Reader: New Rental Buildings in Denver Add Nothing to Neighborhoods

We recently posted about the ten largest new rental developments in Denver.

A report about the projects calculates that more than 3,300 units of rental inventory were added in the Mile High City during 2015 alone.

Not all of our readers were psyched about the construction of so many structures focused on renters, not owners.

Here's an example.

Pretty sad. All sterile buildings that add nothing to the neighborhoods. Same old same old. Nothing built for sale. Our booming areas sold out to corporate rental buildings. No tax base, transient housing, no thought for the area. Just build crap and rent away, at rip-off prices.
