Arcadia Properties, Inc. has invested in several of Denver’s Historic Districts and redeveloped many historic buildings.

Reinvigorated neighborhoods provide a symbol and link to our cultural heritage. Redevelopment at 851 Leyden Street well represents the firm’s investment values.

Prior to Arcadia’s property purchase, the historic Victorian home and outbuildings had seriously deteriorated and faced an uncertain future.

The development plan here included complete building restoration, the razing of antiquated outbuildings, and the construction of three additional residences of compatible architectural style. The result was an economic success that led to significant further investment in the surrounding neighborhood.


We believe that careful architectural expression of scale, proportion and detail can create a timeless quality and sense of serenity, leading to enduring value and optimized investment.


We are a small, effective team that can address your construction and investment needs, when it comes to thoughtful new home construction and challenging renovation projects.
