After Christina first moved to Denver, her rent skyrocketed. At the end of a six-month lease, the landlord informed her the rent would rise from $675 to $1,000.
“I don’t know how people afford to live here, honestly,” said Christina, 50, who works as a restaurant server at the Denver International Airport.
A friend suggested she apply for affordable housing. Christina applied and two years later got a one-bedroom apartment in a new building called Broadway Junction. The complex, managed by Archdiocesan Housing, an affiliate of Catholic Charities, offers spacious one-and two-bedroom units with amenities in a central location. It includes a business center, garage, A/C and easy access to the light rail near the Baker and Platte Park neighborhoods. And the rent is affordable. As a tax-credit property, rents range from $396 to $820.
“It’s been a very good fit for me,” she said. “I find it a pretty quiet place to live, and I’ve always had very positive experiences with management.”
Now a four-year resident at the complex with her dog, Christina says she would have been forced to move out of Denver if she hadn’t found Broadway Junction. The affordable rent has also given her a chance to explore new hobbies, including powerlifting and launching a non-profit for at-risk teenagers.
