Affordable housing complex underway in metro Denver – Denver Business Journal

Construction is underway on a $19.2 million housing project that will bring 142 units of affordable housing to Adams County.

Baker School Apartments, located at 3555 W. 64th Ave. will consist of four three-story buildings.

There will be 48 one-bedroom, 72 two-bedroom and 22 three-bedroom units

The project received more than $1 million from Adams County Housing and Urban Development funds.

A spokesperson from Crossland Construction said the pricing of the units has not been determined yet.

Various services, including pop-up health screenings, financial planning assistance and after-school programs will be offered at the apartments by several groups, including the Adams County Housing Authority.

Amenities will include a fitness center, community room and dog park.

Parkih Stevens Architects designed the project, and Crossland Construction is the general contractor.

In March, two other affordable housing projects in the Denver metro made their way onto the Denver Business Journal’s Crane Watch map.

East Range Crossings, a $65 million project, will bring 252 units at 60 percent or less of area median income to northeast Denver.

Paris Family Apartments, a $12.9 million project, broke ground in Aurora. It will offer 39 units at 30 to 50 percent of area median income.
