Local Denver Developer, Architect, and General Contractor Break Ground on Townhome Community

Denver, CO – Local Denver developer, Highland Development Company (HDC), local architect, RHAP architecture + planning, and local general contractor, DIRC Homes, break ground on 12 low-maintenance townhomes adjacent to the Knox Light Rail station in Denver.

“Our team is thrilled to be breaking ground at The Commons at King and becoming a member of the Villa Park community,” said Randy Henckel, president of DIRC Homes. “These townhomes are will be a great addition to our portfolio and the Denver market.”

“The Denver real estate market is rapidly expanding, with average home prices increasing nearly every month. Companies across all sectors continue to relocate here for the quality of life Colorado provides, so the need for attainable housing has never been greater.”, said Paul Malone, president at HDC, “The Commons at King is in a fantastic location, directly across from the Lakewood Dry Gulch and the Knox Light Rail station. We can’t wait to see these attainably-priced homes come to life in the Villa Park neighborhood as the Denver way of life continues to create one of the top places to live in the entire United States.”

The community is located in the Villa Park neighborhood, walkable to Sloan’s Lake and Edgewater. Residents will find the Knox Light Rail station one block away, providing access to Union Station in just five stops. The Lakewood Dry Gulch is right across the street, with ample green space to enjoy, along with easy access to countless bike and walking trails in the Denver area. These low-maintenance homes feature quaint front porches, rooftop decks, and a shared outdoor courtyard. The Commons at King is an ideal opportunity to live in a secluded neighborhood near downtown Denver with room to roam.

RHAP architecture + planning designed two studio floor plans and ten townhome plans for The Commons at King. “This project provides a unique opportunity to own a home right next to green space and with easy access to downtown Denver; the Light Rail station is just a three-minute walk from your front door. Thanks to the variety of product types and price points, The Commons at King will be a great fit for a diverse community of residents, whether they are first-time homebuyers or empty nesters.”, said Daniel Rotner, Principal Architect at RHAP architecture + planning.

The Commons at King will feature quartz countertops, state of the art appliances, and luxury flooring. “This community has an incredible location. Not only is the Lakewood Dry Gulch Trail right outside your front door which nearly guarantees views for a lifetime, you also have easy access to Downtown Denver, Sloan’s Lake, and Edgewater and the Knox Light Rail stop,” said Jill Samuels, Realtor with The Highland Team and Compass.
