Artistic Neighborhoods

These neighborhoods are defined by the variety of experiences that the residents enjoy on a daily basis. That could mean breweries, theatre, parks, and a diversity of residents.  Architecture is often interesting and changing, with older styles mixed with contemporary new homes. 

Santa Fe Arts District

Snuggled onto the southwest side of downtown Denver, this compact area is known for cultural diversity and, of course, an artsy vibe. Galleries dominate Santa Fe, with Mexican, Ethiopian and other ethnic eateries tucked in between. The housing here is dominated by smaller, older homes and duplexes, but many of these have been spectacularly updated. Santa Fe Arts District offers one of the more affordable single-family options adjacent to downtown.

Average Rental Rates
Single Family Homes $2000 - $3200
Condos $1200 - $2500

Five Points / Curtis Park

Originally built to house the richest families in Denver in the late 1800s, this area became a cultural hub for Denver’s African American community throughout the 20th century. Today, the area is quite diverse, with trendy music venues, breweries and award-winning restaurants lining Welton Street. In Five Points and Curtis Park, original Victorian-style houses are flanked by brand-new modern condo buildings. Many of the older homes have been updated, but some are still ready for a modern makeover.

RiNo & Taxi Districts

RiNo (Riverfront North) and the adjacent Taxi District is a quickly developing neighborhood with an artistic flair.

Industrial in spirit and execution, this is a hot, trendy neighborhood that offers quick access to I-70 and Downtown Denver.

Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill is often where new, young transplants to Denver land. The older, charming apartment buildings that dominate housing here attract renters who value urban living more than extensive amenities. Along with the many local shops, breweries and restaurants that line eclectic Colfax Avenue, you’ll also find pockets of dining and nightlife options throughout Capitol Hill, and music venues and bars create a lively scene nearly every night of the week.

Condos $1500 - $2800
