Noteworthy Mention of the West Highlands Neighborhood in Denver

Denver’s West Highland Neighborhood is one of Denver’s most desirable neighborhoods and is considered by many, including Travel + Leisure Magazine and National Geographic Traveler, to be a great place to call home.

History of the West Highlands Neighborhood

This neighborhood was established in the late 1800s, promoting a quiet, clean and safe environment situated in a natural area several hundred feet above the city of Denver. The West Highland Neighborhood architecture features a combination of historic and modern homes, with the original houses constructed between 1893 and 1939. Many of the older bungalows have been remodeled to keep up with today’s standards while keeping the charm and character that many people have come to love in West HIghlands. The community has experienced unprecedented growth and change over the past decade with many new condo and townhome developments as well as apartment complexes.

Highlands Square, at 32nd and Lowell Boulevard, is the epicenter of the West Highland Neighborhood. It is lined with a variety of local Denver businesses, including restaurants, coffee shops, and boutique retail shopping, as well as a number of service providers. Here, you’ll find local shops offering everything from books and gifts to fashion and exercise apparel. The Highlands Farmers Market is a popular stop on Sundays during the summer and there are many neighborhood special events throughout the year.
