A senior housing complex built in 1971 in Denver is making plans to add nearly two dozen new housing units to its property, as well as building both ground floor office and retail space.
Located in the city’s Sloan Lake neighborhood, the Denver Metro Village at 1523 N. Quitman Street is an 18-story highrise that houses nearly two hundred studio and one-bedroom apartments.
According to plans submitted to the City of Denver, the expansion would see the construction of a four-story building going up in the parking lot on the west side of the 18-story structure.
Plans additionally call for parking space at all four levels of the expansion, with room enough for a total of 185 vehicles.
Joining the two structures together would result in the building of a new lobby, as well as fitness space and a maintenance shop.
The Denver Metro Village is open for seniors aged 62 and up and is located in a neighborhood that has seen the construction of several multi-story apartment complexes in the last two years.
