Why you'd want to live in LoHi
LoHi (short for Lower Highland) is sometimes also referred to as East Highland (and frequently referenced together with its sister neighborhood, West Highland by locals as "the Highlands"), has become a hot spot to see and be seen. With a wonderful history of local "mom & pop" eateries, the LoHi's revitalization has continued to drive a neighborhood culture of fabulous restaurants, wonderful retail shops and a recent influx of microbreweries that cant be beat. The neighborhood, officially located between 38th Avenue, Speer, Zuni, and the Platte River, is just across the highway from Downtown Denver. With an eclectic population to match its architectural diversity, LoHi is one of the most inclusive locales in all of Denver, boasting a family friendly neighborhood even as it draws hip young singles in droves. Despite the ever-rising home values in this wonderfully accepting neighborhood, there are homes at quite different price points available. The area is now primarily comprised of newer lofts, condos and townhouses that have largely replaced the older original buildings, but some of these historic single family homes can still be found. LoHi's trendy urban vibe attracts funky, independent boutiques, while its active residents enjoy nearby parks with all the joys of Downtown living. The Highlands Bridge—a pedestrian overpass - grants convenient access to Downtown Denver, while the relative distance the bridge affords grants residents a measure of neighborhood privacy amidst the bustle of a dynamic urban environment.
