Northfield at Stapleton

Denver, Colorado

A 130-acre entertainment and shopping district located at the intersection of I-70 and Quebec, Northfield incorporates major anchor stores, specialty shops/boutiques, restaurants and a theatre in a “Main Street” concept. The landscape design promotes wayfinding and placemaking with the development of individual landscape palettes for various site functions. The project received a USGBC LEED®-CS Silver certification and served as a sustainable design pilot project for the development of core and shell certification standards. To achieve this, Norris Design implemented water-conserving techniques including subsurface irrigation, low water-use plant material, a non-potable water system and soil moisture-sensing technology.
