“The Denver Housing Authority is redeveloping a block-long apartment complex it owns along Curtis Park, a plan that includes renovating some of the existing structures while also selling off a portion of the site.
The 3000 block of Stout and Champa streets is home to nine buildings, all dating to 1942, that together comprise DHA’s Platte Valley Homes. The complex had a total of 66 residential units; tenants were moved to other DHA properties this year.
Ryan Tobin, DHA director of real estate, said the complex, one of the oldest in the authority’s portfolio, has required significant maintenance costs in recent years, prompting the need for redevelopment.
Six of the existing buildings will be renovated, Tobin said. The remaining three — a community center facing Champa Street, and the two structures at the corner of Champa and 30th Street — will be demolished.
The land beneath the demolished structures, as well as a site along Stout Street currently used as a parking lot, will be divided into 15 parcels and put up for sale in the fourth quarter, Tobin said.”
