I see a lot of lofts selling real estate in Downtown Denver. So it’s not too often when I see something so truly remarkable that even I am blown away. But that is certainly the case with this loft located smack in the middle if Denver’s hot Downtown Central Business District.
In case you haven’t noticed or if you are new to the city, there are a lot of changes going on! Denver has recently entered the international scene now that it will be host to both the Ritz Carlton and the Four Seasons. And in case you haven’t heard, the Democratic National Convention will be held at the newly completed Convention Center in August 2008!
Why all the fuss? Because none of these changes are occurring in Denver’s uber-popular and pricey LoDo District, that’s why. These changes are all occurring just a few blocks east in the heart and core of Denver’s Business District. This is where the light rail
has already been in existence for years and where the 16th St. Pedestrian Mall (celebrating it’s 25th anniversary) pulses every day with the vibrancy of Downtown’s lunch crowds and free shuttle service. Even Denver’s Performing Arts Complex, one of the largest in the country outside Lincoln Center in NYC, is within blocks of all this fantastic regeneration and growth. So it makes sense that owning residential real estate in this part of the city would be a smart investment.
I have the opportunity for you! At the Baldwin Lofts, once voted by Westword as Denver’s Best re-creation of an authentic building in NYC’s SoHo neighborhood, a unit is on the market that has been completely and artistically renovated by a longtime owner. The perfect size for a part time resident or first time buyer, this loft has about 850 sq ft of warmth and authenticity that elevates it far beyond its similarly sized competitors. The space is filled with elegant lighting, soaring walls of exposed brick, hardwood and slate tile floors, custom-milled and installed wood wall treatments, and spectacular murals and paint treatments that will remove you from the worries of hastles of the day as you relax into the evening. For the chef, the kitchen has brand new cabinets and stainless appliances, including a 2-drawer Fisher-Paykel dishwasher. And just outside on the balcony, you can grill up a steak on the built-in grill while enjoying the urban view of the D&F Tower, one of Denver’s Finest historical landmarks.
