Local Denver Developer, Highland Development Company, Breaks Ground in Uptown Neighborhood

Denver, CO – Local Denver developer, Highland Development Company (HDC), local architect, Studio 646 Architects, and local general contractor, DIRC Homes, break ground on 39 innovative, and attainable condos in Denver’s latest addition to the Uptown neighborhood.


“We are excited to be breaking ground today on an innovative housing option in Denver at The Nightingale.”, said Randy Henckel, president DIRC Homes. “This community gives homeowners the opportunity to live in contemporary urban luxury at an affordable price in Uptown, one of Denver’s most desirable locations.” Located across from the Uptown Hospital District, The Nightingale is named in honor of Florence Nightingale, the pioneer of modern nursing, and serves as a tribute to the city’s hard-working healthcare providers.

The Nightingale boasts oversized windows, swanky kitchens with floor to ceiling European casework, “hide-a-tables”, glass walk-in showers and a plethora of amenities, including an Amazon hub, community courtyard gathering space for BBQs, evenings around a fire pit, events, and spontaneous connections in all four seasons. Perfect for big-city dwellers accustomed to simple spaces, for those tired of paying high dollar rent, and those looking for a second home with lock and leave abilities.

Featuring modern studio, one, and two bedrooms condos, The Nightingale has been designed to align with the overarching themes of the neighborhood and will appeal to and meet the needs of a diverse group of buyers. With homes from 375 to 1,000 square feet, The Nightingale offers unique designs with many exciting options. Homes at The Nightingale start from the mid- $200s. “The price point for this community is virtually unheard of in this location. Combined with the record-low interest rates we are seeing right now, The Nightingale is an amazing option for first-time homebuyers and anyone working in the Uptown Hospital District”, said Jill Samuels, Realtor with The Highland Team and Compass.

“We are disrupting traditional real estate development and homebuilding. Our team is constantly working to find creative solutions to our city’s housing challenges. We pinpoint the place where people want to live and innovate attainable communities for now and for the future. With that in mind, we couldn’t be more excited about the Nightingale!”, said Paul Malone, president of HDC.
