4 months now living here , we love it here , thank youFrances M. on Nov 1, 2020
Love the location but the noise from neighboring apartments and their water pipes is LOUD. Lots of people do not pick up dog poop. DIsgusting! I end up picking up about 4 other piles every time my dog goes. Poop stations are around - not enough poop bags, I buy my own. I end up always having to park quite far away from my building and having to walk up/down stairs. Not good in the winter.

If you plan to work in the Denver Tech Center (DTC)/Greenwood Village, it’s just a short drive away, with commute times averaging out at around 25 to 30 minutes. However, a private vehicle is desirable — though not completely necessary — as public transport options require a transfer.

As well as providing easy access to the freeway itself, both RTD stations are located nearby, one at Aspen Grove, and one in downtown.
Those with private vehicles are advised to take a refresher course in winter driving before the first snowstorms hit, especially if you’ve never driven in snow and ice before.
