More about University Park & Observatory Park


New Construction Homes: Typically, building a new construction custom home in University Park or Observatory Park involves purchasing a small, outdated home to scrape and then building a new home in its place.  Although many small homes do still exist in this area, the price to buy these can start at a whopping $400,000-$500,000 and, more than likely, many of these homes will no longer be there in another decade or so.  The new construction and existing homes in University Park are priced lower than Observatory Park, offering a great option for folks wanting a little more square footage for their money. 

If you are interested in a new construction home, please let us know.  We specialize in new construction, helping clients from start to finish.  We can help you find your ideal lot, choose a builder, create a floor plan and ultimately will be there to help until you move into your brand new home.  We've worked with both locals and people relocating to the Denver area and would love to help you as well! 

Observatory Park: Observatory Park itself is located at Evans & S. Fillmore amidst huge trees and plenty of green grass. At the center of this serene park you'll find the Chamberlin Observatory, the inspiration for the park’s name. Chamberlin Observatory was one of many buildings designed by famous Denver architect, Robert Roeschlaub. The dome houses a 20 inch aperture Clark-Saegmuller refractor, which saw first light in July 1894, and is still “functional” today.

Top-Ranking College Nearby: Ranking at 85, University of Denver, known to the locals as D.U., enrolls about 10,400 students in its undergraduate, graduate and professional programs and is considered a Doctoral/Research University-Extensive.
