Urban Land Conservancy has sold almost an acre of land to the City and County of Denver for its new public library! ULC purchased the 2 acre Mile High Vista property on West Colfax in March 2011 using Denver’s Transit-Oriented Development Fund and has since invested another $500,000 into the improvements. Two portions of the site have now been sold for development of a new library and workforce housing. Infrastructure work will begin in early June, and the library is expecting to break ground later this summer. Read more about this much anticipated project!
After purchasing a one acre property at the Evans Light Rail Station a year ago using Denver’s TOD Fund, ULC has sold this site to Medici Communities for the mixed use development that includes 50 permanently affordable homes. Construction is expected to begin in a few weeks and will open for residents in Spring of 2013.
Since 2002, Medici has been constructing affordable housing developments to benefit neighborhood in metro Denver. This particular sustainable development, named Evans Station Lofts, not only provides workforce housing directly across from this busy RTD light rail station, it brings an economic boost to the surrounding community. Wells Fargo is the investor for this first family housing tax credits development at an existing light rail station.
