Riverfront Park / Platte Street

Walkable and urban, with a strong sense of community. No neighborhood captures the spirit of downtown living like Riverfront Park and Platte Street. Set against Denver’s skyline, it’s unique in that it’s not just a set of apartments or condos. It’s a master-planned residential community smack dab in the heart of downtown, where residents feel a sense of belonging and everything is at your fingertips. Whether you’re meeting friends at Union Station for happy hour, commuting to work on foot or B-cycle, sauntering over to Coors Field for a Thursday afternoon game, or tossing a Frisbee for your dog in Commons Park, living here means you can enjoy all the conveniences of a vibrant downtown with the sense of place you can’t often find in the middle of the city.

An icon for the city.

The white steel mast of Millennium Bridge rising above the Denver skyline is just another tribute to the city’s pedestrian friendliness. Built to accommodate foot traffic between Union Station, the 16th Street Mall, and Riverfront Park, its unique architecture and vantage point over the city make it a popular place to stroll. At night, the cables are illuminated against a dark Denver sky, making it a striking icon in the heart of the city.
