Is the commute from Sotuh Acoma street horrible?
Oh, so many questions before I get to Denver July 8th to find a new home!
My wife and I looked at about 15 apartments and ended up choosing The Metro near downtown.
Based off of what I can remember, here is a run down of the places we visited and a 1 (Low) - 5 (High) rating
The District 4.5
Alexan City Ctr 4.5
The Station at Riverfront 4
The Apartments at Denver Place 3.5
Commons Park West 4.0
City Lofts 3.5
Boston/Bank Lofts 3.5
Ceirra Crest 4.0
Greenwood Plaza 4.5
For us the most important thing was having a nice place near the light rail. Closeness to DU was not a major issue because we were looking near the light rail, which generally most of these apartments were near. The price range varied pretty big between these places from 650-1450 starting for a studio/1BR.
If you have any questions on any of these places, I can try to give you some more information, but regarding Ventana, I do not believe my wife and I looked at those.
