Rents in Denver have fallen during the pandemic, according to a recent market report, but that doesn’t mean apartment developers are any less keen on a city that was a hot spot for rent growth before COVID-19 came calling. In fact, the number of would-be apartments in the planning pipeline for the metro area hit a record 46,000 in December, according to Denver data firm Apartment Insights. The X Company, the Chicago-based developer behind the X Denver apartment tower that is inching toward completion after nearly three years of construction just north of Coors Field at 3100 Inca St., embodies that enthusiasm for the Mile High City even in the face of shifting consumer preferences. X Denver offers traditional studio and one-bedroom apartments inside its 12-story, 455-apartment frame, but the X Company also allows people to rent individual bedrooms with private bathrooms in two-, three- and four-bedroom “co-living” apartments with shared kitchens and common areas.

SAN PABLO — Water here is so scarce that farmers habitually gaze up at the mountains surrounding their valley — where overpumping from aquifers may force 80,000 irrigated acres out of production. As Rose Medina traversed her ancestral lands last week, scanning the Sangre de Cristos for the promise of a strong spring runoff, she saw barely a dusting of snow. “Looks like we’ll need more,” Medina said. Big spring snow could send water coursing down Culebra Creek and into her “lindero” boundaries — headgates controlled by an elected “mayordomo” steward — allowing growth of hay for her 16 cows and quenching her apple, plum and cherry trees. The ancient Moorish water-sharing methods adapted 400 years ago in southern Colorado ensure that, even in dry years, small family farmers survive. But survival is far from ensured across the broader San Luis Valley, where leaders in an area that’s already among the poorest in the state are bracing for a major economic hit. “Agriculture alone … [Read more...] about Water worries in Colorado’s San Luis Valley come to surface
