LoDo

Lower Downtown, coined LoDo, transformed in the early 1990’s from a warehouse district into an energetic and vibrant neighborhood with lofts, condos, restaurants, art galleries, book stores, and shops. People of all ages who move here are young at heart—enjoying the vitality of this urban neighborhood.

Downtown Denver is a people-friendly place. It offers Larimer Square, the 16th Street Mall with its free Shuttle, a spectacular Performing Arts complex, new hotels and residential housing.

Many of the commercial buildings, such as The Denver Dry and Boston Bank, have been converted to rental apartments and owner-occupied condos.

Uptown

Uptown is a great location for housing and re-development.

Close to downtown commerce and nearby uptown hospitals, this neighborhood is roughly bordered by Broadway, 20th, 17th, and Park Avenue West.

Uptown is a blend of modern developments, venerable brick apartments, and East Coast brownstones — set against the gleaming silver backdrop of downtown's sky-scrapers.

The conversion of an abandoned hospital into upscale St. Luke’s Lofts, the development of housing at Post Properties, and many other new developments, add density and activity to this once-neglected area. Other beautiful Victorian buildings and town homes have also been lovingly refurbished into chic urban residences.

Nearby neighborhoods include The Hospital District, Capitol Hill, Whittier, and San Rafael.

Highland

The Highland area is a newly rediscovered near-downtown neighborhood. Neglected homes are being refurbished and new projects are being developed. Highland originated in 1858 when Denver founder William H. Larimer, Jr., waded across the Platte River to stake out high ground on the bluffs northwest of Denver. In the 1890’s, waves of immigrants made their homes in this area. Highland is a 15-minutes walk to Lower Downtown and the Central Business District. Broadly bordered by West 38th Avenue, the west side of I-25, Speer and West 32nd Avenue to Federal, Highland encompasses more than 300 acres of urban living. With a variety of architectural styles, Highland has become a magnet for young professionals.

The signature of Highland, Lowell & 32nd offers quaint boutiques, a wine store, great restaurants, and nightlife.
