RiNo homes for sale are experiencing a surge of interest due to the new amenities that are persistently migrating to the area.
RiNo, short for river north, refers to a section of Denver that is north of downtown on the Platte River. This area of the city was the warehouse district, primarily comprised of businesses conducting light and heavy industrial activities.
In 2007 the RiNo Arts District was formed and in moved a collection of local artists that began the transformation of the area from a strictly industrial zone to gritty arts district. Many industrial warehouse spaces were converted to art galleries and that concept began to snowball.
Homes for sale in RiNo began to spring up as converted warehouses, repurposed to loft style condos. As the popularity of the neighborhood began to grow, developers moved in and a land grab began. The initial wave of RiNo homes for sale were townhomes, followed by a siege of apartment development. The next major wave of development will likely be condos. The World Trade Center will be constructed at 38th and Blake St. and is necessitating a re-zoning of the immediate area to accommodate an 18 story twin-tower plan. This re-zoning will make condo development very attractive for landowners in the area.

New restaurants, bars, breweries, distilleries, boutiques, shops, and markets seem to open up weekly.
