Unison Housing Partners led a nearly $12 million renovation of this 164-unit affordable housing complex, including installation of all new energy efficient heating/cooling systems and appliances. The renovation has not only dramatically improved living situations for residents and helped save residents up to 50% on their monthly utility costs, but also improved the neighborhood where Aztec Villa is located, one of the most economically disadvantaged areas in the City of Thornton.
Sustainable construction practices were used to rehabilitate and modernize this 1970’s era, 200-unit apartment property located in a fast-growing area of Thornton near I-25. As part of the RTD FasTracks expansion, a light rail station is less than two miles from the Village of Yorkshire, providing this family-oriented community with enhanced mobility and access to nearby retailers, government services, a hospital, schools, childcare and recreation centers.
Located on the northwest corner of 71st Ave. and Federal Blvd., this mixed-use development features 70 affordable housing units, 16,000 square feet of rentable commercial space and the new Unison Housing Partners office. Alto also provides residents with on-site support services designed to minimize the barriers to maintaining self-sufficiency and enhance residents’ living experiences.
This transit-oriented development is part of Thornton’s Crossroads Station Area Master Plan and is an “Opportunity Site” for providing critical affordable housing for families and seniors in need of housing options with wrap-around services. Located at 104th Avenue and Colorado Blvd., Crossing Pointe will provide its residents with easy access to employment, shopping and other activities.
