Vintage Loft Building

Lofts are large, undivided spaces converted into residences. Many times they start as older industrial or warehouse buildings. Today, however, many new buildings are being constructed with the same design philosophies that fall under the Loft heading. The main attraction to Central Denver is their location in the heart of the action. Lofts are for those who desire carefree living close to restaurants, sporting events and all of the other amenities that Urban Denver has to offer.
