A five-party funding arrangement is to be considered by Denver City Council that would eventually allow some 2,800 new homes to be built on the former Stapleton International Airport property, which was decommissioned in the mid-1990s. The Stapleton “Five Parties” (City and County of Denver, Denver Urban Renewal Authority, Denver Public Schools, Forest City and Park Creek Metropolitan District) have agreed on an arrangement to fund and build an additional school, fire station and other infrastructure at Stapleton.

A 77-year-old building that played a key role in Denver's early history will try to help address the city's current affordable housing crisis, as the “Sloans Block 3” redevelopment project on the former St. Anthony Central Hospital site in northwest Denver gets underway this year. The project is being developed by Sloans Block 3 LLC, a joint venture of Koelbel and Co. and Trailbreak Partners, as a residential mixed-use, mixed-income project in the West Colfax neighborhood. It includes the restoration and adaptive reuse of the Kuhlman Building to provide 49 for-rent units affordable to households earning 60 percent area median income or below.
