As old school flat parking lots in downtown Denver are transformed into high rise new school lofts and condos throughout the city, the options for urban, high class living are becoming more prevalent throughout the Mile High City. Whether you are an early age professional who wants to live near work and among the downtown Denver nightlife or a Baby Boomer who is looking to downsize and simplify life while enjoying the condo/loft lifestyle and amenities, Denver offers various condo and loft options to fit the lifestyle for all ages and stages of life.
The Ballpark Neighborhood is Where Summer Action Happens for the Young Urban Crowd
Summertime in the Rockies is when action in the Ballpark Neighborhood heats up with music festivals, summer markets, baseball games and rooftop patios galore. The lure of local sports bars, night clubs and brew pubs attract the younger urbanite crowd who thrives on action and wants to live in the heart of sporting events, nightlife and a mix of upscale and casual eateries. Blake Street Lofts at 2560 Blake Street are what the Ballpark neighborhood is all about as residents can walk to an afternoon game at Coors Field, enjoy an afternoon brew at one of the many local microbreweries that call the Ballpark neighborhood home, and host summer weekend get-togethers with friends at The Lofts’ roof top deck BBQ, hot tub and game room amenities.
LoDo and LoHi Cater to Urban-Style Executive Professionals
LoDo is the epicenter of business, entertainment, sporting events and shopping. True urbanite professionals like to call LoDo home due to its proximity to many of the top downtown Denver companies, its vibrant nightlife and 24x7 metro city action. Hot LoDo condos for Denver’s executive professionals include the Ice House Lofts (1801 Wynkoop Street) with balconies, rooftop terraces and a gym, One Wynkoop Plaza (1735 19th Street) with luxury penthouses, spectacular views and a central location that can’t be beat, and 1430 Blake penthouse style lofts.
Located just west of downtown and connected to the hustle and bustle of city life via the Highlands pedestrian bridge is LoDo’s sister neighborhood, LoHi (Lower Highlands). LoHi is one of the hottest neighborhoods for downtown professionals as this hip and trendy neighborhood offers a mix of high-end condos, townhomes and lofts that are packed with amenities, as well as some of the best restaurants, bars and rooftop patios in the city. Some of the best upscale, urban properties that feature executive style amenities such as rooftop decks, clubhouses and fitness rooms include the Highland Bridge Lofts (16th and Central), LoHi Row (West 32nd Ave.) and 1736 Boulder five-story condo and loft building.
Lowry and Stapleton Offer Family-Friendly Condo Living with Action-Packed Amenities
Within 15 minutes of downtown, the Stapleton and Lowry neighborhoods are family-oriented communities that offer everything from high-end condos to luxury custom homes that are perfect for active families. Packed with amenities, these two nationally popular neighborhoods attract Denver families with unique town centers that are home to local restaurants, coffee shops and retail shopping, as well as various recreational centers, sports complexes, swimming pools and miles of nature trails and parks to keep Denver’s active families happily entertained.
Baby Boomers Flock to the Downtown Condo and Loft Lifestyle
As the Baby Boomer capital of America, Denver’s downtown condos and lofts offer urban living amenities and proximity of location that retiring Boomers are opting for as they transition to the next phase of their lives. Condo living appeals to today’s active Baby Boomers because they can spend more time enjoying what they love – the great Denver trail systems, exquisite dining options or the world-class Denver Performing Arts Center – and less time on home upkeep, maintenance and stress. With HOAs covering the labor intensive maintenance of home ownership, such as snow removal in the winter and lawn/garden care in the summer, and offering luxury amenities such as rooftop swimming pools, fitness centers and even community gardens, downtown condo living is a desirable option for today’s Baby Boomer community. The Brooks Towers Lofts in Downtown are centrally located near the Performing Arts Center and Denver Cadillac Lofts in the Golden Triangle scores a 95 in walkability with various restaurants and galleries at your doorstep.
