AVi – Under Construction | Arvada, CO

Housing and Job Training for Aging Out Foster Teens

DESCRIPTION

AVi, formerly Allison Village, is an existing 37-unit apartment community constructed in 1980, sitting on a parcel of approximately 2 acres at 5352 Allison Street, Arvada. The site is a half-mile from the Olde Town Arvada commuter rail station and the walkable amenities of Olde Town Arvada. The new development will increase density with 100 new dwelling units featuring a mixture of walkups and private entry through the building’s lobby and two-story common space, 30 units are reserved for aged-out foster youth, and 9 units for homeless veterans. 5% of AVi apartments are designed as Type A accessible to accommodate tenants with physical challenges.

Support services will be provided through an onsite job training center in partnership with Child Advocates Denver CASA who will work directly with residents to provide a safe and nurturing environment where residents can thrive emotionally, mentally, and physically in a new permanent home. The on-site support organization specializing in veterans services at AVi has will be Veterans Affairs.
