News > Denver Condos Near the Light Rail

published on 2013-10-16

While the light rail system has been in place in Denver for a while, the recent upgrades to the mass transit system make getting around the Denver metropolitan area a whole lot easier. The convenience and ease of getting to and from the important places and events in your daily life provide a compelling reason to make your home in a Downtown Denver condo and ditch your car, or at least park it most of the time. There are too many condos and lofts near light rail stops to mention, so we’ve highlighted a few here.

Whether your commute is just a few blocks or even to the Denver Tech Center, there is a light rail route for you.  The six different rail lines cover the metro area from Golden on the West side down to Littleton and County Line in the South.

There are 46 stations for your convenience that can take you out of the brutal traffic grind and provide an easier way to experience all that the city of Denver has to offer.  If it’s culture that you crave, there are stops located at the theater district and convention center. For the sports aficionados, the stations at both Sports Authority Field at Mile High and the Pepsi Center will certainly make life easier on game day.  Those interested in shopping  can conveniently grab the light rail to the Park Meadows Mall as well.

The IceHouse Lofts is a good example of urban living near the light rail if you want to ditch your car.  This brick building was built in 1895, and is located on 18th and Wynkoop Street, just south of Coors Field.  The brand new Union Station light rail stop is only a few blocks away from this former Beatrice Foods Cold Storage Warehouse.  These sought after homes feature exposed brick walls, original arch windows, heavy timber and exposed ductwork.  The condos do include parking spots, but you may prefer to park your car and enjoy the convenient light rail.

Situated in the colorful RiNo Arts District, Silver Square Lofts are located between 3309 and 3377 Blake Street. These 57 lofts were originally three different industrial businesses, and then later became an artist community after the factories closed.  A 50-foot crane still stands on-site that was used to move parts of battleships from the factory to the trains. It is not visible from Blake Street however, and is a well-kept secret to those passing by. Units range from 700 to 3500 square feet and are all distinctly unique.  The new light rail station at 38th and Blake will make living in these cool artsy condos super convenient for those that want an easy commute into downtown or wherever else their mood seems to take them.

If you want to live close to a happening area with the ability to travel on any line, take a look at some of the lofts near Union Station.

When choosing to live in a Denver condo near the light rail system, you are gaining access to a plethora of shops, restaurants and businesses that your suburban friends will certainly envy.
