The Castle on the Hill

The Legacy of Union Printers Home

Since 1892 Union Printers Home has been a landmark in Colorado Springs. Historically known as “The Castle on the Hill,” it was established as a place to “relax, restore and heal.”

Once a home to members of the International Typographical Union, the 26-acre campus hosts a series of historically significant structures that are situated in a parklike setting off Union Boulevard in southeast Colorado Springs and overlooking Memorial Park and the vista of Pikes Peak.  

(1)        THE SITE

During its 130-year history, Union Printers Home has been a destination for healing, a prominent landmark within the city, and a curiosity for generations of Colorado Springs residents and visitors. UPH Partners purchased the property in 2021 to protect its most significant historic assets and to breathe new life into the site. Developing a carefully crafted master plan, UPH Partners will steward a redevelopment strategy of the Union Printers Home into a destination for the City of Colorado Springs, the Front Range and beyond.

It will be an authentic mixed-use neighborhood and a source of inspiration and community pride.

(2)        THE VISION

In 2021 UPH Partners, comprised of longtime local philanthropic and civic-minded investors, purchased Union Printers Home to preserve, revitalize and energize the campus and its iconic buildings. Due to the significance of this property in Colorado Springs’ history and its potential to positively impact the surrounding neighborhoods and the larger region, the group partnered together to take on this ambitious redevelopment opportunity. Over the coming months and years, they will work to create a vision for new uses and the long-term stewardship of the land.      

The forthcoming master plan will blend elements of adaptive reuse with new construction encompassing a mix of potential uses including hospitality, retail, commercial, dining, entertainment, and residential. As a community asset, the campus will be available to the public and visitors alike with open park-like qualities.

Follow the journey with us as we embark on a master planning process that reimagines Union Printers Home, creating a new and exciting vision for bringing back the glory of these iconic structures and transforming the campus into a dynamic and vibrant civic destination.
