When RiNo emerged northeast of downtown in the middle of the last decade, urban homebuyers saw a neighborhood with LoDo’s allure of trendy bars and dining and a similar historic narrative, at prices well below those in Lower Downtown. Now top-selling Kentwood City agent Dee Chirafisi says that picture is much the same, as the two downtown areas reemerge following the pandemic; and she has a loft-townhouse to show you (by appointment) five blocks northeast of the ballpark that illustrates the point.
At 2528 Walnut Street, Chirafisi has one of two side-by-side units created in 2014 from a historic warehouse, by a developer/architect that kept one for himself. The seller on Unit 102 picked it four years ago as an unusually accommodating venue for an art collection, in funky surroundings that now have a lot more people walking about.
“RiNo is coming back,” says Chirafisi, who knew things were headed in the right direction when a buyer of hers lost out on a listing eight blocks northeast of here at FireClay Lofts, that sold well over list.
This one, meanwhile, is wrapped in attractions that are reopening, including Nocturne jazz club, Barcelona Wine Bar, and Denver Central Market. The setting is two blocks from where RiNo streets are still closed off to traffic between 26th and 28th, that allowed RiNo’s dining scene to stay alive during the shutdown. You’ll see four bedrooms and four baths in a 2,458-foot plan with a 2-car attached garage, at $1.7 million. “You get a lot more for your money than in LoDo,” Chirafisi adds.
