VMWP Denver Finished 2020 with a Grand Slam!

Posted on: December 31, 2020

VMWP has good news for our non-profit clients after a challenging year. All four of VMWP’s submitted projects in Colorado were funded for the highly-competitive Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits: Allison Village, Mercy Colfax, Crossing Pointe South, and Montbello FreshLo. This represents 1/3 of the affordable housing units awarded by CHFA in 2020!

Allison Village Residential Building Exterior Render

Allison Village

Allison Village is an existing 37-unit apartment community constructed in 1980. The new Allison Village 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. The project creates several interesting gathering spaces along the urban park, utilizing the 2-story bridge and the second-story outdoor deck as core design features.

 

Mercy Colfax

Mercy Colfax is a .82 acre, 81 unit affordable family-oriented dwelling redevelopment. The site is located along a major transportation corridor within the East Colfax Neighborhood, a mixed-use urban district. Approximately 5,500 square feet of ground-floor space will house an early childhood education center (ECE). Services will be provided by Mercy Housing for all residents and wrap-around services will be provided to the children attending the ECE and their families.

 

Crossing Pointe South

Crossing Pointe South is an affordable family housing community located adjacent to the Colorado & 104th St. light rail station in Thornton, Colorado. Though the affordable housing project is within walking distance of community-serving retail, the site is bound by permanent open space on two sides. The building features and courtyards both encourage community building and promote a healthy lifestyle by providing spaces for interaction and healthy activities like vegetable gardens and gathering plazas.

 

Montbello FreshLo

The mixed-use Montbello FreshLo building redevelops an infill 1.6 acre former RTD bus storage site, that is adjacent to commercial, residential, healthcare and open space uses. The 7 story structure consists of 5 levels of 97 units of family affordable housing sitting on top of two levels of a fresh food grocery. Montbello FreshLo is designed to achieve not just multiple community benefits, but also achieve a National Green Building Standard Silver Rating with a full focus on Health and Wellness.
