DENVER – Growth around the metro area isn’t hard to find. The number of construction cranes in each corner of the city proves development is constant and ongoing.

Over in Cherry Creek North, that growth has attracted new residents.

“We moved here a couple months ago,” Susan Emadi said. She and Dave Albin moved two miles, from west of Washington Park to the Cherry Creek North area.

The short stroll to restaurants, retail, and other businesses made that decision easy for the couple.

“Especially now in Denver, driving two miles takes almost half an hour,” Emadi said.

Albin said the two would spend most of their weekends in transit, “Basically, just driving or riding our bikes.”

Now they hardly use their cars to get around.

“You can stay here, you can work here, you can live here, you can shop here-- without ever getting into a car,” Julie Underdahl told Denver7.

Underdahl is the President and CEO of the Cherry Creek North Business Improvement District.

She explained the new development includes a combination of services.

“We have residential units going up, apartments and condos. We have new office buildings and we have new retail space.”

All amenities will add to the walkability of the area.

“Our walk score is 95,” Underdahl said. This means it’s considered a walker’s paradise—where cars aren’t needed for daily tasks.

“I think that walkability point is really important,” she added, “This is the most walkable community in Denver today.”
