Estes Park Housing Authority
Estes Park, Colorado
$8,893,000; 48-unit attainable rental housing development on a 5.5-acre sloping site, consisting of stacked flat apartments and townhome style units and serving residents at 30%, 40%, 50% and 60% of the area median income. The site design is based on a combination of 6-plex, 1- and 2-story apartment buildings, with 1-bedroom/1-bath and 2-bedroom/2-bath units, and 2-story townhomes of 2-bedroom/2-bath and 3-bedroom/2-bath units, ranging from 810 to 1,410 sq. ft. A 2,000 sq. ft. community building includes staff offices and a large neighborhood meeting room, with a partially covered, elevated veranda that overlooks a playground and large community green.
The buildings are designed along a curvilinear private road that encircles the centrally located community building and community green, and are intended to complement the adjacent Talons Pointe development but provide a unique neighborhood character. The project is designed for Enterprise Green Communities certification.
Professional services included use and site plan approvals through the Town of Estes Park, and full architectural and engineering design services.
