Looking for a Highlands home without the Highlands price tag? You might consider the increasingly popular neighborhood of Sunnyside. This neighborhood is adjacent to Denver's popular Highlands neighborhoods, and with its unique charm and increase in local businesses, this area is poised for a huge boom in housing and development.


Sunnyside is a 1.5-square-mile area bordered by Federal Boulevard to the west, Interstate 70 to the north, Inca Street to the east and West 38th Avenue to the south. Currently it's home to about 4,000 households and 10,000 people.


While the area’s reputation was once overshadowed by crime and low property values, Sunnyside has spent the last decade reviving itself, largely helped by the explosion of its neighbor to the south, the Highland neighborhood, as well as increased efforts from police and associations like Sunnyside United Neighbors Inc.


Fast forward to today, where property values are way up in the Sunnyside neighborhood. With median home prices around $407,000 in September, that’s an 8.5 percent jump the same month in 2015.


Residents are excited for the transportation developments headed to the area including the opening of the 41st & Fox station, part of the RTD’s newest rail line. The G Line will open this fall and will connect RTD's rail transit network to Wheat Ridge and Arvada. The 41st & Fox station will be located in the Globeville neighborhood near the easternmost border of Sunnyside, and experts agree that will likely encourage development nearby.


Sunnyside residents are also enjoying more dining and entertainment options as revitalization efforts bring in new coffee shops, breweries and more.
