Denver, Colorado has quickly become one of the most popular cities for new graduates and seasoned professionals looking for the best of the city and mountain life. If you are planning a move to the mile high city in 2014, you’re probably going to be on the hunt for a new apartment. One downfall from Denver’s growing popularity is the competitive rental market in the city proper. Popular listing sites for apartments continue to be helpful; however, if you don’t act fast, listings are often rented within a few days. Here are some of the best rental properties in Denver.
These ultra-chic, environmentally friendly apartments are scattered through Capitol Hill, Uptown and City Park West. There are 15 properties in total and from the variety they offer, you’re sure to find something to fit your needs. Each property is uniquely designed and decorated with products made from sustainable or recycled materials. Although many of their units are smaller in size (similar to what you’d find in New York or San Francisco), if you’re looking for a quality rental close to the city, consider Boutique Apartments.
RedPeak properties are scattered throughout the city; they have 18 urban locations in every neighborhood in Denver and each are at different price points, so you should be able to find something if your budget. Some of their newer buildings, The Seasons and One CIty Block, have amenities like a pool, workout room and resident events.

Other popular neighborhoods with small building rentals are LoHi and Highlands, Congress Park, West Wash Park and Baker off Broadway.
Because the city is super bike-friendly, it’s easy to get around no matter where home base is. The bus system is also convenient and easy to use. You can look up and plan your transfer on the RTD website.
