About the Project:
The proposed housing development is a public-private partnership between Boulder County Housing Authority, Longmont Downtown Development Authority (LDDA) and a local business owner. The development is a repurposed 1.2-acre site with 73 affordable apartment homes providing workforce and supportive housing, office space for property management, commercial space for a workforce enterprise, and a 263-space parking garage for property and area residents, and downtown employees and visitors.
The community will be located at 518 Coffman Street in downtown Longmont, adjacent to the St. Vrain Community Hub, the County’s integrated “one-stop” approach to services delivery providing financial benefits, integrated public and behavioral health programs, personal finance and education, employment training and resources, and children and family services. The proximity of the Hub to the residents supports stable housing and healthier households.
