"A mixed area in both prices and looks"

Laredo Highline is a neighborhood made up of mainly single family homes and condos. The median home price is $130,000 but there are some incredible deals here for both homes and condos due to the economy. Depending on where you live in the neighborhood, things can look very different. On the 6th Avenue side, in my opinion, it is much nicer looking than on the Colfax side. The Colfax side looks dreary, unclean, and run down. The 6th Avenue side looks much more friendly and appealing, and overall a nicer place to call home. The neighborhood is bordered by some busy streets that are all major roads in Aurora, but since it is so far east and there's not much beyond it, it doesn't have the same traffic as many other areas in the city. It can get congested at peak traffic times, but not as bad as many of the other areas in town.

This location is close to both I-225 and I-70 and it can make for a rather easy commute for those who work out at DIA or those that travel out of the airport often. The neighborhood is within about 15 minutes of a variety of choices for restaurants and shopping, although the shopping here is limited. There is one small park in the neighborhood just off of 7th, but close by there is a golf course and a great outdoor soccer and baseball area called Aurora Sports park.

There are no medical facilities in the neighborhood, but just up the road off of Colfax are two really good hospitals, one specifically for children.

Overall this isn't an area I would recommend, unless you pay close attention to where you're buying or renting. In a mixed area such as this I would take the time to talk to the neighbors and find out as much as you can before signing on the dotted line.
  • good hospitals close by
  • inexpensive housing
  • crime
  • some areas look run down
