Housing Developments

The Boulder County Housing Authority is responding to the rapidly rising need for an increased supply of affordable housing across all of our communities. We seek to build high quality, environmentally sustainable neighborhoods that welcome our clients home.

Current Affordable Home Proposals and Developments:

Coffman Street

Located at 518 Coffman Street in Longmont, this proposed affordable housing development will provide permanently affordable housing as part of a vibrant, mixed-use building that will include parking for Boulder County residents and employees as well as commercial/office space. The development proposal includes 50 to 80 units of permanently affordable housing, approximately 10,000 square feet of office space, and a parking garage.


Boulder County purchased the 13-acre Alkonis property to support the affordable housing needs of Louisville. The property, now known as Kestrel, is located just northwest of Highway 42 and South Boulder Road, and will include senior housing, family housing, pocket parks, and commercial uses.

Nederland Housing

In our quest to help address the increasing lack of housing affordability in our mountain communities, BCHA recently purchased a .85-acre lot near downtown Nederland. The currently-vacant land is located next to the town’s Regional Transportation District (RTD) parking lot and is near many area services, making it ideal for the placement of up to 34 units of high quality permanently-affordable housing. BCHA will present our proposal for this housing at two upcoming community meetings at the Nederland Community Center: on Tuesday, March 14th and Monday, March 20th, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. both evenings. Presentations will begin at 7 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend. We’ll have more information on our Nederland affordable housing proposal on this page soon.
