Area Overview

Bordering the historic Baker District, and just steps from the Arts District on Santa Fe, Inca Street Townhomes is the ideal location for the person who wants to be in the center of it all, while still living in one of Denver’s oldest and most charming neighborhoods. Diverse, locally-owned shopping and dining establishments are within a few minutes walk, as are plenty options for night life. Centrally located and convenient to mass transit (10th and Osage Station), Inca Street Townhomes is just minutes from all that central Denver has to offer.

Each month, Santa Fe Drive closes to traffic and becomes a walking mall for First Friday Art Walks. Stroll several blocks of Santa Fe, taking in art of all medias and genres and meeting the artists, as galleries and studios open their doors for perusing. You can experience art simply walking down the street.

The vibrant Baker neighborhood is an eclectic mashup of history and modern city living. As one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods, Baker hosts some of the city’s most beautiful preserved historic homes. In contrast, modern town homes and newer structures make for a mixed architectural environment, drawing a diverse population.
