tom Gleason (above, perched precariously on a steel beam of a high-rise, it appears) about Stapleton: “It encompasses a lot of our values,” he says, including a walkable urban setting. So far, the former Denver International Airport site has some 5,000 homes developed from various home builders (Forest City sold the lots) and will have 8,000 once build-out is complete.
