What’s working for Denver is that it’s less expensive than San Francisco and New York, but that at the same time it has a growing and diverse industry -- mutual funds, natural gas and technology.

Denver now has a vibrant downtown. It never used to be so. So now you have a true mix of city and sky.The city’s expanding young population is a boon for apartment developers.
Equity Residential (EQR), America’s largest publicly traded multifamily landlord, called the Mile High City one of its top three growth markets for 2014.
Of the top 25 U.S. metropolitan areas, Denver was tied with Seattle for the third-biggest increase in 25- to 34-year-old residents from 2008 to 2012, data from the Census Bureau and Moody’s Analytics Inc. show. The 9.1 percent gain trailed only Washington, with a 12 percent jump, and Baltimore, with a 9.6 percent gain. Los Angeles and New York were among areas with the smallest increases in that age group.

Colorado is home to some of the nation’s most popular skiing destinations, with Vail and six other resorts a two-hour drive or less from Denver’s center. The city’s restaurant scene is also a draw. Rioja’s executive chef, Jennifer Jasinski, was a 2013 James Beard award winner and a finalist on the Bravo network’s “Top Chef Masters” cookoff show. Art galleries, bars and nightclubs dominate downtown’s LoDo neighborhood.
