Northstar, Balfour Start Work on Senior Housing in Denver
- Apr 27, 2016
Denver—Northstar Commercial Partners and Balfour Senior Living have started the development of a 1.56-acre parcel in Denver’s Stapleton neighborhood (2979 Uinta St.). The companies’ plans call for an assisted living and memory care senior living community.
The planned 74 units, which will include 58 assisted living and 16 memory care, are slated for completion in the spring of 2017. They will cater to residents who require assistance for day-to-day activities and patients who suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s.
The property will also provide senior residents proximity to the Stapleton Town Center, which is anchored by a King Soopers grocery store, and the Quebec Square power center with various national retailers. The Stapleton neighborhood is an urban redevelopment of the former Stapleton International Airport and currently includes over 19,000 residents.
“The ability to construct a brand-new facility near such extensive retail development offers many options to our residents and their visiting family members,” said Brian Watson, founder & CEO of Northstar Commercial Partners. “Stapleton creates choice for seniors who are able to make use of these amenities.” There are also two age-restricted, independent living communities close to the property.
Balfour Senior Living will operate the property upon completion. Davis Wince Ltd. has been selected as the architect firm and Brinkmann Constructors as the general contractor for the project.
