The Historic Highland: One of Denver’s Finest

Highland is a highly coveted neighborhood in the Denver metro. Although Highland is technically one large neighborhood, locals often break it down into Highland, LoHi (Lower Highland) and Platte Street so you may hear it referred to as the Highlands. 


Past & Present

This historic neighborhood is one of Denver’s oldest and has recently seen massive growth in commercial and residential construction.


Originally known as the Northside, Highland continues to see massive growth, with average home prices now topping $700,000. In recent years, an influx of new residents and popular eateries, bars, and retailers has propelled downtown’s neighbor into one of the hottest expanses in the city. Wherever you go, expect to find a blend of young families, new homeowners, and long-timers taking up residence in classic Denver squares and recently constructed apartments.


Victorian-era homes and buildings; lush gardens and parks; hip independently owned shops; art galleries; and restaurants make the Denver Highlands neighborhood a great destination for visitors.
There are amazing pockets within this neighborhood. For example, the small but mighty Navajo Street Art District and the Bug Theater. Built-in 1912 as a moviehouse, this theatre is still a community gathering spot for oft-humorous performances, among other creative endeavors.


Busy City

If you’re looking for a community that has a variety of food and beverage options, you’ve hit the jackpot. The ratio of food and beverage offerings per capita may just be the highest of any Denver neighborhood. LoHi, the lower Highlands, is characterized by a mix of old and ultra-modern architecture, This includes some of the city’s most innovative restaurants and bars. In addition, enjoy incredible views of the Highland Bridge and downtown Denver.
