Welcome to Byers Place, central Denver’s newest idea in single-family home development, located within the West Washington Park neighborhood. Byers Place will be comprised of 19 detached homes, nine facing South Pennsylvania Street, and ten along South Pearl Street. A new public alley through the middle of the site will accommodate paired two-car garages for each new residence. Home sizes will range from 1,100 to 2,000 square feet, with additional finished basement space and storage. In effect, this plan reflects the urban design of the beautiful surrounding neighborhood, allowing us to “fit in.”
The inspiration for Byers Place comes from the simple premise of livability, the foremost feature contributing to the popularity of neighborhoods like West Washington Park. The higher, non-suburban density of one and two story homes found here create opportunities for social interaction. Along with the vibrant nearby commercial nodes of restaurants, shops and services, this location provides the type of civic exchange many of us crave, yet haven’t found in suburban or vertical downtown living.
An additional consideration for the design of Byers Place is that smaller homes - some would say sensibly-sized homes - can actually be more livable and comfortable than their suburban counterparts. The award-winning Denver architect Charles Downing has designed these homes so that you will use and enjoy your entire home, every day. You will marvel that smaller size and high finish are perfectly compatible. Moreover, opting out of oversized, secluded suburban choices means a smaller carbon footprint, less space to accumulate useless items, and ultimately a richer lifestyle.
