Original development of Hilltop had much more to do with water and transportation than anything else. The City Lateral Canal, branching off the Highline Canal, established a secure water source for the area and the streetcar line secured transportation in the area. Development of the Hilltop neighborhood soon followed.
Not only is ‘Hill’ top one of the highest points in Denver but it’s also considered one of the wealthiest and most sought after neighborhoods. Large lots and abundant tree-lined streets accentuate the beautiful Tudor, Georgians and two-story Colonials. New builds have come and you can clearly identify the luxurious custom homes with large lots that dot the neighborhood.
