Columbia Ventures Opens Viña Apartments in Denver, CO

Permanent Large Scale and Deep Affordability Achievement in Elyria-Swansea Neighborhood

Columbia Ventures has created a new, landmark community in the Elyria-Swansea neighborhood of Denver that’s under dramatic displacement pressure due to rising prices. Featuring 150 units of quality housing with a significant medical clinic and ancillary retail, the development is a permanent commitment to workforce and affordable housing.

“We’ve now carved out the first phase of this community just steps from the 48th & Brighton National Western Center Station RTD station,” said Columbia Ventures’ Managing Partner Dillon Baynes. “And it delivers—half of the apartments are targeted at teacher and first responder incomes (80% of area median income), and half target incomes at the 30% and 50% of area median income levels.
