ABOUT:


 

The Capitol Hill neighborhood is technically located in East Denver which begins immediately east of Broadway, the neighborhood's western boundary.  Denver also recognizes a statistical neighborhood called North Capitol Hill, but this is called Uptown by many residents.  Colfax Avenue is the border between these two neighborhoods.

The neighborhood is located just southeast of Denver's Central Business District (CBD) in a well-established residential neighborhood, with commercial centers located along major traffic routes (such as Colfax Avenue and Broadway) and interior arterials (such as East 13th and 14th Avenues).  The neighborhood is directly east of the Civic Center neighborhood and the Colorado State Capitol.  Over 95% of this neighborhood is developed.  The average year of construction for buildings is approximately 1920, with some of the oldest single-family homes in the city.

Capitol Hill is Denver's most densely populated neighborhood.  It was once the home of Denver's elite, but is now a mix of historic mansions, apartment and condo building.  Capitol Hill is one of the most cosmopolitan neighborhoods in Denver, well-known as a haven for artists and bohemians.  There are numerous restaurants, clubs, bars, stores, concert venues, and other cultural amenities in the community.
