My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Speer

speer neighborhood 2

The Speer Neighborhood lays right in the heart of the city.  Bordered by Speer Blvd to the north, Downing to the east, Alameda to the south and Broadway to the west, Speer is surrounded by all of the attractions Denver has to offer.  Broadway has tons of restaurants and night life such as Beatrice and Woodsley, the Irish Rover, Punch Bowl Social and the Mayan Theater.  Washington Park is just to the south and Capitol Hill and Downtown are north of the neighborhood with even more fun city attractions to offer.  Cherry Creek shopping center is easy to access and the Cherry Creek bike and running path leads right through the north end of the neighborhood.  The quiet streets of Speer are attractive to those that want to access and experience downtown living without the noise of city life.

Please meet Bob Wyatt who thoroughly enjoys living in this neighborhood:

“I feel very fortunate to reside in the Speer District near Third Avenue and Logan Street. In addition to great views of downtown Denver and the Front Range, extending  from Long’s Peak down to Pike’s Peak, the condo building where I live is a short 5-10 minute drive from popular attractions such as Washington Park, Cheesman Park, and the bustling Cherry Creek shopping area. It is also a short four block walk to the South Broadway entertainment area and just a few hundred feet from the Cherry Creek hike and bike trail. As if this wasn’t enough, there are a number of fine restaurants and bars along Sixth Avenue, just a few blocks to the north. Speaking of food, there is a Sprouts Market three blocks away and four Whole Foods Markets within a 5-10 minute drive. Two movie theaters featuring foreign and art films, the Esquire and the Mayan, are both within a 10-15 minute walk. The historic South Pearl Street shopping area, with its vibrant Sunday morning Farmer’s Market, is less than a 10 minute drive to the south.  Downtown Denver is also within a 10 minute drive, reached by going either north along Logan or northwest along Speer Boulevard. The neighborhood surrounding my building has a rich historical flavor arising from the presence of many historic homes from the 1890-1930 era, including a number displaying traditional Victorian features. In addition, the Baker District, starting just three blocks to the west, is unique in having so many carefully maintained Queen Anne style homes. In short, the Speer District where I live lies within the heart of the dynamic core urban area, a bit away from the hustle-bustle of downtown, but close to numerous amenities that make big-city living such a pleasure”. – Bob Wyatt

Lakewood, one of Denver’s largest suburbs to the West of the city, arguably has the best Rocky Mountain views.  Boundaries of Lakewood extend from just north of 6th avenue, south to Hwy 285, west to E470 and east to Sheridan Blvd. The city has over 80 maintained parks including Bear Creek Lake Park, outfitted with a large fishing lake, paved and dirt biking and hiking trails, picnic areas and a summer water-skiing concessionaire. Although Lakewood has never truly had a traditional downtown area, Belmar shopping district has everything one would enjoy from shopping, eateries and entertainment.  Options include 14 restaurants running from an English pub to Western buffalo. Entertainment options are plentiful as well, including a bowling alley and a 16-screen movie theater.
