The Five Points neighborhood, named for the Washington St., 27th Ave, Welton St. and 26th Ave. intersection, where the downtown street grid meets the neighborhood street grid, is one of Denver’s oldest historic neighborhoods and is situated just northeast of Denver’s Central Business District and Lower Downtown.
Five Points was historically home to Denver’s aristocracy, housing Mayors, Governors and prominent business people. The neighborhood also has a rich jazz history with big name appearances by Billie Holiday, Miles Davis and Nat King Cole.
In recent years, development and investment in the Five Points neighborhood has been focused on commercial buildings along the Welton St. light rail corridor. The neighborhood is attractive for its affordable homes, close proximity to downtown and Coors Field, easy access to the light rail system and the many “dude bro” bars in the ballpark area of the neighborhood.
