Thanks to city zoning laws that restrict developers from plopping down high-rise apartment buildings or endless strips of retail, Park Hill has always maintained a strong residential vibe, which has long been a primary draw for buyers interested in this northeast Denver ’hood. Then there’s the school: Much of the neighborhood feeds into East High School, a highly sought-after choice in the Denver Public Schools system. All of which has made Park Hill a paradise for families over the past decade. What’s more, new home construction in Park Hill has surpassed pre-2009 activity. You’re seeing scrapes that never occurred even before the crash. The progression of retail along East Colfax—with additions such as Marczyk Fine Foods—has helped and, anecdotally at least, led to construction that’s pushing farther north toward still-transitioning pockets of Park Hill.
What you get for your money: There’s a high end in Park Hill that you’ll rarely see in nearby areas such as City Park or Stapleton: Last year, the most expensive sale in Park Hill topped $1.5 million. Homes, however, are generally more affordable the farther north you go, with Park Hill’s sweet spot being in the $300,000 to $500,000 range. When I think of Park Hill, I think of a modest but nice bungalow. Pony up more than $450,000, and you might get a remodeled, “tricked out” version—an updated, open kitchen, a new master bath—which will be about 20 to 30 percent more expensive per square foot than what you’ll find farther east in Stapleton.
