Artist Pat Pendleton painted alluring Southwestern canvases down in Taos, N.M….until three years ago when on a lark, she visited Belmar, the new-urban community in Lakewood. This was a place where she could paint, have her own gallery, shop and dine, and live very comfortably. “It had a sense of vitality,” she says now. “I told myself, ‘this could work.’”
Kentwood City Properties Kevin Garrett shows a 2-bedroom penthouse overlooking Belmar.
Today you can tour a spring open house with cupcakes and lemonade at Plaza Residences, the luxury flats where Pendleton bought…steps from Belmar’s outdoor cafes, restaurants, coffee places and 16-screen theater…and from Belmar’s ‘gallery row’ where she shows her work. Kevin Garrett and his team have sold four of these in the past two months.
