Downtown Denver / LODO Real Estate
Buying A Home In Downtown / Lodo
Downtown or Lower Downtown (LoDo) is the most urban neighborhood to live in the state of Colorado. This is an ideal spot for someone looking to live the city life while still getting a small-town feel. It is the central hub of downtown Denver with many coffee shops, businesses, bars, restaurants and galleries, as well as the new Whole Foods Lodo. The neighborhood houses Auraria campus and the University of Colorado, Community College of Denver and Metropolitan State University.
It was created when the first railroad came in from Cheyenne, Wyoming and was the first place that travelers saw. This created a growth spurt for the Denver area. Art and history lovers would enjoy the limitless options including Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, Museum of Contemporary Art, Children’s Museum of Denver and the Denver Art Museum. In terms of schools, only one is housed in this neighborhood, a private school for preschool to fourth grades, Hilltop Montessori.
Downtown Denver offers an expansive mixture of business, arts, entertainment, recreation, dining and shopping. The architecture in downtown varies from converted warehouses to modern condos, industrial buildings renovated into offices, lofts, townhomes and high-rise buildings offering incredible views. Downtown Denver offers easy access to the newly built Union Station, home to a flagship Whole Foods, as well as the light rail going to and from Denver International Airport. This area has an edgy but fashionable flair, putting the best of Denver at your fingertips.
