ULC Evans Station Lofts

Project Details

Evans Station Lofts is located at 2140 S Delaware Street in Denver, less than 1 block from the Evans Light Rail Station. The project was a collaborative effort by the Urban Land Conservancy (ULC) and for-profit developer Medici Communities LLC, resulting in 50 units of workforce housing and 10,000 square feet of commercial space at the Evans Light Rail Station. With units featuring 10-foot ceilings, glass-tile accents, a community room with laptop computers and free wi-fi, exercise room, a rooftop barbecue area, and a shared car for hourly rental, this development shatters the typical image of affordable housing and received the Mayor’s Design Award for design and place making in 2013. The apartments are one- and two-bedroom units with rents of $380 to $850 per month, and the commercial space, managed by the Denver Shared Spaces program, is currently occupied by the Kim Robards Dance Company. ULC purchased the land in 2011 for $1.2 million using Denver’s Transit-Oriented Development Fund, a loan fund that was created to acquire and preserve land near transit stations for affordable housing and other community benefits. The land was then developed by Medici Communities with $1M in low-income housing tax credits.
