Downtown Real Estate

Being among the first areas of Colorado Springs to be developed, the residential areas of central Downtown Colorado Springs feature large older homes under mature trees. There are many charming historic homes in this area in a range of early-20th century styles. 

These Victorian homes feature original brick and hardwood finishes, decks, fireplaces, and interior mouldings. Of course, these homes have been lovingly kept and refurbished over the years, including up-to-date and high-quality appliances, bathroom and kitchen fittings, and efficient utilities. 

The denser urban areas host a range of lofts spaces, condo apartments, and other attached housing developments. Within Colorado Springs' more low-key downtown environment, these are not high-rise luxury condos, but efficient and comfortable units within a relaxed urban atmosphere. 

Downtown Colorado Springs Community

Central or Downtown Colorado Springs roughly covers the area north and east of the I-25 Ronald Reagan Highway, south of Uintah Street, and west of Wahsatch Avenue. This area includes a dense commercial core, the Colorado College campus, residential enclaves (especially to the north), and many attractions like parks, museums, and galleries.

Areas around Downtown Colorado Springs include the Old North End (to the north), Westside and Gold Hill Mesa (to the west), Ivywild and Stratton Meadows (to the south), and Middle Shooks Run and Hillside (to the east). 

Main thoroughfares are the I-25, which merges with U.S. Highway Route 24 for part of its length along the southern end downtown Colorado Springs, and the CanAm Highway which runs north to south through the middle of the whole area. 

Downtown Amenities

As mentioned, the downtown area of Colorado Springs is still relatively undeveloped compared to the central cores of other major U.S. cities. This means fewer skyscrapers and towering office blocks, and more historic buildings, parks, and unique businesses.

Some downtown highlights include:

  • Acacia Park
  • Monument Valley Park
  • America the Beautiful Park
  • South Shooks Run Park
  • The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center
  • Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum
  • Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts
  • U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum

Tracing the I-25 south and then east is Monument Creek - a creek lined with many of the downtown area’s best parks and open spaces. A trail system runs along this creek as well, providing an excellent space for exercise and enjoying the outdoors. Monument Valley Park, for example, includes tennis and pickleball courts, a pool, picnic pavilion, ball field, and gardens.

A prominent feature of downtown Colorado Springs is the Colorado College at the northern boundary. This scenic campus hosts many events open to the community, in addition to being a great place for continuing education.

Being the center of the wider Colorado Springs community, the area in and around downtown usually hosts city events and festivals. These include: 

  • Rocky Mountain State Games
  • The Cavalcade Showcase of Music
  • The Colorado Springs Labor Day Liftoff
  • Territory Days
