DENVER - As Denver finishes building the nation's newest airport, city officials face the equally gargantuan task of redeveloping the eight-square-mile area that is now Stapleton International Airport.

Even though Stapleton will not close until Denver International Airport opens in October 1993, city officials and others are developing a long-term project to convert the 4,300-acre site to a variety of uses. In the process, they hope to generate up to $75 million to help retire debt on the new airport.
