New award for Senior Residence at Creekside West

The Lakewood Housing Authority, dba Metro West Housing Solutions, will receive a grant of $500,000 in HOME funds for the construction of Senior Residence at Creekside West. This is Phase II of the award winning Residence at Creekside Community, a 118 unit senior development built in 2007 (also supported by CDOH funds). The new building will be directly west and adjacent to the existing facility. This new 83 unit property will offer independent living for seniors 55 and over, on a 1-acre site in central Lakewood. It will be a 4-story wood-frame building with two elevators, underground parking, and an emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability, including passive solar, solar PV and solar thermal. The project’s 83 units will be affordable at 30%, 50% & 60% of the area median income.
