Denver Downtown
Highlands

Standing on the west side of I-25 and overlooking Downtown Denver, Highland is a resurgent center city neighborhood with a rich ethnic history. The community has been home to many waves of American immigrants--Italian, Irish, German and Mexican—who established the neighborhood's still-thriving churches, businesses, restaurants and cultural events.

Housing types available in Highland are wide-ranging—row houses, duplexes, apartments above retail shops, grand Victorian and Queen Anne mansions, and post-WW II era single family detached houses. The streets and the neighborhood's hilly topography are lined with trees. Highland is also characterized by its diverse age demographics, and has the largest population of kids aged 0-5 years in the City & County of Denver.

The Central Platte Valley, the South Platte River and I-25 create a series of buffers between Downtown and Highland, giving residents in Highland the advantage of quick accessibility to Downtown, while the neighborhood remains very much distinct from Downtown's core. 15th Street is the neighborhood's primary connection to Downtown.

Highland also offers a couple of unique commercial districts with locally owned specialty retailers and restaurants at 33rd and Tejon Street, and at 32nd Avenue between Zuni and Clay Streets. Residents in this predominantly Latino neighborhood patronize these popular districts' restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores and specialty food stores. Another resurgent and popular commercial district is nearby at 32nd and Lowell, across Federal Boulevard in the West Highland neighborhood.

Here are some other highlights of the Highland neighborhood:

  • Potter's Row: A historic district of renovated Victorian houses on Bryant Street between 32nd and 34th Streets.
  • West 28th Avenue Historic District: Tucked into a corner of the neighborhood overlooking the Central Platte Valley, this block-long historic district features beautiful turn-of-the-century flagstone houses and sidewalks. Also known as "Stoneman's Row." 
  • Churches: Highland's early immigrant communities built striking churches that still stand today--Asbury, Mt. Carmel, Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Patrick's and others. (Asbury, a sandstone building constructed as a Methodist church, has been empty for some time and is a possible housing development. Its tower can be seen clearly from the 16th Street Mall in Downtown's core.)
