Denver was rated one of the top cities for young professionals this year and it’s no surprise given the eclectic mix of neighborhoods our city offers. Dozens of distinctive urban neighborhoods help give Denver its diverse appeal.

One of the popular and culturally rich areas of metro Denver is the Lower Highland (LoHi) neighborhood. Located on the eastern boundary of the popular Highlands, LoHi residents range from young singles, urban professionals and growing families. Numerous art galleries, local retail shops and diverse and authentic dining offer LoHi residents a unique cultural experience.

The emerging Lohi neighborhood is growing in popularity at a rapid pace and is home to highly modern architecture as well as charming Victorian properties. The Highlands pedestrian bridge arcs a dramatic 70 feet above ground and connects the LoHi neighborhood to the sights, sounds and activities of downtown Denver. The accessibility of downtown from LoHi via the Highland’s Bridge has contributed greatly to the rapid growth in the neighborhood.

Another immensely popular and culturally diverse Denver neighborhood is Capitol Hill. Modern high rises, opulent mansions, and converted condominiums make Capitol Hill one of the most densely populated and active urban neighborhoods in Denver. Located just north of downtown Denver, Capitol Hill buildings possess an eclectic charm, with most construction dating back to the 1920s. The resurgence of Capitol Hill popularity began in the 1970s and the historical appeal of the neighborhood is evident today in its nine designated historical districts.

 Cheeseman Park is in close proximity and offers Capitol Hill residents expansive space for outdoor activity. The Colorado State Capitol building with its distinctive gold dome is centered in the neighborhood and gives the area its name. The pedestrian friendly neighborhood of Capitol Hill offers homes at a variety of price points from high rise urban living to stately Gothic mansions. Residents enjoy unlimited conveniences with ready access to downtown nightlife and Cherry Creek  shopping.
