Residential opportunities in the central business district of Denver include high-rise condos (with predictably terrific views) and numerous loft developments, many in historically significant structures. Denver’s downtown stays vibrant and active seven days a week—similar to Denver’s more familiar Lower Downtown (LoDo) area. In fact, the downtown’s residential growth rate matches LoDo’s.
It’s not surprising that downtown Denver boasts all the wonderful dining, cultural and fine arts opportunities you would expect and hope for in a major city. These include the Denver Performing Arts Complex, the Pepsi Center, the Denver Art Museum, the Paramount Theater and the Colorado History Museum. Given the public transportation system throughout the city, access to these and other similar venues throughout the area make owning a car strictly optional.
The 16-block 16th Street pedestrian mall is the focus of retail and nightlife activity through the downtown district, and the free transportation service along that stretch and beyond, links downtown Denver (including the state and local government buildings) to LoDo. From there, footbridges extend even further to the popular Commons Park/Confluence Park area where the South Platte and Cherry Creek converge and where the City of Denver was born.
Downtown Denver lies just east of LoDo, and is bordered by Broadway, Speer, Larimer and 20th St.
