St. Francis Supportive Housing
The St. Francis Center Supportive Housing is a 50-unit multi-family project at Cathedral Square in Denver, CO. Saint Francis Apartments will utilize a tried and true Housing First model to combat homelessness within the City of Denver and will provide permanent supportive services necessary to overcome chronic homelessness.
The proposed development is located to provide convenient services and amenities to individuals and families who may not otherwise have resources available to take advantage of opportunities necessary to advance their lives. Saint Francis Apartments will be located at the 1400 Block of North Washington Street in the Capitol Hill Neighborhood of Denver. The project will be proximate to a number of services and amenities, a key factor in the fight against homelessness.
Saint Francis Apartments site is located on land currently owned by Clarkson Corp, a wholly owned subsidiary of St. John’s Cathedral. Upon successful award of funding Clarkson Corp will execute a 55 year ground lease to Saint Francis Apartments LLLP, of which St. Francis Center will be the managing member of the General Partner, Saint Francis Development LLC.
The project will consist of one six-story building with podium parking and a lobby/reception area on the ground floor. The building’s second story will contain approximately 2,669 sf of common and service space which will include a large common/dining room, a meeting room, a library/computer lab, a central laundry facility, and six apartments. Floors three through five will each have twelve apartments and floor six will have eight apartments and a large outdoor terrace. One of the apartments will be a manager’s unit.
