Neighborhood of the week – Golden Triangle

If you have ever found yourself walking around the Civic Center Park or enjoying a day at the Denver Art Museum or taking photos of our state capitol building, then you have already been in the neighborhood I am highlighting this week. Called the ‘Golden Triangle’ this neighborhood boards Colfax to the north, Broadway to the east and Speer Boulevard with the Cherry Creek Trail to the southwest. One of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods, the Golden Triangle isn’t a very large space; it shouldn’t take anyone more then a half an hour to walk the entire length of it. But it is a place where you will see all walks of life from businessmen to artsy folks to out-of-towners. The neighborhood is known for its energetic mixture of arts, culture and Colorado history. Here you can visit the Denver Art Museum, the Clifford Still Museum, the History Colorado Center, the Denver Central Library, the United States Mint and of course, the Colorado State Capitol with its shining gold top.

 

Civic Center Park plays a large roll in hosting many city events over the course of the year. You can head there for a giant Cinco De Mayo celebration, Pridefest, Civic Center Eats (happens regularly, a bunch of food trucks come to serve lunch in the park) and the Westword Music showcase along with many other great events.

 

In regards to real estate, the Golden Triangle offers a wide selection of homes from luxury condominiums to new loft developments to charming Victorian homes. Many people like to live in this area if they work downtown but also for the vibe and culture of the area. With easy access to downtown and the Cherry Creek path, the Golden Triangle can offer people that feeling of living in the heart of the city while also giving them a quick way out of the city.

 

I always encourage my clients to go spend time in the neighborhood they are thinking of buying in because it helps them get a sense for what is in store if they purchase there. If you are thinking that the Golden Triangle neighborhood might be a spot you are looking to move to, I recommend hitting up some of the following for a day adventure:

City O’City – for those vegetarians out there, might be one of the best in Denver
