It was about 25 years ago when real estate agent Darrell Hamilton was showing off a higher-end, luxury development to a discerning client at Eighth Avenue and North Clarkson Street.
“My buyer looked at me and said, ‘You want me to come all the way up to Eighth Avenue? We’re not going that far north,’” Hamilton said.
He later was pitching buyers on a similar type of development at 17th and Emerson streets and one told him, “You want us to go past Colfax? We’re not living over there.”
Both developments ultimately sold out and foreshadowed what’s going on today in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
