With its close proximity to downtown and tight-knit community feel, the northwest neighborhood of Berkeley has charms that are hard to resist.
Neighboring West Highland and Regis, Berkeley is bordered by Interstate 70 to the north, Federal Boulevard to the west, West 38th Avenue to the south and Sheridan Boulevard to the west. About 8,500 residents call this popular neighborhood “home.”
One of the most popular attractions in this area is the Tennyson Street Cultural District, a vibrant corridor boasting more than 65 businesses, from trendy art galleries and boutiques to salons, studios, flower shops, bars/restaurants, and more.
Beyond the Tennyson Street Cultural District, Berkeley has a fair amount of apartment construction; however, its density prevents the neighborhood from having any more major housing developments.
