Rocky Mountain Youth Housing
Type of Construction
Partner, Plan, Build Better.
Rox's Place Supportive Youth Housing is an 11,830 sf phased, occupied renovation of a three-story brick mid-century apartment building in Denver. The 50+ year old structure contains studio apartments, household kitchen and a basement and mechanical room.
Renovation scope includes upgrades of individual living units with new drywall, tile, flooring, new toilet/bath accessories; plumbing, mechanical, fire protection, and electrical retrofits; and life safety/ ADA upgrades.
Exterior renovations include cast in place site concrete, masonry tuck pointing, miscellaneous metals, architectural woodwork, door and window replacement.
The facility serves as transitional housing program for formerly homeless youth aged 18-23 who are transitioning out of foster care. Careful construction phasing allowed the building to remain occupied during construction.
The project was partially funded through City of Denver Office of Economic Development.
