Housing (The Great 5280)

Denver ranks in the top 10 of Forbes’ lists for “Best Places for Business and Careers” (fifth); “America’s Most Wired Cities” (seventh) and “America’s Safest Cities” (10th). From green-conscious Stapleton and energetic Capitol Hill to quirky downtown lofts, there's a neighborhood in Denver for every age, lifestyle and budget.

 

Downtown Denver is divided into two regions. One contains a lot of skyscrapers and office workers. The other -- LoDo -- is filled with older, smaller buildings (many made of brick) that have been converted into lofts, new condo towers and a density of restaurants, bars, and shops. Near Coors Field, the Pepsi Center and Elitch Gardens, an urban makeover changed lower downtown into an enclave of nightlife and shops. Home to many brewpubs, this historic area is filled with industrial buildings and Victorian architecture.
LoDo has Riverfront Park, a rolling, meandering grassy swatch of real estate fronting the Platte River, offering great mountain views, places to barbecue and plenty of space to hang out.

STAPLETON
15 minutes from Downtown Denver, 20 minutes from Denver International Airport and just 5 minutes from our Anschutz Medical Campus; Stapleton sets a new standard for urban living: a new generation of neighborhoods that 30,000 residents call home. Every home in Stapleton adheres to green standards of energy efficiency. But
Stapleton is more of a community than a neighborhood. Parks, including the 80-acre Central Park, thread the community. The development is based on “New Urbanism” principles, meaning public spaces are stressed. New lofts, townhouses, detached single-family homes and mini-mansions in a variety of architectural styles provide character in this family-friendly 'hood. ​

  

Technically split into two regions: Washington Park and Washington Park West. Both areas are appealing for young professionals in their 20s and 30s, as well as families and empty nesters looking to enjoy this neighborhood’s proximity to coffee shops, bars, record stores and outdoor pursuits. The actual Wash Park hosts more than 250 picnic permits per year with 165 acres and 54 flowerbeds.
This neighborhood's namesake park, a 165-acre sprawl of trees, grass, flowers, lakes and running paths, is what makes Wash Park one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Denver. But its dense cluster of quaint buildings from the 1920s and the mountain views help, too.

LOWRY

​The Lowry neighborhood has reclaimed a former Air Force base and turned it into an oasis for family living. Lowry was built within the last decade, and its homeowner love it's suburban tone that's also very close to Denver's many attractions and amenities. Bounded by 11th, Alameda, Yosemite and Monaco Parkway, this well-planned community offers nearby restaurants, retail shops and grocery stores as well as open space, public art and a town center of its own. There's even a skating rink for kids.

PARK HILL

Park Hill, with its friendly neighbors, mature trees and lovely gardens, is a favorite for many who like to stroll and smell the roses. Bounded by Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Quebec, Colfax and Colorado, Park Hill features diverse homes ranging from mansions to modest bungalows. Charming retail shops & restaurants tucked along Park Hill's quiet streets are local favorites and, sometimes, well-kept secrets. Resdients love its close proximity to City Park, golf courses and downtown.
