In the middle of LoHi’s restaurant row, come explore a sophisticated approach to urban living, steps from downtown
Within a 4-block walk of The Edge LoDo, you’ll have 21 dining/tavern options — Ale House, Linger, Avanti –- not to mention lobster-purveyor Maine Shack, which just opened.
You’re not going to believe the range of dining/tavern options you’ll have within a 4-block walk if you’re among the 44 buyers that will move into The Edge LoHi sometime in the next few months. There’ll be at least 21 choices waiting — Ale House, Linger, Avanti, two sushi options, coffee places — not to mention lobster-purveyor Maine Shack. It just opened, 2 blocks south of The Edge.
You can drive past the building nearing completion Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 19-20, at 17th and Central, from where new arrivals will get a panorama of downtown’s skyline and of the Highland footbridge crossing over into Riverfront, LoDo and to Union Station. And you can visit The Edge’s sales center, 2 blocks south at 15th and Boulder Street, to see what’s still available to buy.
Last week, the project’s super-sized penthouse sold for $1.9 million, taking it past the 60%-sold mark. But The Edge’s sales team can still serve up to two units at prices under $500,000 and has a couple of two-bedroom units left with those showpiece views of downtown for under $800,000.
This is particularly something to see if you’ve been looking around the scene in farther-out areas of Highland and Sloan’s, where new “slot home” product is so visible now. “At The Edge,” says veteran broker Stan Kniss, “you’re going to see a more sophisticated look at downtown living, for around the same price as those row-home products, that have nothing like The Edge’s access to dining and downtown.”
Part of the difference, Kniss adds, is in the construction and finish quality. The Edge is a boutique scaled condo — about a sixth of the size of mega projects in downtown — but has steel-and-concrete construction, along with a more polished look to its lobby/lounge areas. There are walnut entry door frames of every unit and designer appliances (Viking in the penthouses, Bosch in the lower-priced homes). “The Edge LoHi project offers a new level of sophisticated living,” says Kniss, “that’s at the edge of downtown and in the heart of a real neighborhood.”
All units are assigned covered parking — two spaces for two-bedroom homes. Among the offerings Kniss and his team will show you are a few remaining Upper Edge penthouse units, ones that each have dramatic high-ceiling entertainment areas with high-window walls, built-in fireplaces and a second-level mezzanine overhead, each with a wet bar with cabinets and a wine fridge, opening to private rooftop decks plumbed for a gas barbecue.
Right now, they’re priced from the high $700s. Kniss and his team also have a luxury-sized two-bedroom still available at $1.125 million. You’ll get the whole picture from The Edge’s Presentation Center on the five-pointed corner of 15th, Boulder and Umatilla streets in LoHi, around the block from Linger and Little Man Ice Cream.
You’re still a few weeks away from getting the first tours inside the building, but Kniss says you should be visiting now while the best selection of units and views is available. From downtown, take 15th Street west across I-25 into LoHi, a block to Boulder Street, and watch for the pink door.
