Breaking Ground in Sheridan
July 18, 2016
2016 has been a busy year for Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver. We’ve been building, renovating and repairing homes from Castle Rock to Montbello – and many neighborhoods in between! But we’re not stopping there… we’re excited to announce that construction is about to begin on Sheridan Square, our largest development in our 37-year history.
Located on a 4.35-acre former elementary school site in the city of Sheridan (near Federal & Hampden), our plans include the construction of 63 energy-efficient homes built over the next four years. These homes will take the collective work of more than 40,000 volunteers, and will provide stable and affordable housing for approximately 130 adults and 225 children.
Sheridan Square will forever transform the City of Sheridan. Its 63 new homes will add 6% more owner-occupied housing units to the city, creating long-term and stable homeownership within this community. Sheridan Square will also provide roughly $77,000 in property taxes to the city each year.
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.
