Crosswinds at Arista to provide needed quality affordable housing in growing Broomfield, Colorado community
BROOMFIELD, COLO., USA, March 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gorman & Company celebrated the groundbreaking of “Crosswinds at Arista,” an affordable housing community, on Tuesday, March 29, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. MT. The ceremony took place at the construction site at 11697 Destination Dr., Broomfield, Colorado.
Crosswinds at Arista is a 159-unit affordable housing development in the Arista neighborhood of Broomfield and will serve families and individuals earning up to 60% of the Area Median Income once completed. This project offers high quality housing near existing employment and services for residents. In addition, Crosswinds at Arista is close to RTD Broomfield Station, with several bus routes and Bus Rapid Transit options between Denver and Boulder.
“We are incredibly thankful to have had the opportunity to create Crosswinds at Arista in partnership with the City and County of Broomfield, the Broomfield Housing Authority, and the State of Colorado Division of Housing. This new community responds to the goals laid out by the Housing Advisory Committee of Broomfield and will expand the spectrum of housing options available in the Arista neighborhood,” Colorado Market President of Gorman & Company Kimball Crangle said. “This project could not have come to fruition without alignment with the seller of the property, the Colorado State Land Board. Our mutual goals helped put this project on the map.”
The future home of Crosswinds at Arista, a 6.2-acre site, will feature 54 one-bedroom, 84 two-bedroom, and 21 three-bedroom units spread throughout four individual buildings. Other amenities for residents include bike storage, playgrounds, laundry facilities, a picnic area, and a dog park. Key financing partners for Crosswinds at Arista are the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA), Division of Housing – Colorado Department of Local Affairs, and the City of Broomfield. In addition, CitiBank is providing construction and permanent financing, and National Equity Fund is the equity investor on the project. Crosswinds at Arista is expected to finish construction in the late fall of 2023.
