Answering the Call for More Affordable Housing

Across the United States, the need for affordable housing has never been more important. To help meet this demand, Mercy Housing has been busy working on many new developments across the Mountain Plains region. Safe, stable housing helps provide a foundation for success, and we are happy to be expanding in several locations!

The Rose on Colfax continues to take shape in the East Colfax neighborhood of Denver. The 82-unit family property will be our first mixed-used development in the region to offer an early childhood education center on the ground floor. The Mile High United Way Early Learning Center will give both Mercy Housing residents and the community at large a safe, affordable childcare option.

Additionally, The Rose on Colfax’s unique location will provide easy access to multi-modal transportation options to residents. Doors are expected to open in Spring 2023.

Many thanks to Alliance Construction, City and County of Denver – Department of Housing Stability, Colorado Department of Local Affairs, Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, Mile High Early Learning, Mile High United Way, Sugar Creek Capital, Van Meter Williams Pollack, and Wells Fargo for partnering with us on this amazing community.

 There is nothing common about Mercy Housing’s latest housing development in Fort Collins, Colorado, Northfield Commons.

With the help of Dohn Construction, Mercy Housing broke ground on the 84-unit family community in April. The development has 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units affordable to households making between 30% to 60% of the area median income. When completed in fall 2023, Northfield Commons will include a community clubhouse, basketball court, playground, walking track, and an on-site leasing office. The project is a part of the new Northfield neighborhood development of for-sale townhomes located just north of downtown Fort Collins and along a regional bike trail.

Thanks to the many partners who made this project possible; Alm2s Architects, Bank of America, the City of Fort Collins, Colorado Department of Local Affairs, Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, Dohn Construction, Landmark Homes, and Housing Catalyst.

Estimated completion of Northfield Commons is scheduled for Spring 2023.

Mercy Housing and Maricopa County in Arizona have partnered together to address homelessness in a huge way. The County awarded Mercy Housing Mountain Plains $9 million from their federal pandemic-relief funds to support the development of a 144-home affordable housing community in Glendale for people aged 55 and over.

The development will have 115 one-bedroom apartments and 29 two-bedroom apartment homes. Additionally, the community will include off-street parking, a community room, a reading library, a fitness room, onsite laundry rooms outfitted with washers and dryers, and a covered outdoor courtyard.

Completion is anticipated in early 2025.
