Coffman Street, a public-private partnership between Boulder County Housing Authority (BCHA), the Longmont Downtown Development Authority (LDDA) and a local business, is a mixed-use development to be located at 518 Coffman Street in downtown Longmont.
In addition to 73 permanently-affordable rental homes for families and individuals earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI), this vibrant, mixed-use development will also include 263 parking spaces for residents, downtown employees and visitors, a commercial space which will likely be used as a workforce enterprise café, and BCHA Property Management offices.
The site is located across the street from the St. Vrain Community Hub, the County’s integrated “one-stop” location for services including financial supports, integrated public and behavioral health programs, personal finance and education, employment training and resources, and services for children and families. The Hub’s close proximity to the new residents will support stable housing and healthier households.
In all of our housing communities, BCHA strives to welcome a range of residents, promote our clients’ path to self-sufficiency, achieve social, economic, environmental sustainability and connect our clients to critical and vital services. Coffman Street provides an excellent opportunity to provide affordable housing in proximity to the Hub, Longmont’s vibrant Main Street, local and regional transportation, and access to employment opportunities.
