As a recent recipient of the Governor's Award for Smart Growth, Lowry is considered a model community for urban-infill projects across the country. Formerly an Air Force base, the neighborhood has been transformed into a model New Urbanist community comprised of diverse, traditional-style neighborhoods. Lowry’s dazzling array of residences includes single family, luxury customs, townhomes, patio homes, condominiums, apartments and a retirement community, making it the ideal homebase for any family. Surrounded by green spaces, running trails, broad boulevards and convenient parkways, Lowry’s pedestrians have full freedom to explore inviting public spaces. Lowry boasts nearly 800 acres of parks and recreational areas, 35% of which are devoted to native plants and grasses.
