Mar 11Preserving the Future
Affordable housing might be a trendy buzz phrase, but it has been the mission of Mercy Housing for the past 40 years. While we are constantly adapting to a changing landscape of needs within our community, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to providing safe, affordable housing with resident-focused programming from the beginning.
To do that, we must build new affordable housing communities in high-need areas, while reinvesting in the communities we already call home. That means maintaining, repairing, and often remodeling homes already in the Mercy Housing family.
For the last two years, Grace Apartments in central Denver has been undergoing a massive remodel to improve the resident experience, increase sustainability, and improve building efficiencies. Grace Apartments has 53 apartments homes featuring 2-and 3-bedroom apartments to a very diverse population of refugees and immigrants, primarily from southeast Asian countries like Bhutan, Nepal, and Burma. After the remodel, residents will enjoy granite countertops, new flooring, appliances, and more in their renovated homes.
Completion of Grace Apartments is scheduled for Fall 2022.
Clare Gardens is also getting a fresh new look! With 128- unit townhome apartments, this large family property in the Denver Highlands neighborhood has undergone a massive renovation. Aside from interior renovations like new appliances, new cabinetry, and modernizing the bathrooms, the apartment homes are also receiving new exterior cladding, windows, and doors that are truly transforming the look and feel of this community.
Completion of Clare Gardens is scheduled for Winter 2022.
The work Mercy Housing is doing to preserve affordable housing is a critical step to end the affordable housing crisis and maintaining neighborhood stability for future generations. We look forward to celebrating these milestones with you during the coming year!
