This community in northwest Denver runs from 38th Avenue North to Interstate 70 and from Federal Boulevard east to Inca Street.But this sunny-sounding area wasn't always set to be a hidden gem on the Denver landscape. It's amazing to think that during the recession of the late 1980s, few places were hit harder than the Sunnyside neighborhood. Property values fell as quickly as Denver residents' general confidence in the area.
General listing price of Sunnyside Homes Offered:
High $100,000's to $800,000's
Thanks to the major growth of the bordering neighborhood of Highland and Sunnyside's neighborhood association (affectionately called SUNI), the area is now a thriving and a place many call home in Denver, CO. SUNI has been instrumental in re-building Sunnyside, starting with renovating area parks, developing business zones and connecting residents through a variety of events and social functions. SUNI remains an agent for change.
The gentle and thoughtful speed of growth in Sunnyside has allowed the downtown core to blossom while remaining pedestrian-friendly. A much talked about commuter rail station at 41st Ave. and Fox Street is on the wya. Technically, it lands in the Globeville neighborhood, but a pedestrian bridge will make it accessible to Sunnysiders. An addition to the existing Gold Line, the station will help connect Wheat Ridge with Union Station.
Sunnyside is truly mosaic of historic charm and modernism, suburban safety, and urban convenience. Besides some small community-centric businesses, like coffee shops, craft breweries, and high-end restaurants, the area is zoned predominantly for two-story buildings and single-family homes. You can expect for Sunnyside to remain family-friendly for a very long time.
