Iconic cultural homes for Denver’s discerning residents
Few cities have seen a rebirth like that of Denver, Colorado. Old is new again. Suburban is now too far for many who need the pulse of a great city center early in the morning and well into the night. Convenience is the name of Denver urban. Museums, theaters, restaurants, and major sports teams are a moment’s walk or car service drive away. Luxury Denver homes for sale like The Museum Residences or those at the Spire give you access to: A) Nationally recognized cultural institutions; B) the major sports teams; and C) close proximity to some of the greatest outdoor mountain resorts America has to offer.
Denver’s Downtown Districts: Golden Triangle & The Performing Arts Center
Swatches of land once reserved for parking lots are now platforms for distinct residences. Visionary civic leaders along with able developers created The Golden Triangle and Downtown’s Performing Art Center neighborhoods. Today these areas are home to new rental “highrises” and established luxury residential buildings. With your preferred agent, distinct units at various price points can be viewed. Your short-list should include The Museum Residences, The Prado, The Belvedere, The Beauvallon, 2001 Lincoln, The Spire, The Residences at The Four Seasons and the Ritz-Carlton Residences. Each has qualities not found elsewhere in the city.
FOCUS: GOLDEN TRIANGLE – Museum Residences
In 2006, The Museum Residences struck an architectural cord when Studio Lebiskind completed the Denver Art Museum’s Hamilton Building and the Museum Residences. The architect’s designs would later be a foundation for the rebirth of New York City’s World Trade Center. The Denver buildings won awards and received recognition in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Metropolis Magazine to name a few.
Today the Museum neighborhood includes The ART hotel, the Civic Center Cultural Complex Parking Garage, The Museum Offices, and the related museums and restaurants including The CELL, The Kirkland, The Colorado History Museum (History Colorado) and Colorado’s foremost contribution to abstraction, The Clyfford Still.
From time to time select units are available at The Museum Residences. Denver’s city views and mountain views are distinct from 12th and Acoma. The Western and North facing units allow perspective of the contrast between The Art Museum’s facade and for those with a million dollar plus view, The State Capitol, “The Ponti” at the Denver Art Museum and The Michael Graves designed Denver Public Library. Along the Western side, balconies provide solitude as those below wander in the tree and sculpture-lined Plaza. Residents have access to the private rooftop garden and entertainment level. Again city views are truly unique. While your New Year’s party might need rooms at The ART hotel, your private catered event will have an unprecedented mountain and city backdrop.
