I bought a condo in Glendale before the gentrification really took hold of the area. Glendale is an extremely diverse community made up of a limited amount of property for purchase and mostly made up of retail and apartment buildings. The city is planning on building a shopping area and has already completed a restaurant and hotel area. The commute from Glendale to almost anywhere in Denver is from ten to twenty minutes, so really central given how vast Denver is. The property and sales tax is less than in other Denver communities making Glendale a highly sought after market for both commercial and residential ownership.
Glendale is an enclave of Denver (city inside a city). Cherry Creek Trail runs through and there are several great parks, not to mention Infinity Field. Wonderful local eateries and shops as well as some more popular chains. Accessible and family friendly.
