Getting into Denver’s housing market is not for the faint of heart—or wallet. Entry-level properties are few and far between, despite an influx of buyers eager for starter homes. “When you look at other big cities, like Chicago, the young adults work downtown and buy condos,” says Fiona Arnold, president of Denver-based Mainspring Developers. “That’s how they get started. But in Denver it’s harder; if you want a small unit, you have to rent.”
To help fill that void, Mainspring Developers is launching sales this week on The Orpheus, a midcentury-modern-inspired, 26-unit building in the Jefferson Park neighborhood.
