LoDo Denver Real Estate Listings
When defining the boundaries between Ballpark, Five Points, Curtis Park and even LoDo, there’s overlap and differing boundary designations depending on the source. For the purpose of this description, boundaries were chosen based on all available sources and common sense.
Short for lower downtown, "LoDo" is the Now-spot in Denver. As with the Ballpark neighborhood, LoDo Denver real estate is very much city-living, except with less urban-industrial style and more of a restored historic feel. LoDo is north-west of downtown and bordered on the west by Speer Boulevard, the south by Larimer Street, the east by 20th Street and the north by Wewatta Street. Read More...
Although LoDo Denver real estate is primarily commercial, there are many restored Victorian warehouse-lofts tuckedamong the clubs, restaurants, bars and boutiques. Unlike neighboring Riverfront Park, there are few buildings over five- or six-floors and far less art house highlights. Also, much of the industrial style found in Ballpark is played down in LoDo's homes, giving it that stylized historic feel. However, like Ballpark there are very few trees, very little grass and lots of parking lots. Concrete and red brick are the primary aesthetic staples.
While LoDo is best known for eating and drinking, it gained national attention as home to The Real World: Denver. Among its numerous hot-spots, some of the more long-lived include burrito-rolling Illegal Pete's, blackened and elegant Gumbo's Louisiana Style Café, saucy Vesta Dipping Grill, legendary El Chapultepec, and dance-till-you-drop Downtown Tavern. LoDo residents can also enjoy a Rockies, Nuggets, Avalanche or Mammoth game, jog the Cherry Creek Bike Path or relax in neighboring Commons and Confluence Parks without ever opening a car door.
LoDo Denver real estate is bordered on almost all sides by major thoroughfares including Speer, 20th and Broadway—all leading to I-25. Also, the Market Street Station is a major RTD hub, the FREE MallRide runs from Wewatta to Broadway on 16th and a Light Rail stop sits at the north-west border along Wewatta.
