The Edge is a 68,000 sf ground-up facility with 70-units of affordable housing for working families and survivors of the 2012 High Park Fire and September 2013 floods, plus permanent supportive housing for homeless veterans.
The facility consists of six three-story wood-framed buildings and a single-story clubhouse. 60 of the units are set aside for income-qualified individuals; the remaining ten units are reserved for homeless veterans.
The campus also contains a clubhouse, urban gardens, tot lot, walking trails, and open space, with immediate access to the neighboring business park, retail, and professional services.
The project is designed to blend with the professional business center located on the south edge of the property.
The Edge is designed and constructed to meet Enterprise Green Communities Criteria. Financing includes Low Income Housing Tax Credits, municipal and private funding, and the federally funded Community Development Block Grant Disaster Relief program (CDBG-DR) administered by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs.
