Statistically speaking, Denver’s economy is on fire. Unemployment has more than halved in the past year, GDP is expected to grow 73% faster in 2022 than the national figure and inflation — even more so than in the rest of the country — is on a tear.
And then there are the intangibles: well-heeled crowds waltzing through the ritzy Cherry Creek shopping district, impossible-to-get reservations at freshly anointed hotspots and queues of gleaming SUVs clogging Interstate 70 en route to the mountains for weekend jaunts.
Yet perhaps nothing is more emblematic of a city transformed by wealth, both homegrown and transplanted, than a 22-year-old penthouse loft for sale overlooking Coors Field. With its blonde wood flooring, black granite counters and corner jetted tub, the 7,204 square-foot (669-square-meter) property evokes a 2000s vibe.
