Yesterday, the groundbreaking ceremony was held for the first building in the multi-year $250 million redevelopment of Denver Housing Authority’s South Lincoln Homes near the 10th & Osage light rail station. Once complete later this decade, the redevelopment will more than triple the number of housing units and add commercial uses to the mix. This first new building is an 8-story, 100-unit apartment tower for seniors.
