Denver Restaurant Week

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 2011 will be held for two weeks, from February 26 – March 11 and over 100 restaurants are participating.

This year I’m planning on trying Root Down 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.

Manhattan Phase Two Is Starting

The Manhattan Apartment building’s second phase will break ground any day now.  It’s located between 18th and 19th on Little Raven, backing to The Brownstones.  The construction fence is in place and benches and trash cans are being removed as we speak.  The second phase will have 134 new apartments and will have a new leasing center for both phases. It’s designed as a four and five story building on an underground parking garage. The completion is estimated for the summer of 2012. Rentals in Riverfront Park have been very successful and we look forward to this new addition to the neighborhood.

South Terminal Project

There have been some changes made to the South Terminal Project at DIA. This redevelopment includes a 500-room Westin hotel, a train station at the DIA terminal, a public plaza and a signature train bridge over Pena Boulevard. The plan has been pared down by $150 million to make the total for the project still about $500 million. The hotel and signature bridge have been designed by famous Spanish Architect Santiago Calatrava. The design will need to be modified, Calatrava told airport manager Kim Day “Don’t tell me what to cut. Tell me your budget.” Most likely the new design will eliminate one story of the hotel and remove the office space in the South Terminal Complex.

Mortgage Rates on the Rise

For the first time since April of last year, 30-year mortgages topped the 5% mark.  The fear of higher inflation rates made the 10-year Treasury notes spike and interest rates followed suit.  Although these historic lows were could never be maintained long term, many are concerned on how it will affect the housing market.  The difference between today’s rate and those of the absolute lows in November is not enough to price a buyer out of the market experts say.  Rates, even at 5% are still extremely low by historical standards.  The increase will hopefully encourage buyers to make decisions before rates climb even higher.

Commons Peak!

Working on Super Bowl Sunday isn’t usually the best day for business, but as I pulled into the parking lot this morning I saw something that made me smile.  A ton of Denver and Riverfront Park residents were out enjoying the snow and sledding down the hill at Commons Park aka Commons Peak.  There were all ages and a bunch of furry friends enjoying the the inches of snow we received last night.  It really made me think about what a wonderful community we have here in Riverfront Park.
