Landmark Homes has debuted an affordable, sustainable community in Fort Collins, Colo. The property, Northfield, features luxury apartments and townhouse-style condominiums.

The residences offer one- to three-bedroom layouts, one to two-and-a-half baths, and one and two-car attached garages. Prices for condos start in the high $300,000s. Apartments serve residents earning 60 percent of AMI.

Apartments feature walk-in closets, granite countertops, in-unit washers and dryers, sprinkler systems and wheelchair-accessible rooms. Among the property services and amenities of the community are planned social activities.

Sustainable features

Northfield is a LEED Gold Certified community. The features that helped earn the community that distinction are energy-recovery ventilators for fresh air, low-VOC paint and coatings, smart thermostats, ENERGY STAR appliances, water-efficient fixtures, highly efficient LED lighting, electric car charging stations and more.

In a prepared statement, a Landmark Homes official noted Northfield represents an affordable homeownership opportunity that hadn’t before existed so near downtown Fort Collins. He further noted that within a three-mile radius of Northfield, the average sale price is $675,000, while Northfield’s average sale price is $450,000.

Nearby attractions

Three different Colorado State University campuses are located within a 15-minute drive of the property. The Cottonwood Plaza, North College Marketplace and Country Club Corners shopping centers are all within a five-minute drive.

There are also five different parks and recreational opportunities within 1.2 miles of the development: Salyer Natural Area, Rivers Edge Natural Area, Redwing Marsh Natural Area, Rocky Mountain Raptor Program and Gustav Swanson Natural Area.

Several months ago, a joint venture landed $23 million in financing to develop supportive housing in Colorado Springs, Colo.
