In 32 years of Erickson Living, the company has never built a clubhouse that includes apartment homes. Until now.

Crest, the Erickson Living community in Highlands Ranch, Colo., recently announced that its newest clubhouse, High Line Overlook, will open late this summer featuring 30 apartment homes as well as a host of other amenities. 

“Due to the unprecedented demand for our vibrant, maintenance-free lifestyle, we have added a third building with fabulous amenities, including new apartment homes,” says Sales Director Jason Atwell.

The proximity of these apartment homes to amenity-rich community space makes them a major draw, he adds. 

Unique community concepts

The new building will add a 230-seat Arts and Enrichment Center with a stage and theater seating on the terrace level. “This can be used for worship services, concerts, plays, and other events,” says Atwell.

The large Red Rocks Catering Room, also on the terrace level, will add space for private parties, events, and meetings. “This is a nice feature as additional community space,” Atwell says. “I can see this getting a lot of use.”

Opposite the catering room, Burton’s Steakhouse will serve residents from all over the community. The restaurant’s name honors Wind Crest’s first resident, Clarence Burton, a beloved member of the community.

The first floor houses the community’s third fitness center, a complement to the main fitness center in the first neighborhood. Above the Arts and Enrichment Center, the High Line Terrace Courtyard provides beautiful views of the mountains and adds a delightful outdoor venue for parties and events. 

“All of these concepts reflect the type of lifestyle our residents live,” says Atwell, “full of vigor and appreciation for life and our stunning surroundings.”

Floor plan mix

High Line Overlook’s 30 apartment homes will be available in a variety of floor plans. Atwell says they will include the same designs as in the community’s two newest residence buildings, McHenry’s Crossing and Parry Landing, with a few new choices. 

“We are offering the open, spacious floor plans that have been so well received,” he says. 

The fixtures will also mimic those in McHenry’s Crossing and Parry Landing: brushed nickel hardware, granite countertops, stainless steel appliance packages, and luxury vinyl plank flooring “that people have been raving about,” Atwell says.

The hardwood-like flooring resists scratches while still providing the classic, upscale look and feel of its natural counterpart. As is common at Wind Crest, most homes in High Line Overlook feature views of the Rocky Mountain Front Range. 

“Just as the homes in McHenry’s Crossing and Parry Landing sold quickly, we expect these to sell even faster due to the limited quantity,” Atwell says. “They will be especially appealing to people who want to be close to amenities and the social scene.”
