Overlooking Downtown Denver, this neighborhood has a history in housing various communities of immigrants creating a diverse and ethnic mix that still stands today. Housing is a varietal mix of duplexes, bungalows, towering Victorians as well as row homes. The Highlands also has several cozy commercial districts with specialty shops and gourmet restaurants.
The Highlands can be used as an all encompassing term for many sub-neighborhoods such as Berkeley, Chaffee Park, Elitch’s, Sunnyside, Grandview, Potter, and Witter-Cofield.
The area can be approximated by a pie shape drawn from downtown to Colfax and I-70 and ending at the city limits of Sheridan Blvd. North of I-70 is the location of Regis University and Inspiration Park.
