South of Downtown
Part of the
original Town of South Denver, the Platt Park neighborhood ranges from Downing Street to
South Broadway Street and from Mississippi Avenue to Evans Avenue. James Fleming, the
town's only mayor, built his historic estate in 1882 at 1510 South Grant Street. The
house, with its smooth stone walls and rotundas, was sold by Fleming in 1891 and served as
the town hall, jail and library until annexed by the City of Denver in 1894. The
neighborhood, just west of the University of Denver's campus, is a popular location for
students and local businesses.
Quiet streets with mature
trees and craftsman architecture abound south and west of I-25. Nearbye, the "Old
South Pearl" business district where residents may walk to restaurants and bars
instead of driving to nearby Cherry Creek and South Gaylord. Prices are much the same as
Washington Park ($400's and Up) except a few wood frame bungalows may be under $260,000.
