Work could begin next summer on a new multifamily community development in Littleton, Colorado, a growing suburban enclave 10 miles to the south of Denver.
A nonprofit group based in Littleton called Trailhead Community wants to build what will be a mixture of both rental units and for-sale residential space near the intersection of W. Bowles Avenue and Colorado Highway 470.
The estimated $18 million project stands out for it mission of providing housing for a mixture of adults with disabilities, seniors, and young working professionals.
Depending upon the size of the units and amenities, rents are expected to range between $650 to $2000 a month.
According to information released by the group, half of the units will be allocated for “adults with developmental disabilities.” The other 50% will go for seniors and Millennial-age professionals.
As envisioned, the complex, which will also be called Trailhead Community, will also include a common dining room, community kitchen, sport court, multimedia room, and quiet spaces.
The Louisville, Colorado-based KGA Studio Architects is the designer for the project.
The mostly 4-story building will be fronted by a circular drive-up and one-story lobby.
Trailhead Community officials say the component for disabled residents is particularly important not only given the large number of people in that category, but also because of the dearth of living space targeting that demographic.
Technology installed in the complex will include motion sensors, security cameras, and video doorbells.
