LoDo and the Central Platte Valley, Old and New
The Lower Downtown neighborhood, or LoDo, is located directly north of the CBD. The neighborhood contains Denver's largest collection of early 1900's warehouse buildings, many of which have been converted to lofts and retail space in the 15 years. Approximately 1,150 residential units currently exist in the neighborhood, with over 2,400 residents. The Central Platte Valley (CPV)is located north of LoDo on former rail yards. This new community will ultimately contain over 5,000 residential units, as well as office and retail space. The centerpieces of the neighborhood are the 25 acre Commons Park and the transit hub at Union Station. Below are the projects planned, under construction, or completed since 2008 within the area (Click on the thumbnails for larger pics).
