Safira Lane

  • Neighborhood: Diamond Heights
  • Location: From the west end of 27th Street to Diamond Heights Boulevard north of Duncan Street
  • Height: 35 feet

Two short sets of stairs at each end of a long, straight walkway. The name Safira is Spanish for sapphire, fitting in with the naming scheme in Diamond Heights where many streets have the English names of gemstones, and stairways have the Spanish names.

Built in the 1960s, when Diamond Heights was developed. Prior to the development of Diamond Heights, 27th Street officially continued west across Red Rock Hill and intersected with Hoffman Avenue where Diamond Heights Boulevard runs today. However, these streets were never graded or paved and mostly only existed on paper.
