Neighborhood Report: Lowry Field

By REcolorado News

If you’re looking for a Denver neighborhood that offers new construction, proximity to the city, urban yet laid back vibes, and family-oriented neighborhood, visit the community of Lowry.

When Lowry Air Force base closed in 1994, a 20-year build out began. The planners incorporated the re-purpose of military outbuildings, barracks, and offices into the design plans.

As the former Air Force base was closed and buildings re-purposed, the Lowry Foundation has worked to preserve the rich history of Lowry. The neighborhood still features many historic buildings, including:

  • The Big Bear Ice Arena
  • the Eisenhower Chapel
  • Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum
  • Bishop Machebeuf High School
  • The Steam Plant Lofts
  • Hangar Lofts

Residents of Lowry Field don’t have to look far for entertainment — Lowry Town Center offers a variety of shops, restaurants, and fitness centers.  The Colorado neighborhood also offers bike lanes and access to RTD rail and bus stops, with convenient proximity to Cherry Creek Shopping District and downtown Denver.

Lowry also includes 17 parks and open spaces for families to enjoy. On sunny spring days in Colorado, you can spot young professionals strolling with their furry friends at the Lowry Dog Park. If you’re looking for community activities, visit the Lowry Sports Complex where you’ll find soccer teams, basketball, and tennis leagues.

This historic location spans from Alameda to the south and 11th Avenue to the north, reaching west to Monaco Parkway and east to Yosemite and Dayton Streets. View the Lowry neighborhood on a map.
