Lincoln Park Homes for Sale
Lincoln Park Denver Real Estate
Prospectors looking for gold, in the 1850’s, settled Lincoln Park real estate district, one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods.
Resting just south of today's Auraria Higher Education Center campus, and southwest of downtown, the area is bounded by 6th Avenue on the south, and West Colfax Avenue, and Speer Boulevard on the east, and the South Platte River. Denver’s light rail line runs north-south through the Lincoln Park District, and includes a station located at 10th Avenue and Osage Street, giving residents easy access to public transportation and Downtown Denver. Often refered to as “The West Side”, Lincoln Park real estate district is well known for its primary retail and commercial corridor: Santa Fe Drive.
Homes in Lincoln Park real estate date from the turn of the century, and its broad range of single family detached houses, from a variety of architectural styles, make this an attractive center city neighborhood. Two-story brick Victorians, row houses, duplexes, brick bungalows and one-story stucco houses all flavor the real estate character here. More than a small amount of residential redevelopment has taken place in Lincoln Park, including the 1,050-unit Parkway Center apartment and condominium complex at 12th Avenue and Galapagos Street. Lincoln Park is a quiet, progressive neighborhood, where residential real estate is priced modestly.
Sante Fe Drive is the commercial and retail center of Lincoln Park real estate. This busy urban corridor has seen its share of investment in recent years, as offices, shops, restaurants and banks have renovated building facades, and several historic buildings have been completely refurbished. New trees, bike racks and other amenities have also helped enhance the pedestrian experience. Business owners and community leaders in the Lincoln Park real estate district have work closely with the City to protect the character and the historic structures in this growing neighborhood.
