Hey everyone

I will be moving to Denver from Atlanta, GA in mid to late November. My office is going to be in Downtown 17th and Curtis, so I am planning to look for an apartment in Downtown/LoDo Area.

The main reason being I hate driving in city traffic, and the time spent looking at the next car's taillights is never gonna come back :P . I like the city living but would love to keep my car with me for all the weekend trips. Anyhow with all the features (location, included covered parking, etc etc) I was looking for and within my budget, I have zeroed it down to Solera Apartments in lodo(Boston Lofts was a close contender)

Anyone living there currently or in the past, can you share your thoughts please?

I don't have specific advice on that apartment complex but wanted to give you a little perspective on traffic. It is relative. You are coming from Atlanta, we came from DC...
As frustrating as I'm sure it is for those who have been here years and have seen an increase, the traffic is nothing, especially downtown. If you're used to taking an hour to go 7 miles as I was, it will be a relief commuting here.

We are at commons park west and very happy here. It's close enough that everything is walkable, but not on top of lodo or ballpark. I'd recommend checking it and the surrounding apartments out.

I have a friend who lives next door at 2020 Lawrence (same developer) and is happy. There are tons of homeless just a few blocks north on Lawrence so if that concerns you I would look elsewhere, but the complex itself is very nice.
