Denver’s Ballpark District neighborhood is located north, east, and southeast of Coors Field, where the Colorado Rockies play baseball. It is one of Denver’s most vibrant and walkable neighborhoods, with a mix of bars, restaurants, brew pubs, clubs, galleries, trendy offices, and retail. The Ballpark District in Downtown Denver also has a mix of real estate originating from its history of older warehouses and industrial buildings that have been renovated into offices, lofts, and retail space. Many new townhomes, condos, and luxury apartment complexes have transformed the area as well, some of which give a nod to Denver’s past by their names and/or use of brick. If you live or work in the Ballpark District and want to learn more, connect, or contribute towards its vibrancy, please visit the Ballpark Collective.
The origin of today’s Ballpark District originated with the construction of Coors Field in the 1990s, which launched LoDo (Lower Downtown, southwest of 20th & Blake) into what was then Downtown Denver’s hottest spot for nightlife and became the foundation for subsequent evolutions of downtown from LoHi to Union Station to RiNo. The Ballpark District is not quiet or quaint, rather loud, fun, energetic, full of activity, and has buildings of a larger scale than most parts of Denver. If you do not end up living in the Ballpark District, I sure hope you enjoy what it has to offer when the time is right. It is very much a core part of the Denver experience.
