Four Corners Development is Growing in Colorado!

On November 9th Four Corners Development, LLC was awarded Highland Trails, a development in Littleton, by CHFA in the 4% LIHTC round. This award consists of allocation of both State and Federal tax credits. Highland Trails will be a new construction project for Seniors. Highland Trails will represent the first affordable senior housing development to be built in west Littleton, unincorporated Jefferson County, serving the 55+ population. As a suburb of Denver, Littleton is part of the Denver-Aurora metropolitan area and the Front Range Urban Corridor.

The 88-unit new construction, 4-story structure will serve seniors over an expanse of income levels – AMI mix includes 23% of units at 20-30% AMI; 13% at40% AMI; 16% at 50% AMI; 20% at 60% AMI; and 28% at 70-80% AMI. Foothills Regional Housing (aka Jefferson County Housing Authority) has awarded 20 Project Based Vouchers for the very-low-income seniors at 20-30% AMI.

Construction will include exterior stone and Hardie siding, along with elevator service. A secure single-point card access will open to well-appointed common amenities centralized on the main level, and will include a fitness room, computer/library room, community room with entertainment kitchen, and wellness/services office for general clinics; blood pressure screenings, and nutritional consultations provided through senior service providers. Units will range in size from 739 to 942 sq. ft. with 9’ ceilings and include full kitchens with E-star appliances, washer/dryer, ceiling fans, linen closet, step-in shower, large windows and closets, individual heating and cooling, and private patio/balcony. Outdoor amenities include greenspace, bocce court, pavilion for sheltered outdoor dining and entertaining. Residents will also have access to an adjacent large community garden at Waterstone Community Church. The project will be certified under Zero Energy Ready Home (ZEHR) program and Enterprise Green Communities.

Four Corners Development has also reached out to local service providers and organizations who have agreed to provide resources and services to the residents: Seniors’ Resource Center; Love INC; Denver Regional Council of Governments; HealthSet; Centura Health; Jefferson County Senior Reach; Waterstone Community Church; and Active Minds, ensures this project supports Jefferson County’s Consolidated Plan and Aging Well Plan. These plans focus on meeting basic senior needs, housing, physical and mental health, wellness/prevention, caregiving and support services, social and civic engagement, and transportation and mobility challenges. Seniors’ Resource Center, Love INC and Waterstone Community Church will provide no cost/low-cost transportation services.

We are looking forward to another successful project in Colorado!
