Louisville is situated just slightly north of Hwy 36 and north to northeast of the Town of Superior. The City of Louisville sits east of Davidson Mesa and west to southwest of the City of Lafayette.
MY TAKE ON THIS NEIGHBORHOOD:
Values continue to climb. Steel Ranch homes built by Ryland have completely sold out, the townhomes at Steel Ranch by Boulder Creek Builders are sold, with 2 new projects from Boulder Creek Neighborhoods finished in 2017 and 2018: Lanterns & DELO. Markel Homes' "North End" neighborhood just across from Steel Ranch near Balfour retirement community is selling briskly.
Louisville's history goes back to a man named Louis Nawatny. In the late 1800's coal mining was the primary industry, and around the time of the first mine opening in 1877 (the Welch Mine), Louis Nawatny platted a portion of land and named the town after himself. (hence the
name is pronounced like Lewis rather than the famous French leader King Louis). The town was incorporated in 1882, and now there are about 25,000 residents in an area covering almost eight square miles.
The area includes approximately 1700 acres of open space, and the elevation is just a little over 5500 feet above sea level on average.
WHAT’S NEW TODAY:
While the community continues to thrive, many new businesses and restaurants have opened up in the last year or so to begin to, dare I say, rival Boulder's Pearl Street in some respects. Jobs seem plentiful in the area with growth in that arena at the Colorado Technology Center off of Dillon Road, Interlocken in Broomfield just across Hwy 36, and many of the Park-n-Ride locations are expanding to meet the demand for commuters. It's still a strong economy for the Louisville area!
One of the favorite destinations for many locals is the Community Park near downtown.
WHETHER IT’S LOCAL FAVORITE RESTAURANTS like The Empire Lounge, 740 Front, The Huckleberry, The Melting Pot, Via Toscana, Zucca, Lucky Pie, Sweet Cow, LuLu's Barbecue, and Hana Japanese Bistro. The famous Waterloo has moved into the old Rex Theatre Building, and now has a huge rooftop deck! Whatever your taste, there's definitely a wide selection of choices in dining to be found in Louisville.
Another great place to explore is the Coal Creek Trail which runs through Louisville. Part of the trail is immediately south of the famous Community Park at 955 Bella Vista Drive. The park includes a destination location for many area dog owners.
