Sheridan Square will be the largest development in Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver’s history. Located on a 4.35-acre former elementary school site in the City of Sheridan, Habitat’s plans include the construction of 63 energy-efficient homes built over the course of five years.
With housing costs skyrocketing across metro Denver, Habitat’s mission of building and preserving affordable housing has never been more important. Habitat’s ultimate goal is to create a world in which everyone has a decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety. Sheridan Square will further Habitat Metro Denver’s vision by creating permanent housing solutions for approximately 130 adults and 225 children.
- Sheridan Square will add 6% more owner-occupied housing units, creating long-term and stable homeownership opportunities in the community.
- Sheridan Square will bring an influx of students to the Sheridan School District.
- 63 new Habitat homes will add roughly $77,000 of property taxes to the City of Sheridan every year.
- In an effort to create a healthy and desirable neighborhood, Habitat has partnered with South Suburban Parks and Recreation to design and construct a small public park as part of the development.
- The location provides a great opportunity to build in the southwest part of metro area—ideal for partner families, sponsors and volunteers.
- Through the development of a longitudinal impact evaluation study, Habitat will be able to analyze the long-term benefits for families and the City of Sheridan community.
This transformative community would not be possible without the generous lead funding from Wells Fargo Community Foundation, Arapahoe County Housing and Community Development Services, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Ed and Roxanne Fie Anderson.
