Denver Area Resources
Denver Chamber Information
The following link contains useful information on Denver and the surrounding areas:
Denver offers a perfect blend of urban sophistication, outdoor recreation and incredible 4-season weather. With over 300 days of sunshine per year (a fact that many locals still try to keep secret), it’s easy to see why people fall in love with Denver the first time they visit. Denver real estate is also considered a tremendous value when compared with other major metro areas (search for Denver properties). The Denver region also offers a diverse array of industries that keep the economy vibrant and healthy.
Denver features some of the nations most highly sought-after real estate (here are various Denver tools and valuation maps), including areas such as:
Cherry Creek North
Cherry Creek North is Denver’s premier shopping and dining neighborhood, featuring >320 independently owned shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants and spas. This is the place to go for custom-embroidered dog collars and pet-spas for Fido. And don’t forget the Atomic Wings at the Cherry Cricket. The 22-mile Cherry Creek Bike Path connects to downtown and beyond, creating the perfect route for a morning run or an afternoon ride.
Denver Tech Center
Look just to the south of downtown, and you’ll see the ‘other’ area that has skyscrapers (and plenty of cranes building new ones) sprawling through the skyline. This is the Denver Tech Center (DTC). DTC is home to many of Colorado’s most valued mid and large-size companies, and is where ‘everybody else’ works [who is not downtown]. DTC is surrounded by excellent neighborhoods (including Greenwood Village and Cherry Hills), and the latest in shopping end entertainment, including Park Meadows Mall and Southwest Plaza.
Cherry Creek Vista
The next ‘emerging’ area, this enclave of mid-to-high end homes and parks is located directly in the middle of the Denver Tech Center off of I-25 and I-225, is situated walking distance to 3 new light rail stations and is surrounded by Cherry Creek State Park and Cherry Creek Reservoir. The area features many of the cities newest mixed-use urban developments and hottest restaurants (including Denver’s favorite steakhouse, Del Frisco’s). All Echo Summit property management customers will be treated to a free cigar and drink in Del Frisco’s luxurious cigar lounge, upon request.
Bordered by W 38th Ave., W. 32nd Ave, Zuni St. and Federal Blvd, Highlands area are signature Denver properties that possess ‘charming’ and ‘quaint’ elements that attract urban professionals and young families. You will see many pink drinks, drinks with umbrellas and open-face canapés at the surrounding-area’s local bistros and eateries, most of which feature outdoor patios where you can see and be seen. Highlands is currently undergoing a housing boom with the construction of a number of new houses and condos in a multitude of architectural styles. It also features 6 parks with baseball diamonds, basketball courts, flower beds and picnic benches complement the area small neighborhood ambiance.

While not a destination in its own right, Aurora presents the Denver real estate investor with a variety of high-ROI investment opportunities. Aurora is undergoing a significant revival, and we expect this area to expand and improve in the coming years. Echo Summit has significant experience investing and managing properties in the Aurora area.
Major Denver Attractions
Formerly Mile High Stadium, construction on the new stadium began in August 1999. Fans attending games at Mile High Stadium could watch the new stadium being constructed because it was built adjacent to it. Invesco Funds purchased the naming rights to the stadium. The Denver Broncos first game at Invesco Field at Mile High was on September 10, 2001. Over 76,000 seats are located throughout the stadium. Incorporating part of the team name, the main three tier grandstand is in the shape of a horseshoe. The lower grandstand circles the entire field. Above the seats in the south endzone is the main video/scoreboard. Atop the scoreboard is a replica of a bronco named "Bucky".
The 76-acre ballpark stands at 20th and Blake streets in Denver's lower downtown ("LoDo") district. Fans sitting in the first-base and right-field areas are treated to a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains. Every year since it opened in 1995, Coors has been a league leader in attendance. On a clear Saturday night when the temperature is 72 degrees and 23 percent humidity, there isn't a better place on Earth.
Granite, marble and ceramic tiles abound at the facility, both underfoot and on walls. There are grand entryways, extra wide concourses, sweeping stairways, restaurants and works of art. It's also loaded with high tech gadgetry - an eight sided scoreboard, huge Sony screens for showing replays, and computers at many of the upscale seats from which fans can order food and have it brought to them.
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is the Rocky Mountain region’s leading resource for informal science education. A variety of exhibitions, programs, and activities help Museum visitors experience the natural wonders of Colorado, Earth, and the universe.
Continuing a legacy of bold architecture, the DAM commissioned architect Daniel Libeskind to design an expansion that would accommodate the museum’s growing collections and programs. The 146,000-square-foot Hamilton Building opened to the public October 7, 2006. The Hamilton Building's design recalls the peaks of the Rocky Mountains and geometric rock crystals found in the foothills near Denver. "I was inspired by the light and the geology of the Rockies, but most of all by the wide-open faces of the people of Denver," says Libeskind. The building is covered in 9,000 titanium panels that reflect the Colorado sunshine.
