In Denver’s hottest neighborhood, six new townhomes are close to restaurants


By Mark Samuelson

You can’t find a hotter neighborhood now than the Berkeley area north of Highlands. When I met Kentwood broker/expert Deviree Vallejo there to preview six new townhomes you’ll tour north of 44th & Tennyson Street, she was already talking with two developers working on projects across the street, and waved to a third driving by.

Berkeley neighborhood along Tennyson Street in Denver.

“You could swing a dead cat from here and hit ten developers,” Vallejo quipped. “People don’t realize what Tennyson has; it’s such a thriving area,” she added as we grabbed a cup at Tenn Street Coffee & Books at 44th, where a fourth developer was sipping at a table nearby.

Between W. 38th near the old Elitch Garden site and 45th north of her project, she noted, there are a dozen restaurants, plus galleries, bakeries and other shopping along Tennyson — already with the higher-density zoning that’s perfect for projects like her Berkeley Park Townhomes. All six units come with 2-car attached garages and huge rooftop decks that have pretty-much unobstructed views of the mountains, across the lower-zoned streets to the west.

Meanwhile, Berkeley Park is two blocks north with lake, city pool and off-leash dog area; and beyond is I-70, with good commuter access to downtown or points west via onramps at Sheridan or Lowell. “And this is still only a mile from Highland Square,” Vallejo said. That area in “West Highlands” where her own home is, and the burgeoning LoHi district between Highlands and LoDo, have a highest recognition factor for their lustrous array of highly regarded dining. But Berkeley, she adds, has lower prices – around $300/square foot as opposed to $375 for comparable product in LoHi.

You’ll see four units remaining from $479,000, all contemporary, with master plus second bedroom configured en-suite with private bath. Vallejo can also steer you toward other opportunities in the simmering Northwest area spanning Berkeley, east to Sunnyside, south to Sloan’s Lake, where she has another townhome project with units left from $399,000. To see Berkeley Park Townhomes take W. 38th west from Lowell eight blocks to Tennyson and turn north up Tennyson, just past 44th.
