Know Exactly What You Need
To find the ideal builder, you need to know exactly what it is you desire. Some contractors may specialize in a certain size, type or price range. With some specifics in mind, you’ll find it easier to locate a home builder suited to your needs.
Look for Experienced Builders
Experience is something you definitely shouldn't overlook. The builder's ability to deal with unexpected obstacles will determine the outcome of your new construction. According to a Denver Roofing contractor from Pinnacle Roofing Solutions, experience often makes the difference between a successful new home construction and a mess. "Don't settle for someone who has minimal or no professional history. The risks aren't worth the relatively small savings you might find."

With so many new construction projects going on in the metro Denver area recently, it hasn’t been easy to keep pace. In 2014, we saw amazing developments all over the city, with the new Union Station probably being the biggest achievement of them all. Here’s a quick recap of still ongoing projects that we think have the chance to shape some of Denver’s best neighborhoods in 2015 and beyond.
The projects surrounding Union Station are still providing us with exciting news. Recently it was announced that there will be a 56,000 SF flagship Whole Foods grocery store built on the ground floor level of a planned 10-story structure at 17th and Wewatta. Ground will be broken in 2015.
The Triangle Building, located at 16th and Wewatta, is another development about to change the skyline in LoDo. Construction is already well underway. The building’s stunning glass facade is already going up.

Affordable living in Downtown Denver is getting harder and harder to come by. Denver’s popularity is growing. Each and every year people discover that Denver has an exceptional quality of life, is still relatively inexpensive, has great weather and offers endless recreational activities.
As more people discover and fall in love with Denver, it’s natural to see housing prices climb. Increased demand puts upward pressure on price. We are seeing this result as prices in neighborhoods like Jefferson Park, Lohi, Sloans Lake and Highland have surged considerably in the last 3 years.
It is predicted that prices in these same neighborhoods will continue to climb in the coming years. This prediction stems from the massive amount of renovation and infill happening with the Denver Union Station and RTD Light Rail project currently underway in Lower Downtown (Lodo).
So, where do you go if you want to enjoy all that Downtown has to offer but don’t want break the bank to get it? Simple, Osage Place.
Osage Place is located at 4301 Osage St., Denver, CO, 80211 in Sunny Side. The Sunny Side Neighborhood is located directly north of Lohi between 38th and I-70. Osage Place offers 13 town homes priced from $410,900 to $420,900. These luxuriously outfitted homes are between 1,435 and 1,505 square feet, have 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, have an office/3 bedroom, offer spacious roof decks with city views and have numerous upgrade options.
