Project Size
68,217 sf
Denver Housing Authority, in partnership with Volunteers of America, has formed the Lowry Affordable Housing Partners to construct 72 units of affordable housing in the Boulevard One community at the corner of Archer Place and South Oneida Street.
Lowry Apartments will consist of four-story wood framed construction, ground floor community space, surface parking, roof-top solar array, and a 72-unit mix, which includes 20 units for the homeless.
  • 41 one-bedroom units
  • 23 two-bedroom units
  • eight three-bedroom units
Lowry Apartments’ design is based on a contemporary reinterpretation of the existing Lowry context and uses sustainable design and healthy living practices. It will provide permanent affordable housing opportunities to families earning approximately 30-50% of the average median income and will include subsidies for transitional residents moving out of homelessness.
During preconstruction, the 68,217 sf project was brought into budget through an intensive value engineering effort that maintained all aspects of the orginal program. It is being designed and built to meet Enterprise Green Community Criteria.
The entire Boulevard One development is the last new neighborhood at Lowry — once the tail end of historic Runway One at the former Lowry Air Force Base. It features walk-to neighborhood retail and offices, multiple parks and a community plaza, and paths within and around the development, providing connectivity to Crestmoor Park, the surrounding neighborhoods, and the regional bike system.
