Denver is a busy, growing metropolis. Downtown consists mainly of office buildings, sports and entertainment venues, great restaurants and shopping. As far as living there, Downtown Denver Is Clean, Safe and Thriving.
Housing options include lofts, condominiums, town homes and even single family homes in the heart of downtown. LoDo is the "younger" crowds’ favorite area near Coors Field, and consists primarily of high-rise condo living. But, Highlands, Curtis Park, Golden Triangle and Riverfront are all adjacent to LoDo and offer expanded housing options for urban pioneers looking to improve homes and neighborhoods. Renovations of historic homes are common in Highlands and Curtis Park. Even, City Park, Golden Triangle, Baker and Regis neighborhoods have many renovations in progress or completed.
More exclusive communities near downtown include: The Denver Country Club, Polo Club, Cherry Creek, Hilltop, Crestmoor, Bonnie Brae, Belcaro and Washington Park. These areas are popular with professionals who can afford the elevated price tags on homes here. It is not uncommon for homes and condominiums here to reach the $400-$500 per square foot range.
These communities are extremely residential in flavor with very few or no apartment buildings. Each offers its own amenities including our famous parks. Shopping is nearby each community. All are within minutes to Cherry Creek shopping center which is both a fashion mall and boutique shopping and entertainment area.
