The close proximity to downtown, has resulted in rapid growth of the Highlands neighborhood in recent years. The Denver Highlands is an eclectic mix of Victorian architecture, bungalows and classic Denver Squares in contrast with more modern and contemporary architecture. In spite of the extensive recent development of taller apartment structures and larger condo complexes, the Highlands still offers a large inventory of single family homes. The bustling shopping area holds an array of adorable specialty shops, clothing boutiques, restaurants, brunch spots and a few unique bars, making it the perfect spot for exploring all the wonderful things Denver has to offer.
