The trio of buildings that have been opening at Wind Crest since last November concludes this month with The High Line Overlook. The building, which combines 30 new maintenance-free apartment homes with community space and amenities, is scheduled to open mid-month as new residents begin to move in.

The High Line Overlook adds the 230-seat Arts and Enrichment Center with a stage and theater seating on the terrace level. 

The center also houses the community’s TV studio, where residents will be able to assist in television show production—a staple at other Erickson Living communities. 

“The TV studio will allow us to do live broadcasts to the entire community of events happening in the Arts and Enrichment Center,” says Community Resources Manager Craig Ellsworth. “It’s also an opportunity for better communication with our residents.”

The large Red Rocks Catering Room, also on the terrace level of The High Line Overlook, adds space for private parties, events, and meetings. “This is a nice feature as additional community space,” says Sales Director Jason Atwell. “I can see this getting a lot of use by our residents.”

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 of The High Line Overlook houses a third fitness center, a complement to the main fitness center in the first neighborhood as well as a second fitness center in McHenry’s Crossing, which opened November 2014. 

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, events, and happy hours. 

“Our original clubhouse holds a fun Friday night happy hour on the patio throughout the summer months. Now, we have multiple ideal places for neighbors to hold their happy hours and other events,” says Sales Associate Jenn Anderson.

Floor plans for every lifestyle

In addition to all the amenities, The High Line Overlook adds 30 new apartment homes, including 8 brand new floor plans. 

“We have a variety of floor plans that fit different lifestyles and budgets,” says Sales Counselor Molly Thorne-Dhieux.

Homes in The High Line Overlook, Parry Landing, and McHenry’s Crossing feature modern fixtures: 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 The High Line Overlook feature spectacular views of the Front Range. Others face the neighboring golf course’s rolling greens. Four homes on the first floor of The High Line Overlook open to the terrace patio with views of the High Line Canal and the Front Range.  

Maintenance-free living

Regardless of the floor plan or the view, all homes at Wind Crest get the full maintenance-free treatment. No more worrying about pipes bursting in winter, the furnace going out, or the hot water heater breaking down. 

“We take care of all home and yard maintenance, which is a huge weight off of people’s shoulders—especially if they’ve owned a house for 20 or 30 years,” Atwell says. “Now they have time to take part in all the activities we offer.”

Aside from home and yard maintenance, the monthly service package also includes a flexible dining plan for use in Wind Crest’s six restaurants, use of all amenities, all utilities including extended cable TV, 24-hour security and emergency response, scheduled shuttle service, and door-side trash collection and recycling. 

Ellsworth says many residents pick up hobbies or volunteering that they’ve wanted to do for years. “They just never had the time, and now they do,” he says. Woodworking, quilting, volunteering—it’s all possible.

Time to take advantage

With all that Wind Crest’s second neighborhood offers, it’s no wonder almost all apartment homes have already sold. McHenry’s Crossing is sold out, and as of mid-August, Parry Landing and The High Line Overlook had a select few homes available. 

“We encourage people to reserve now if they want the opportunity to have a brand new apartment home in our new neighborhood,” Atwell says. 

However, he adds, that doesn’t eliminate the possibility of moving to Wind Crest. “Homes become available in neighborhood one,” he says, “and those are our best-value apartments because they are less expensive than our newest homes, yet you have access to all the same amenities, restaurants, and services—not to mention the active, maintenance-free lifestyle.

“The beauty of Wind Crest is that wherever you choose,” Atwell adds, “you can’t go wrong.”
