In our “bigger is better” culture, there’s an expectation that each home should be larger and grander than the last. But life changes like divorce, kids leaving for college, or even the simple act of growing older can prompt us to find a smaller home that better suits our shifting needs and lifestyle.

The River Mile

The next great place in the evolution of Denver. Located along a mile of the South Platte River, it’s envisioned as a sustainable, walkable downtown neighborhood. It will feature state-of-the-art residences for everyone – with public parks and promenades, a new elementary school, and a variety of shopping, dining, entertainment, and cultural destinations essential for family life in the city. Build-to-suit workspaces will range from business incubators to regional corporate headquarters. And public transit will be facilitated by two light rail stations. This is truly a one-of-a-kind project – the largest in downtown Denver – spanning 62 acres and expected to take up to 25 years to complete. Restoration of the river is now underway.…

LoHi is short for the "Lower Highlands" neighborhood located just west of the central downtown area. Technically speaking, it's the neighborhood that is sandwiched between LoDo and the Highlands, or for those who are more familiar with the streets of Denver, the area that extends south of Platte Street, across I-25 and blends into 32nd Street. 

 

LoHi has quickly become your Denver destination for some of the best restaurants and bars in the city. The overall vibe is more San Francisco than Denver, and the area's hills certainly add to that feel. Those hills also lend to some of the best views of the Downtown area you will find anywhere.
