Whether you are new to the Pikes Peak Region or you are a long term resident, you will want to be in the know when it comes to the New South End of Colorado Springs⁠!

Colorado Springs is the jewel of the Front Range and has recently been praised for its healthy outdoor lifestyle, affordable living, and growing job market. The city is projected to surpass Denver as the largest city in the state by the year 2050.

Fueling much of this growth is the revitalization of the downtown area, specifically the south end. Once labeled downtown’s sore shoulder, things are really beginning to evolve. Business investors and developers are seeing the potential in this once neglected part of town and it is turning into something quite extraordinary. Don’t expect to find downtown streets lined with cookie cutter business facades. Rather, you will find an eclectic mix of hip restaurants, specialty shops, and new lodging options for a feel that will be unique and welcoming for both visitors and residents. What can you expect to see in the New South End’s future?
