Cuningham Group Architecture Designs First Project Completed Using Denver’s Affordable Housing Loan Fund


Denver, CO — A new affordable and energy-efficient 84-unit development designed by Cuningham Group Architecture, Inc. (Cuningham Group®) is now open in Denver’s popular Stapleton neighborhood. Partnering with its client, Northeast Denver Housing Center (NDHC), Northfield @ Stapleton Apartments is a public-private development and one of the first projects completed in Denver using the city’s Revolving Affordable Housing Loan fund. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock joined community leaders, local officials and business leaders in a grand opening to celebrate the development, and called it a signature project in keeping Denver affordable and accessible.

Located at the entrance to Denver’s Stapleton- Northfield Development, Cuningham Group designed the project from the perspective of livability. The development includes pedestrian walkways and a center courtyard which provides a safe retreat from busy adjacent streets and space for large playgrounds, outdoor cooking and gardening.

“We brought our deep affordable housing expertise to bear through our coordinated architecture, interior design and landscape architecture services to realize NDHC’s vision of creating homes for working families while presenting a welcoming and inviting face to the community,” says Jeffrey Schoeneck, principal and lead architect of the project Northeast Denver Housing Center, a 34-year-old nonprofit builder of affordable housing, appreciated Cuningham Group’s thoughtful approach to the design of the project.

“Affordable housing projects can poise difficult design challenges since we want our projects to blend seamlessly into their communities,” says Dominique Acevedo, director of design and development at Northeast Denver Housing Center. “Cuningham Group architects met those challenges with their creative design skills and expertise in creating cost-effective and efficient design solutions while maintaining livability.”
