Default Apartments Near Light Rail

Hello!

I am a 24 y/o single female moving to Denver for a job in the next month. I am already excited about moving to the area.

I want to live as close to the light rail as possible, and perhaps also in an area with other young professionals.

Does anyone know of any specific apartment complexes near any of the light rail stations? I already know of "Alexan City Center" and "Amli" but wonder if there are others.

Thanks for the help!!!

Take a look at 'The District' at I-25 and Hampden Ave. I have a friend who lives there and seems to enjoy it. He works in the tech center but wanted to be closer to downtown. It's pricey, so beware, but it's very close to the rail and it seems like a lot of young professionals (or young people who happen to be able to afford the rent --- $~1200 for a 1br) live there.

It also has a Wahoo's, Jimmy John's, and a few other places to eat on the ground floor of the building that is closest to Hampden Avenue and the complex itself is close to coffee, groceries, other restaurants, etc.

If your job is going to be downtown, the bus system is actually pretty good, too, so you might find a more affordable apartment that might not be right at a rail station, but still in an area that has decent RTD service. I'm a daily 83L rider and even though I wasn't initially excited about the bus, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise.. not nearly as inconvenient as I thought it would be and I've saved so much money now that the price of gas is high.

Hope this helps!

I wish there was a big thread for this topic. I'm exactly the same age and in the same situation and I'm going nuts trying to find a decent place!

A lot of places charge more for rent because they are near the light rail. I've seen a couple hundred dollars difference just a few miles away from the stations.

There are a lot of complexes in the DU area which is near a light rail station. I don't know the names of them, though. You'd have to go down there and look around.

The Savoy is located at the Dayton station and The Aventine is located at the Nine Mile station. Both are on the H Line and very affordable. $640/1BD, $980/2BD. I live near the Dayton station in a house and pass by the Savoy everyday and they look really nice. Some are townhouses, others are more traditional apartments. Located directly next to a Walmart and at the crossroads of Hampden and Havana both streets have lots to offer like Lowes, Whole Foods, King Soopers, Chipotle, 24 Hour Fitness, etc.

Cierra Crest is located near the Belleview light rail station, right in the heart of the Denver Tech Center.

Try craigslist or Westword. Also DU is near Englewood and has an off campus housing website Off Campus Housing at the University of Denver (http://www.du.edu/och/ - broken link)
