The Gayborhood: Denver’s Lo-Hi

Lo-Hi - Denver

Across the South Platte River and I-25 from downtown Denver, the Lower Highlands neighborhood (aka Lo-Hi) sits on a slight rise with great views of the skyline and historic streets lined with Craftsman bungalows and Victorian homes.

Like so many districts that have become popular with artists, gays, entrepreneurs and hipsters, Lower Highlands was a mostly prosaic workaday neighborhood until undergoing rapid gentrification in the ’90s.

More recently, things are buzzing in the area much closer to downtown, reached via the modern pedestrian bridge across Commons Park West, which connects the area with newly renovated Union Station and historic LoDo (Lower Downtown).
