One of the draws of downtown living is easy access to all the exciting things Denver has to offer. Imagine the convenience of walking out your front door and having the whole city at your fingertips – especially in a city as walkable as Denver.
According to “Foot Traffic Ahead”, a report released by George WashingtonUniversity’s Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis, Denver is the 9th most walkable city in the country. And what’s more, the city is taking even more steps to become more walkable!
Denver aspires to increase its walkability rating by focusing on land use and transportation, and will work toward this goal through its Denveright planning process that is kicking off right now.
Denverright is a community-driven planning process that challenges Denver residents to shape how the city evolves in four key areas: land use, mobility, parks and recreational resources.
The city also is updating Blueprint Denver, the land and transportation guideline plan for growth in the city. The update of Blueprint Denver will look at land use options to support walkable places and the new Denver Moves: Pedestrian and Trails plan will identify needed infrastructure investments to make complete pedestrian connections.
New York City was ranked No. 1, followed by Washington, D.C. and Boston in the national analysis. Click through to see the full report and rankings!

"My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Andy for our first home purchase. The experience we had was nothing short of amazing. At the time of our house hunt it was a sellers market with multiple offers in on homes and homes closing in under 1 week on the market regularly. Even when Andy was out of town on business he made sure one of his extremely knowledgeable colleagues was able to show us properties for the weekend. After a fairly quick search we decided on a home and with Andy's guidance our first offer was accepted and after the appraisal he was able to negotiate our price down to save us some extra money. I will definitely be recommending Andy to my family and friends, he did so much to take all of the stress out of the process for us. Thanks Andy!!"
