“LoDo” which is the shortened name of “Lower Downtown” is full of history and charm. Once nearly abandoned, the LoDo Historic District was formed in 1988 in order to stop demolition of old buildings in the area. More than 100 buildings are not deemed historic and zoning in the area restricts building heights to maintain the charming allure.
LoDo is now home to Coors Field, Larimer Square and Union Station. Union Station and the surrounding area is undergoing a major overhaul to include a public transportation hub, hotels, office buildings, restaurants, retail and housing. Old warehouses converted into lofts, innovative new buildings and some of the best retail and restaurants on the Front Range make LoDo an attractive place to live and play for young and older residents alike. The neighborhood is filled with coffee shops, museums, art galleries with easy walking access to light rail and every major league sporting event Denver has to offer.
