DENVER (CBS4) – Dozens of new affordable homes will be available for purchase soon in Denver thanks to a new partnership announced this week. Through the partnership, which includes Denver Economic Development & Opportunity and Habitat for Humanity, the multi-family affordable housing will remain affordable through a 99-year land trust.

The new homes are located at the following areas:

– East 44th Avenue and Columbine Street in the Globeville and Elyria-Swansea neighborhood

“Housing exists today, and while it is overwhelming to think of the full need in our community, when we’re able to work alongside a family to allow their dreams to become their reality, it’s incredible. And the impact is so significant,” Habitat for Humanity spokeswoman Heather Lafferty said.
