Developed over the past decade on the site of a former Air Force base, Lowry is a meticulously well-planned suburban neighborhood outside Denver. Lowry’s modernity and forward-thinking design have quickly established it as a popular neighborhood for families seeking a laid-back community-orientated lifestyle while retaining easy access to Denver’s world-class cultural attractions and urban amenities.
Lowry’s ultra-modern design emphasizes lush green spaces and the surrounding scenery, with more than 800 acres of parks and other recreational areas situated within its boundaries. The neighborhood has been planned with pedestrians as its main priority, with wide boulevards and parkways and a plethora of trails crisscrossing the neighborhood.
Local amenities include numerous shops, restaurants, and grocery stores, alongside public art spaces, an ice rink, and other entertainment offerings.
These well-thought-out additions all contribute to making Lowry an amazingly livable suburb that lies within a short drive of any of Denver’s other districts.

PEOPLE & LIFESTYLE
Denver’s neighborhoods contain a large amount of green space, however Lowry is particularly fortunate in this regard, with more than twenty percent of the city’s park area falling within the neighborhood.
Lowry’s abundance of greenery includes the world-class 18-hole CommonGround Golf Course, designed by noted golf course architect Tom Doak. CommonGround also has a junior golf course where aspiring young golfers can hone their skills.
Lowry is regarded as a model for eco-friendly modern residential developments, with more than thirty-five percent of its abundant green spaces dedicated to native plant-life. These efforts have earned Lowry the Colorado Governor’s Award for Smart Growth.
The district’s history however, is not forgotten in its modern look and feel. Some remnants of the old Air Force base on which Lowry was built still remain and have been incorporated into the neighborhood’s design, with several aircraft hangars repurposed into expansive retail space, as well as the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum.
An open-air shopping mall at Lowry Town Center offers everything from grocery stores to fashion boutiques. There is also a great range of restaurants and bars serving some of Colorado’s finest craft beer. New options are constantly being added to Lowry’s developing Dining District. Situated within the repurposed Air Force base structure Hangar 2, Lowry’s Dining District aims to soon establish itself as one of Denver’s premier locations for dining out.
