LoHi Place Townhomes - The Neighborhood

Highlands, bounded by West 38th Avenue on the north, Interstate 25 on the east, the South Platte River on the southeast, Speer Boulevard and West 29th Avenue on the south and Sheridan Boulevard on the west — is one of Denver's oldest neighborhoods. Now, it's also one of Denver's hippest — with art galleries, restaurants and several historic districts, including a row of architecturally impressive brownstones, as well as new housing; competing with traditionally tonier Cherry Creek.  Walk-ability, a sense of community, a more stable neighborhood and improving schools are reasons for the success of the Highland neighborhood.

Lohi is Denver’s “it” spot which stretches for a 250 acre section northwest of downtown.  The neighborhood, which is truly full of life is in close proximity to Downtown and LoDo with only a short walk across the bridge to 16th Street and Commons Park.  This area has experienced amazing changes and growth over the past few years.  Overflowing with trendy restaurants, bars, and shops, Men’s Journal named this hotspot one of the BEST neighborhoods in the country.  ”Overlooking the downtown skyline, Highland brick brownstones, row houses, townhouses and modern condominium complexes are bringing in single professionals who party like grownups, couples who aren’t quite ready to settle down, and young families who are looking for a little more color than they might find in the increasingly beige neighborhoods of Cherry Creek or Washington Park”.

In Lower Highlands, you will find a charming neighborhood of small boutiques and
restaurants situated among bungalow style houses, spacious new townhomes and hip new condo buildings.  Here you will find shops offering anything from books and gifts, interior décor and trendy fashions to a fabulous cooking school and amazing wine and cheese specialty shops. Boutique gyms and yoga studios abound in the area.  The restaurants are as equally diverse serving up Mexican, French, Continental, Italian and Caribbean cuisine, unique steak bars, sushi and seafood.  And to finish the night off- head over to one of the many neighborhood bars for specialty cocktails!

Recently, the neighborhood has been featured in Travel + Leisure Magazine and National Geographic Traveler.  Men’s Journal named Denver’s Highlands (Lohi) as one of the U.S.’s best neighborhoods. As stated in 5280 Magazine: “Highlands has over the past few years become THE  part of town to live in and be in and has become a nationally recognized, trendsetting model for the possibilities of 21st century new urbanism,”  The Denver Post reports Denver’s Highland neighborhood is boasting high-end housing to rival Cherry Creek. Million-dollar plus custom homes have slowly been cropping up in the Denver Highlands over the last few years – mostly attributed to walk-ability, sense of community, improved schools, and The Highland neighborhood, for the first time, boasts some higher-end housing that is in proximity to downtown’s sports stadiums and its business, entertainment and retail districts – Location, Location, Location!
