With tank near-empty on inventory, brownstones heading to Golden Triangle

Downtown Denver’s Golden Triangle area south of the new Denver Art Museum is set for a game-changing arrival in 2014 – 17 trendy-looking brownstone townhomes, coming to W. 10th and Bannock Street, just over a half-mile from the 16th Street Mall Shuttle, and much closer to upscale dining and entertainment arriving nearby.

“The Golden Triangle IS downtown,” says Deviree Vallejo with Kentwood City Properties, who along with Liz Richards launched pre-sales on Ten10 Bannock this week. “We’re going to be priced around $300 per foot; there’s nowhere else where you’ll get that.” more »

$399,000 for townhome near Highlands? Edgy designs near Sloan’s Lake will have rooftop decks

At a time when low inventory in Highlands, LoDo and other downtown satellites is driving younger buyers out of the market, Kentwood City Properties agent Deviree Vallejo has an eye-opening release coming on line today: A pre-sale of 12 edgy townhomes that will be two blocks from Sloan’s Lake Park … a little over a mile from Restaurant Row in Highland Square.

Park Place XII will be fee-simple townhomes, Vallejo notes: 1,389 to 1,673 square feet of finished space, where you get a 2-car attached garage and own the ground below you (a much simpler association structure than condos have, with minimal HOA fees). The site at W. 17th Avenue and King Street, just east of where old St. Anthony’s Hospital has been torn down in a major redevelopment project, has so much going for it that it could become its own nucleus, rather than merely a neighborhood in Highlands’ shadow. more »

1957 home with a ‘rock-star’ view of downtown is open for bids

The Conservation Fund (ConservationFund.org) has saved 7 million acres of American open space over its 28 years, including vast Greenland Ranch on I-25 south of Castle Rock and other Front Range parcels; something that earned admiration of urban preservationist Helen ‘Prue’ Grant.

Grant, who passed away last summer just short of a hundred years old, left her house at S. Humboldt and Bayaud, along with a view across Denver Country Club’s fifth fairway to downtown, to the fund; and today Denver agent Sonja Leonard Leonard will give you a look – and a chance to bid on the property in support of the Fund’s work. more »

Good time to see Midtown’s master plan, minutes from downtown from $290s

With both of its builders’ models open and nine sales already on the books, this is the time to see Midtown, the new-urban master plan taking shape just ten minutes northwest of LoDo, off Pecos Street between U.S. 36 and I-76. “You’re not going to see homes like this anywhere else in Denver,” says Lindsay Esparza, who’ll join Felicia Smith in showing you Brookfield Homes’ three models.

A couple of years from now it will be the Light Rail and the amenities that lure buyers to Midtown; but right now it’s the single-family home value — starting with a model that delivers just under 2,200 square feet of finished space, basement and 2-car attached garage included, for $347,000. more »
