The Commerce City Council gave its approval for the construction of 48 units of income-restricted senior apartments Monday night. Now the project hangs on whether the developer can get low-income housing credits from the Department of Community Affairs.
Accepting the recommendation of the city’s planning commission, the council voted unanimously to rezone 19.49 acres off State Street from R-3 (duplexes) to R-4 (multifamily housing) for Paladin, Inc., of Alabama. But the property will revert to R-3 if Paladin does not get the DCA funding necessary for the $7 million project.
