Ribbon-Cutting: Eight-Story Affordable Housing Project in West Denver

On March 26, Mile High Development, Brinshore Development, JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE (JNS), Alliance Construction Solutions (ACS) and Urban Land Conservancy held a ribbon-cutting event for the completion of Sheridan Station Apartments, an eight-story affordable housing project in West Denver.

Adjacent to the RTD W Line at 13th and Sheridan, the $41 million development is the culmination of 10 years of effort to bring affordable housing to the Sheridan Light Rail Station on RTD’s W-line, which opened in 2013. The community offers 133 residential homes, including 92 one‐bedroom, 29 two‐bedroom and 12 three‐bedroom units for families making below 60% of Area Median Income (AMI).

“Community investments like the Sheridan Station Apartments are making a lasting difference in the lives of families and helping to keep Denver affordable and accessible for generations to come,” Mayor Hancock said. “This is a prime example of how we’re removing the barriers holding back our residents from the prosperity they’ve earned and fulfilling the promise of equity and opportunity in our city for all our residents.”

The project topped out in March 2020, just as the COVID-19 pandemic was setting in, impacting all facets of life in Colorado, including forcing many construction projects to pause or shut down completely. In spite of the challenges, construction never paused on Sheridan Station Apartments, as the development team pushed to get the project finished for families in the community.
