to Gain Much-Needed Housing
Denver, Colorado, April 25, 2012 – Four affordable housing communities are breaking ground after receiving aid from the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, an indirect Federal subsidy used to finance the development of affordable rental housing for low-income households.
“These building projects just don’t happen independent of the LIHTC allocation,”
Shaw recently broke ground to build Shoshone Senior Residences, a 2-story 34 unit, 30,000+ square foot building located in Denver’s Sunnyside neighborhood. The affordable senior apartment community, developed by Newsed and The Burgwyn Company, and designed by OZ Architecture, is the next phase of the Chaffee Park Senior Residence community.
Breaking ground in May is Caribou Apartments Phase II, a 96 unit affordable community in Ft. Collins that includes three buildings and garage parking. Breaking ground by early summer 2012 is Libretto Senior Housing in Brighton, a building project that includes renovating an existing library into 28 units of independent senior living apartments. Hendricks Communities is developing both communities with design by Miles-Lambert Architecture and construction by Shaw.
Also scheduled to begin construction early summer 2012 is Glenwood Green, a 60 unit affordable housing community in Glenwood Springs that is developed by Steele Properties LLC and designed by Paul Bergner Architect.
