Race TOD


Elyria-Swansea Neighborhood

Urban Land Conservancy purchased Race TOD in April of 2015 with support from the City and County of Denver. This also marked ULC’s second acquisition using the Calvert Foundation’s Facility Fund. The transit oriented development (TOD) is located approximately two blocks from RTD’s proposed 48th and Brighton commuter rail station on the N Line, which is expected to open in late 2019.

In 2018, ULC announced Columbia Ventures, LLC as our development partner for the $250 million TOD, with plans to include both permanently affordable housing options and community serving commercial space. This aligns directly with our mission to provide affordable rental and community space for residents in the Elyria-Swansea neighborhood. Race TOD will also be the new home of Clinica Tepayac, a health clinic providing culturally competent care and health services to the medically underserved.
