Urban

Upper Colfax

With its edgy urban vibe just east of downtown, Upper Colfax--also known as North Capitol Hill--is an Enterprise Zone attracting striking renovations and redevelopments at many cross streets, with national brands like Office Depot (at Pearl), expanded local mainstays such as Argonaut Liquor (at Clarkson), and a new rental/retail project (at Downing). The legendary #15 bus is the seventh busiest transit route in North America, and its high-frequency service benefits the taverns, boutiques, and international flavor eateries all along the busy corridor. Colorful, quirky retail spaces blend naturally into the new infill of mixed-use housing and street-level shops. Venues with fine acoustics for live shows—including the Fillmore and the Ogden—delight hip, young music audiences.
