Denver Ranks 15th Worst in Traffic

In a recent article in the Denver Business Journal, Denver was ranked the 15th worst cities for traffic.  This might not seem like good news but I disagree.  Riverfront Park is centrally located in Downtown Denver and is across the street from the soon-to-be hub of transportation.  Union Station over the next ten years will bring more public transportation into the city and make it possible for Denver residents to not have to own a car.  For people that live in Chicago, New York or Boston living without a car is easy and soon Denver will be one of those cities.  Even though Denver being ranked one of the worst cities for traffic isn’t the best, being able to live somewhere that you can walk or take public transportation everywhere is!   What would you do with an extra hour a day if you didn’t have to commute and sit in traffic?

Check out the listings in Glass House


Glass House has always been a popular building and now it’s easier than ever to keep updated on the latest listings. Whether you are a current homeowner wanting to know what property values are doing, someone looking to buy or a homeowner with a current listing, bookmark glasshouse.mydenverloft.com and it will pull up all the active Glass House residences. I’m in the process of getting the rest of the buildings in the neighborhood to work the same way.

Riverfront Park Social Club


The Riverfront Park Social Club is gearing up for some great events this spring. The club is for Riverfront Park homeowners and is sponsored by East West Partners and East West Urban Management. The event I’m most excited about is our third annual ski trip. The last two years have been on the wonderful Ski Train but with the train not making trips to Winter Park this year, we have rented some charter busses to get our residents to the slopes! Hopefully, next year all the contracts will be figured out with Amtrak and the Ski Train so they can resume a much beloved Denver tradition. The busses are set for March 20th and we are working on a fabulous after party too. Along with the ski trip, the Riverfront Park Social Club is planning a few Nuggets games at discounted prices, a social at Fado Irish Pub and Opening Day for the Rockies. Being a homeowner in Riverfront Park sure does have its advantages!

Union Station is Starting…

The final hurdle was crossed before construction can start on the Union Station redevelopment with a $304 million federal loan. This is great news. After after more than six years, this project will finally become a reality. Phil Gogoff the Federal Transit Administration Chief also announced two $40 million grants to RTD. These grants will add two additional lines to the light rail station, one going to Wheat Ridge and the other going to DIA. The significance of the grants show the federal governments intent to completely fund these two lines. Construction could even start this year. All of the funding is in place and we are ready to start the four year project to bring Amtrak rails, commuter rails, light rails and commuter busses to the station.

Glass House Perfection

Glass House #816, located at 1700 Bassett Street, is a stunning two-bedroom with incredible views of Commons Park and the Rocky Mountains.  This residence features one of only 20 balconies in the building that allow patio furniture and are large enough to really use.  Enjoy warm summer evenings eating dinner and watching the sunset from your balcony.  American cherry hardwood floors, cherry cabinetry, slab granite counters, stainless steel appliances and two parking spaces add to this home’s appeal.  Call me to see for yourself how great this residence truly is at (303) 618-3622.

Mmmm…Mmmm…Denver

It’s that time of year again that the best restaurants in Denver make a special menu to honor the mile high city.  For only $52.80 for two people or 28.40 for one you can get a delicious dinner at one of Denver’s best eateries.  Denver Restaurant Week 2010 will be held for two weeks, from February 20 – March 5 and over 100 restaurants are participating.

Last year a group of us went to Elways, the food was great and the people watching was even better.  This year I’m planning on trying Mizuna for something new and going to one of my favoites Zengo.  I know that I’m biased with it being located in Riverfront, but it never dissapoints!  Click here to make your reservation.
