There’s an eye-catching new addition to the Highland suburb of Denver that’s impossible to miss. This week marks a milestone for the city’s iconic silhouette as Skyline at Highlands welcomes its first wave of eager residents home. This groundbreaking mixed-use development, spearheaded by Grand PeaksOZ ArchitectureWeitz and Access Industries, stands as a testament to innovative urban living in the heart of the Mile High City.

Rising above the vibrant Highland neighborhood, the Class A new development offers 533 luxury studio, one, and two-bedroom apartments with sweeping views of Denver’s cityscape and the Rocky Mountains. Its prime location, steps away from Highland Park and the South Platte River, provides residents with an ideal blend of urban convenience and natural ambiance. The property’s unique geographic position puts residents at the heart of one of Denver’s most dynamic areas. Known for its diverse dining scene, charming shops, and illustrious nightlife, Highland offers an array of immersive experiences right at residents’ doorsteps. The proximity to downtown Denver also ensures easy access to the city’s major business district, sporting venues, and cultural attractions.

Community integration proves to be a common theme throughout this project, as fostered by the concierge staff at Skyline. In partner with Denver-based Experiential Living, residents are privy to a wide array of services such as event coordination, amenity rentals, local restaurant and shopping guidance, and so much more. The development’s “Skyline Society” program will connect residents with local businesses, fostering a sense of community and supporting the neighborhood’s small business economy.

As Denver continues to grow and evolve, Skyline at Highlands represents a forward-thinking approach to urban living. It addresses the needs of a diverse population, from young professionals to empty nesters, all seeking a high-quality living experience in the city.

“Skyline at Highlands represents an exciting shift for housing density in what was an otherwise sleepy area of the evolving city in years past,” says Chris Arnold, co-founder at Authentic. “This project holds a special place in my heart, having commuted via bike up and down this corridor for the last decade. We’ve been able to work with an incredible team at Grand Peaks and together created a brand and go-to-market strategy that really meets the evolving needs of today’s modern renter and anticipates the future of Denver’s urban lifestyles.”

The development’s allure lies in its meticulous attention to detail and commitment to resident experience. From studios to two-bedroom apartments, each home boasts high-end finishes, smart home technology, and thoughtfully designed spaces such as gourmet kitchens, custom cabinetry, and oversized windows throughout, so neighbors can take in the adjacent mountain views.

Skyline’s amenities package is equally impressive and second to none. Residents enjoy access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, a rooftop pool with panoramic views, an Abbey-Road-approved music room, an expansive dog run, and even a mountain gear rental service! Unlike other new developments, Skyline also uniquely offers onsite Sonder-operated furnished apartment homes, specifically catering to those seeking short-term Airbnb-but-better accommodations.

Grand Peaks continues to lead by example, with sustainability at the forefront of the project’s mission. Skyline at Highland incorporates green roofs, solar panels, and energy-efficient systems, setting a new benchmark for sustainable urban development in Denver. The project also incorporates a comprehensive waste management system and promotes eco-friendly practices among its residents. This aligns with the values of environmentally conscious renters and sets a new standard for responsible urban development.

“Our goal was to create branded materials that a community like Skyline deserves. The property not only provides exceptional living spaces but intentionally blends with the beauty of the surrounding area, which Denver is world-renowned for. As a design lead, the same blend of natural modernity needed to transcend through the experiential gifts created,” explains Melody Sorensen, creative director at Authentic.

The development team partnered with the multifamily marketing group Authentic to craft a comprehensive and compelling go-to-market strategy. This collaboration resulted in a bespoke marketing approach, including onsite activation, a custom-built website, and experiential branded gifts that showcase Skyline’s approach to its urban community.

The grand opening of Skyline at Highlands comes at a time when the Denver real estate market is experiencing significant growth and transformation. Despite challenges in the broader multifamily economy, the city’s appeal as a destination for both businesses and individuals remains strong. Skyline’s successful launch underscores the continued demand for high-quality, amenity-rich urban living options in prime locations.

As Skyline at Highlands opens its doors, it promises to redefine urban living in Denver, offering residents a harmonious blend of luxury, convenience, and community in one of the city’s most desirable locations. For those interested in joining this exciting new community, Skyline at Highlands is now accepting leasing applications. Prospective residents can explore available units and amenities through virtual tours or schedule in-person visits to experience firsthand the unparalleled views and posh finishes that define this landmark development.
