Arvada occupies an area in the northwest part of Denver, Colorado. It is the seventh largest municipality in the state of Colorado and home to the Olde Town Arvada historic district. The area continues to develop new suburban homes, with lots of new family-sized homes just around the corner from the historic older part of town. These mostly two to four bedroom units are just waiting to have someone move into them and experience this charming community.
There are plenty of older places around for those who prefer a more rustic style, and new development ensures the availability of modern housing. City Center primarily consists of two to three bedroom single family homes, and also includes some apartment and studio situations. City Center offers some of the lower rent costs compared to elsewhere in Arvada. A high demand area with many beautiful family-sized home options is Mount Olivet, a neighborhood where many of the houses have been around since the 70’s. For those looking for a bit higher pricetag, Leyden is a delightful suburban style community offering many medium-sized homes. All of these locations, being in the western side of Denver, are not too far from the beautiful Rocky Mountains, with many hiking and skiing options. In addition to this perk, you will be only minutes away from the art and culture, entertainment, and shopping that downtown Denver has to offer.
The leading industries in Arvada are retail and wholesale trade, hospitality and tourism, and healthcare. The area’s leading employers are Dish, Petsmart, and Care.com. Many of the residents of Arvada commute to Denver and Boulder, where the economy is more diverse. Denver is home to many large companies and is rated by Forbes as the #1 of Best Places for Business and Careers. Large telecommunications companies such as Qwest and Dish Network make their homes in Denver, and are major sources of employment for a lot of people.
