Uptown Neighborhood

The Uptown neighborhood lies to the immediate east of Downtown Denver, and offers an eclectic mix of elements: restaurants, retail, historic mansions, new construction loft and condominium projects, hospital campuses, small office buildings, entertainment venues and neighborhood gathering places. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular neighborhoods in the city, due in large part to its ease of accessibility to Downtown.

The architectural styles and housing options in Uptown cross the spectrum from Denver Squares, Victorians, apartment complexes, bungalows, Queen Anne-style houses with second-story porches and much more. A majority of the neighborhood is single family detached houses with tree-lined boulevards that separate sidewalks from the street.

A longtime anchor in the Uptown neighborhood has been a complex of hospitals in the neighborhood’s core. St. Joseph’s, The Children’s Hospital, Presbyterian/St. Luke’s, and Kaiser Permanente are major presences and employers in the neighborhood, and many hospital supply companies, doctor’s offices and related businesses are located in nearby buildings. The hospitals employ nearly 10,000 workers.

Uptown’s southern boundary is Colfax Avenue, Denver’s traditional retail and services corridor that is undergoing a remarkable recovery. New retail, housing and office development is changing Colfax’s landscape, and the refurbished Fillmore Auditorium and Ogden Theater draw music fans for live performances. The numerous restaurants on 17th Street have resulted in a “Restaurant Row” destination attraction.
