RiNo is bounded by I-70 to the North, I-25 to the West, Park Avenue West to the South, and Arapahoe Street to the East.
RiNo—which stands for River North, referring to the Platte River running through it—is a neighborhood in the midst of exciting transformation. Once a commercial and industrial district, the neighborhood has attracted those with a pioneering spirit in recent years: painters, architects, sculptors, furniture makers and other creative people who have carved out niches amidst auto body, plumbing-and-heating, and other old-style businesses. Now, visitors will find an eclectic mix of craft breweries, music clubs, art studios, and trendy restaurants nestled between warehouses, and see historic red-brick buildings sitting side by side with sleek condo projects. As development downtown pushes north, RiNo is a natural area of interest for investors. And while it still has the raw feeling of a work in progress in many places, there is little doubt that this is one of Denver’s hippest neighborhoods — one poised to explode in the coming years.
