Denver Metro Village provides affordable senior housing. The project includes the construction of a new 4-story, cast-in-place parking structure that will include covered parking for 200 vehicles, a maintenance shop, 7,900 sq. ft. of ground floor amenity and commercial/retail space and 19 new multifamily units. A second component includes the renovation of 191 units in an existing 18-story building built-in 1971.
The existing 19-story tower is occupied during renovation. Occupied construction during the COVID-19 pandemic requires strict protocols and safety checks to ensure that the vulnerable senior population is protected. The MW team is vacating three to four floors at a time on a rolling basis to allow asbestos abatement followed by unit demolition to occur before the unit mechanical, electrical, plumbing and finish renovations. The scope of renovation work includes removing asbestos, upgrading all fixtures, flooring, a mix of new and restored cabinetry, major plumbing system upgrades, new fire alarm, sprinkler and smoke control systems, as well as new common area amenities. To date, senior residents are overjoyed with the upgrades and new units they are moving into.
The project will comply with the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria.
