Clients often ask me: “What is the most popular area in Denver for new housing?” The good news is Denver has many neighborhoods with what we call “in-fills”. They might be large communities or just a single home. Lately, our redevelopment of the old Stapleton airport has been in the news.
The most renowned Denver infill project is the Stapleton Redevelopment Project in East Denver. Stapleton was at one time the number one infill development site in the nation. Now it is still in the top five. But there is a lot of activity on the West side of Denver as well.
The most active area for infills now in West Denver is in Highlands Community, just West of Downtown Denver. Highlands is the “hottest area” in Denver for some time now, whether it comes to the fine, older turn of the century homes or the newly built homes, duplexes, townhomes and condos throughout this prolific area. Denver’s Highlands is one of the oldest communities in Denver, with it’s history starting before the turn of the century. This is the link to the slick, new Denver Infills Map
Some of the best features that make Denver’s Highlands so popular are the proximity to Downtown, the style of homes, the diversity, and that there is something for everyone. There are homes and condos ranging from the low $200,000’s to over $1,000,000 dollars. Other benefits are that it is a quick trip to the mountains and foothills and that many of the Highlands areas are walking distance to some of the most popular restaurants in Denver.
Some of the homes and developments have great views of the mountains and captivating views of Downtown Denver. Highlands is also close to the Rockies Coors Field and close to the Broncos Authority Field at Mile High.
