Celebrating the Grand Opening of Northfield Commons in Fort Collins

Located in Landmark Homes’ New Neighborhood Development, Northfield Commons offers comprehensive onsite resident services and convenient access to nearby amenities.

April 23, 2024– Mercy Housing, Inc., the nation’s largest affordable housing nonprofit, headquartered in Denver, CO., celebrated the grand opening of its newest affordable housing community, Northfield Commons. Located just five minutes from downtown Fort Collins, Northfield Commons features 84 apartment homes for families with low incomes.

“We believe that everyone deserves access to a stable and affordable home, which is why Mercy Housing is committed to creating communities where residents can thrive,” said Mercy Housing Mountain Plains President, Shelly Marquez. “Northfield Commons helps to address the critical need for more affordable housing in Fort Collins as the city continues to grow.”

“My daughter and I moved from another rental not too far away,” Northfield Commons resident, Ivan Ankeny added. “I love living here, and my daughter and I are now working with staff to help get programming started…we’ve even had a few brainstorming sessions,” he continued.

The new 77,000-square-foot property includes seven buildings with 12 apartment homes each. It features affordable one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments that are all income-restricted to those making between 30% and 60% of the area median income. For a family of four, that would be between $34,100 and $68,160.

Onsite Programming for Residents  

Mercy Housing will run the onsite resident services programming and is thrilled to bring resident service programming to communities in Fort Collins. These programs will provide access to resources for health & wellness, housing success, financial well-being, and out-of-school time. Additionally, residents will have access to additional amenities, such as the nearby pool/fitness center thanks to Northfield Metropolitan Metro District 1 and Landmark Development.

Speakers at the Grand Opening celebration included Shelly Marquez, President of Mercy Housing Mountain Plains, Cris White, CEO of Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, Fort Collins District 1 City Councilmember, Susan Gutowsky, and Julie Brewen, CEO of development partner Housing Catalyst.

For over forty years, Mercy Housing has integrated health and community services with many of the 350 affordable properties it owns and operates in 21 states. By increasing access to essential resources residents can thrive while they live, work, learn, and age.
