Check out the area north of LoDo (north of 20th). There are many warehouses in this area, some with living spaces.

Hello Artfully,
How wonderful for us! I mean people who appreciate art, of course.

There are properties in the South Logan/I-25/Broadway area that look like what you could be looking for. The rents for apartments are in that range. South Broadway is probably a good place to check from the Trulia rentals as well as Craigslist. Be careful when shopping for rentals. Make sure you can get inside the rental before you give anyone money.

I would encourage you to speak to artists as well as shop owners on a noisy street. Let me know how you do.

Best regards,

I don't think any one area has a monopoly on northern light.

In lower downtown, I'm sure there are warehouses that have been converted to lofts. In fact, there are condos called lofts down there.

As others have noted, you haven't really stated what are the things you are looking for, and that limits how helpful we can be. Readers who want to post questions, please supply more information when requested. We're at our best when we have information.

My husband is an illustrator and he says an artist wants to be close to his subject matter and other artists. That would be the Capitol Hill and lower downtown areas. In fact, the general area running from Santa Fe and Broadway over to University along 14th is a very vibrant and interesting area. You can rub shoulders with other artists there, visit the Modern Art Museum as well as many galleries in this area.

You might also check out Loveland, Longmont and Boulder for their art communities. But, you asked about Denver. There is also the Academy of Arts in the area I described at the top. Denver has a concentration of universities at the Auraria Campus. My husband studied fine arts at Metropolitan State College years ago.

There are some inexpensive rents in this area. I love the restaurants. Younger adults migrate to this area for its lifestyle.

Happy hunting.

The Arts District on Santa Fe. There is a great property at 851 Santa Fe Dr., called The BitFactory. Hallways of studios great for artists!! But not livable.

Hi Lane,
I was wondering if you might have information on a warehouse for rent. I am getting bogged down with all the techno-info and seek insight. I am an artist of several mediums, including metal, sketching, and some fabric arts. I need lots of space and preferably out of earshot so I don't bother anyone while I work late hours. Although, I would like to find a spot that that is not far from the art walks, so I can take some of my work there easily. I'm not too concerned with the look of the building. My max price range currently is about 650-700, but If you find something close to that price I would be happy to look it over. Thank you for your time.

Hi Cassie,

I have a lot of clients who are artists so I search for these types of properties all the time! Can you give us a few more details and I can run it through my database to see if anyone has any leads? Feel free to contact me as well!

Look forward to hearing from you!

Hello Cassie
If you could post some more information about your situation, such as what kind of art you do, are you going to rent or purchase space. There is a large growing art community in north Denver and a well established art community South Santa Fe Area. I know of several commercial properties that have open floor plans great location. Hope all works out for you. Let me know if I can help.

Hi Cassie: Being a very large city, Denver has a variety of properties to meet just about any needs. If you can supply us with more information about price range, neighborhood and amenities that appeal to you, we all will be happy to offer some more solid suggestions. It also would be good to know exactly what kind of art you do. For example, a sculptor who makes a lot of hammer noise might want a location away from other residential properties to avoid noise complaints. BTW: I always suggest that buyers and sellers interview several agents before choosing one they feel they can best work with. Good luck

Kind regards,
