Warren Village at Alameda

The Pathway to a Third Warren Village Facility

As the cost of living in the Denver area continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, thousands of hard-working families are finding themselves unable to secure safe and affordable housing in our city. Warren Village, in partnership with the Denver Housing Authority and the City and County of Denver, is stepping up to offer a solution – a new supportive housing campus at 1394 W. Alameda Avenue and 1373 W. Nevada Place.

Warren Village’s housing program has demonstrated clear and meaningful results for more than 8,.000 single parents and children since 1974. When given the opportunity and access to resources that Warren Village offers, families thrive as contributing members of a more vibrant, engaged, and equitable society.

State-of-the-Art 2Gen Housing

Warren Village at Alameda represents the state’s first intentional supportive housing for single-parent families and meets an identified need for affordable housing in Denver. The complex will provide 89 units of supportive housing; a state-of-the-art, 100-slot, Early Learning Center, complete with playgrounds; and community meeting spaces. The campus will also feature classrooms for college and workforce training, community gardens, and outdoor gathering spaces designed to foster connections with existing neighbors.

As of January 31, 2024, Warren Village at Alameda is in the midst of construction. Underground utilities and foundation slabs, and masonry elevator cores have been installed on both buildings. Framing on the south building that faces Nevada has begun in the third (top) floor and is expected to be topped out soon and dried in by mid-February. Exterior sheathing is moving forward, following framing, and initial electrical rough-in has begun. The north building that faces Alameda is phased about one month behind, with first floor framing currently underway and an expected dried in date of mid-March. The south building along Nevada will house the Early Learning Center (ELC). The ELC is located on the first floor of the building, which has been initially framed and on track for further construction.

On August 30, 2023, initial construction was formally celebrated with a groundbreaking ceremony attended by over 75 community members, including the mayor, community leaders, and other project stakeholders.

Finalized construction documents with Urban Ventures to provide expertise, analysis, and implementation for each phase of the project from site identification, land acquisition and through construction completion. Urban Ventures has been appointed as the owner’s representative for the Alameda project.

Architectural contract finalized between Shears Adkins Rockmore (SAR) and Warren Village Inc to provide building design.

Warren Village raised over $5.5M for the project from local foundations, corporations, and individuals.

Additional state partners committed to the project include the Colorado Division of Housing (CDOH) and Denver’s Office of Housing Stability (HOST), who will provide additional funding and housing vouchers.

In July 2023, the Safety, Housing, Education and Homelessness Committee of the Denver City Council unanimously approved the project to provide supportive housing and allocated additional funding under the Homeless Resolution Fund.

In December 2022, Rep. Diana DeGette granted $4M in support of the Warren Village at Alameda project allocated through the FY23 Congressional spending bill.

In November 2022, Warren Village secured $26M in federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) supported by the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA). LIHTC provides nearly 50% of the project costs.

In November 2021, the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) provided land for the campus using proceeds for a tax bond approved in 2018. DHA will lease the land to Warren Village for $100 a year for 99 years. DHA is also providing 50 rental subsidy vouchers.
