Southmoor Park

#18

An oddly shaped plot of land that, alongside Hampden South, marks the city’s southeastern border, Southmoor Park saw a 17 percent jump in year-over-year average home sale prices. Apartment buildings are redefining the skyline, as is the recently developed Belleview Station. The master-planned, mixed-use community is where the neighborhood’s action is concentrated; it’s brought some of the city’s most popular eateries closer to what we call suburbia-lite. Proximity to the Denver Tech Center and Cherry Creek Reservoir are two other big draws.

How we got these numbers: We utilized the city’s official list of 78 neighborhoods (only 70 had enough data to be included), and ranked them using four variables: home prices, crime data, school rankings, and an X factor score that accounts for things like access to open space, proximity to public transportation, and restaurant and shopping options.

Your Itinerary

Eat & Drink

South Newport Street is lined with the neighborhood’s top restaurants, including Los Chingones, Sushi-Rama, Ambli, Tap & Burger, and the newest addition, Le French. Local java expert Corvus Coffee Roasters also has a location on the strip.

Shop

Fashion arrived at Belleview Station with the opening of A Line Boutique, a trendy women’s store that also has three other locations around town. (Schedule a styling appointment just down the block at Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare to complete your new look.) Those hoping to furnish a new home and not break the bank should set their sights on Joy’s Consigned Furnishings.

Get Moving

Cherry Creek Reservoir, a few miles east, is a great place to stretch your legs. If you want a serious sweat, though, check out some of the neighborhood’s boutique fitness studios, such as CorePower Yoga, Orangetheory Fitness, and Barre3.
