Highlands Neighborhood Highlights

The Highlands is one of the most sought after locations in Denver. With some of the city’s most beautiful historic homes, recently redeveloped commercial area, and excellent transport links to the city’s business center in the downtown area, the Highlands has attracted a lot of attention. It is one of the most vibrant and interesting places to live in the city, with a diverse and active community.

During the early 19th century, immigrants from English, Scottish, Italian, and German backgrounds flocked to the area. The street names and many of the historic landmarks still bear the marks of the area’s history. The Highlands contains some of the most historic and architecturally interesting buildings in Denver, which have been carefully preserved during the redevelopment of the area. The most interesting buildings in Highlands are in the Stoneman’s Row and Potter Highland Historic Districts. The neighborhood contains a variety of different homes, including many high end lofts and condominiums, many of which were built during the redevelopment that has taken place in the area since the 1990s. There are also many historic single family homes still left in the area.

The Highlands neighborhood is one of the most attractive in the city due to the combination of wide, tree-lined streets; parks such as Highland Park; and historic homes. Highlands Square also has a wide range of shopping, boutiques, bars, dining, and entertainment venues, attracting people from across the Denver region.
