Cushman & Wakefield: ‘Denver is just freaking hip’

According to Cushman & Wakefield’s Cool Streets 2019 Report, Denver – and not just River North and Lower Downtown – is an “18-hour Cool Street City.” “Cool Streets” are urban neighborhoods with live-work-play environments rich in creative class workers, with great demographics - and where retail generally is thriving. Since Cushman & Wakefield published its first report in 2016, “Cool Streets” have continued to emerge in 24-hour cites like Boston, Chicago and San Francisco. “But now we are seeing the trend accelerate in places such as Boise, Charlotte, Denver, Nashville, Portland, Salt Lake City, Tampa and other metros global investors used to overlook,” the report said. “Affordable housing and employment are driving that acceleration.”
