Lowry

Lowry is bordered by 11th Avenue to the North, Alameda Avenue to  the South, Dayton/Havana to the East, and Quebec/Oneida/Monaco to the  West.

Formerly an Air Force base, Lowry has been transformed into a model  New Urbanist community of diverse and vibrant traditional-style  neighborhoods each offering a distinctive flare. A dazzling array of  residences includes single family, luxury customs, townhomes, patio  homes, condominiums, apartments, and a retirement community.

The mixed-use Town Center District artfully blends traditional and  contemporary designs, while in the West Neighborhood, historic housing  has been skillfully renovated and seamlessly integrated with new  construction. Lowry’s new public library is located in West.


Traversed by trails, green space, broad boulevards, and parkways where  pedestrians reign supreme beckoned by inviting public spaces, Lowry  boasts nearly 800 acres of parks and recreational areas, thirty-five  percent of which are devoted to native plants and grasses.


Lawrence Phipps’s lavish facility for the treatment of tuberculosis,  established in the early 1900s, came to be considered one of the best  medical centers in the nation, before newer, more modern facilities  forced its closure in 1932.

Subsequently, The Army Air Corps established a base for training in  aerial photography on the eve of World War II. By War’s end, 41,000  students had graduated from Lowry Air Corps Technical School.

Lowry remained key training and educational facility through the Cold  War years until its closure in 1988, but its legacy as a center for  learning, culture, and healthful outdoor living continues to this day.

Proud recipient of the Governor’s Award for Smart Growth, Lowry is  considered a model community for urban-infill projects across the  country.
