Referred to in the early 1800s as South Side or South Broadway, the Baker neighborhood is a mix of urban convenience and historic charm.
An eclectic historic and modern mix, the Baker neighborhood is one of the oldest in the Denver area, as well as one of the most up-and-coming locations for development.
Bounded by Sixth Avenue, Lincoln Street, Mississippi Avenue, and the South Platte River, the area was first plotted and developed in the 1870s. Due to recent urban renewal, the area has become a mix of Victorian-style homes, modern condos, and arts-and-craft dwellings.
With a cozy neighborhood feel, the Baker area is a located close enough for easy access to the urban heart of Denver, and the thriving Broadway Main Street development features a mix of galleries, causal and upscale dining, funky boutiques, bookstores, and antique shops.
The recently constructed luxury development Watermark features 90 luxury condominiums and brownstones at West 4th Avenue and Acoma Street features Denver’s only “infinity edge” swimming pool, a decadent roof-top pool that appears to disappear over the horizon.
The Baker Commons, located directly central Broadway corridor at 3rd Avenue, feature three stories of loft spaces above street level high-end commercial developments. Developed in 2001, the Baker Commons feature a mix of contemporary and vintage design that fits the Baker aesthetic ideally.
