Project Description:

Highlands’ Garden Village is a 27 acre mixed-use project in northwest Denver on the site of the historic former Elitch Gardens Amusement Park.

Wolff Lyon's responsibilities included design and construction documents for the single family and townhouse units as well as participation in the site planning and approval process. In this regard we assisted in articulating and evaluating the effectiveness of the design concepts and standards.

This challenging project plans to revive the historic theater and carousel buildings, create a mix of uses and building types, initiate a local farmer's market, and provide a wide range of housing opportunities including single family detached, townhouses, rental apartments, senior, live-work, and co-housing units. In addition to the commercial and civic uses on the site, there will be more than 350 dwelling units.
