My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Platt Park

Pearl Street 4Platt Park is a large and very popular neighborhood centrally located between Downtown and the Denver Tech Center areas. Platt Park’s boundaries are Broadway on the west, I-25 to the north, Downing to the east, and Evans on the south. The area consists of tree-lined streets that showcase a variety of homes, from the late 1800’s original build bungalows to new contemporary single family homes, condos and apartments.  While its central location, easy access to I-25 and two light rail stations make it very easy to get anywhere in Denver within minutes, the neighborhood’s popularity is also driven by its easy walk-ability, access to parks and the ever popular South Pearl Street district, with its numerous restaurants, boutiques and eclectic shops. With one of Denver’s largest urban in-fill projects underway on the northwest corner of the neighborhood, in the old Gate’s factory site, the area’s appeal is expected to just continue to grow as new shopping, dining and recreation options are added.
