ArtWay North

Denver

Northeast Park Hill Neighborhood

ULC purchased the 9.4-acre Park Hill Village West (PHVW) site in 2013 using the Denver TOD Fund. This was ULC’s largest acquisition using Denver’s TOD Fund. Located at the 40th & Colorado station along RTD’s A Line commuter rail, this is an area of northeast Denver where many families lack access to affordable housing, high-performing schools and quality healthcare.  This investment opportunity created a new partnership between ULC, Piton, and Gary Community Investments to support ULC’s development plans to create community benefits.

Park Hill Station apartments opened in 2016. These 156 permanently affordable homes are phase one of this master site development, with future phases of construction to be planned upon community outreach and engagement and could include up to 300,000 sf of community and commercial space as well as additional housing.

Thriftway

Denver

Westwood Neighborhood

Located on Morrison Road in southwest Denver, this property holds great significance for the Westwood neighborhood. The Trust for Public Land (TPL) was critical to this purchase. Thriftway building served many purposes since its construction in the 1950s, but for 15 years was abandoned which led to a building reputation for crime. ULC demolished the building in summer 2014, and with it, the negative sentiments that controlled the site. Westwood Unidos, a resident-led neighborhood collaborative, led a community visioning process with ULC to determine an interim use for the site. In June 2017 ULC celebrated the opening of the Thriftway Pocket Park. Long term plans for the site are to create a beneficial development that directly addresses community needs.
