Good news for those looking for rental properties in the booming Westminster area: Construction has begun at the cityâ€™s first mixed-use, transit-oriented community at Westminster Station. Alto, a 70-unit affordable apartment development, is the first of many buildings planned by Adams County Housing Authority (ACHA) on a 6.5-acre area located at the northwest corner of 71st Avenue and Federal Boulevard.
Construction is slated to be completed in October of next year, and when Alto opens it will provide one, two, and three-bedroom apartments for families making between 30% and 60% of the area median income or between $23,970 and $47,940 for a family of four. Rents will range from approximately $406 to $1,176 per month.
Altoâ€™s location will offer residents easy access to nearby grocery stores, schools, medical facilities, and recreation areas. The apartments are all energy efficient and the building offers lots of amenities including a community room, a fitness center, a computer room, a picnic area, and bike storage.
Alto also contains commercial space that will be used as the South County location for the Adams County Housing Authority and the Center for Career and Community Enrichment (3CE), a nonprofit community center. 3CE will provide services, including job search training, housing counseling, life skills and parenting classes, and GED preparation.
