Our History

A dream and a vision endure

The community began in August of 1991 when a small group of individuals met with the intention of developing a cohousing community in the south or west suburban Denver. The group, having met through the Rocky Mountain Cohousing Association, began a land search for property .... and ultimately had the foresight and wisdom to select this beautiful 3.64 acre site that overlooks the front range of the Rocky Mountains.

The main goals of the group included designing and creating a community with home that were economical to maintain, building an energy efficient and environmentally sensitive neighborhood that would include families, single individuals and residents of all ages.

Construction begins in 1993

Construction of Highline Crossing Cohousing Community began in 1993. Over the course of the next 3 years, 40 homes, freestanding community garages and the HCCC Common House were built.

Over the years, the original plantings and the surrounding neighborhoods have matured and changed, but the Highline Crossing Cohousing Community remains a hidden gem in Littleton with views of the Rockies always in its sight.
