LoDo, or the lower downtown part of Denver, is the oldest part of the city, established in 1858 after gold was discovered in the South Platte River. With the addition of the railway spur from Cheyenne, Wyoming, and the building of Union Station, the core of Denver became a bustling, thriving boom town—until the ascendance of car and airplane transport caused the gradual abandonment of the railroad and the decline of lower downtown Denver.
Then in 1988, the renaissance began with the creation of the Lower Downtown Historic District. “By the time Coors Field opened on the edge of the LoDo Historic District in 1995, the area had begun to revitalize itself into a new, hip neighborhood filled with clubs, restaurants, art galleries, stores, bars, and other businesses. . . . New residential development came to LoDo, transforming old warehouses into pricey new lofts.”
And that’s where we are today: LoDo is a unique creation of history, innovation, and ecology. Numerous restaurants in the area include fine dining at Epernay Lounge and casual Tex-Mex at Benny’s. There’s so much to do in LoDo alone, we couldn’t cover it all in a week. And there’s shopping to your heart’s content at the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall and Larimer Square.
As great as the economic revitalization of the area has been, the lofts are what have defined the appeal of lower downtown Denver. With the combination of luxury and urban accessibility, LoDo luxury lofts for sale are highly in demand.
