Urban Land Conservancy purchased the Curtis Park Community Center in January 2012. Denver’s Office of Economic Development (OED) made the purchase possible. Located five blocks from several bus routes and four blocks from a light rail station, the center provides additional affordability along transit corridors.
Family Star Montessori occupied the community center for five years, finally purchasing the building in 2017. In the meantime, ULC will continue to own the land under the school in a 99 year ground lease. This is the fourth property to join our community land trust, furthermore ensuring long term affordability for future generations.
