Lodo Condos for Sale and Rent
LoDo as it’s often called is a walkable area that encompasses Commons Park and Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies. It borders Cherry Creek and Speer Boulevard, Larimer Street, and the Riverfront Park District. Zoning for the LoDo district protects its walkability and architecture allowing for mixed-use and historical preservation while protecting height restrictions to capture the Western views of the Front Range.
With Coors Field and a location in downtown Denver, the LoDo/Ballpark neighborhood offers an endless variety of more than 70 restaurants and nightlife. Wynkoop Brewing Company, founded by Governor John Hickenlooper (and partners) has been a staple of the LoDo neighborhood before it became a cool, trendy neighborhood. Today it’s joined by other breweries and gastropubs offering residents endless options to nosh. The Oxford Hotel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, still remains standing; its Cruise Room serves up libations in an art deco setting.
Commons Park has two distinct personalities. The park’s western edge is bordered by the South Platte River flowing with an opportunity to explore nature amidst the urban sprawl of downtown. Its grasses and wetlands invite you to escape the hustle and bustle. However, if you hunger for the hustle and bustle, the eastern side of Commons Park touches the heart of Urbana along Little Raven Street and offers seating to meet and greet your neighbors.
Houses in the LoDo/Ballpark neighborhood range from old industrial spaces converted into lofts to new townhomes. A one-bedroom unit starts in the $300-400,000 range and units along Little Raven Street and Riverfront Park can reach upwards of several million dollars. Most of the homes incorporate the charm of the exposed brick that remains from the industrial revolution with the modern amenities of today.
The LoDo District doesn’t just offer Coors Field; it also houses the Pepsi Center, the Children’s Museum of Denver, and Union Station. If you are looking for walkability and proximity to everything downtown has to offer the LoDo/Ballpark District is the place to be!
