Held on Feb. 29, the 2023 Awards of Achievement celebrated the “Best of the Best” in Colorado’s real estate industry.

“We are thrilled to see DHA has been recognized for its dedication to creating vibrant and inclusive communities in Denver.” Joshua Crawley, interim chief executive officer said. “Our team works tirelessly to provide quality affordable housing for all, and this award is a true testament to the impact we are making.”

Thrive is a resident building created for families, located between I-25 and Federal Blvd on Holden Place in the heart of the Sun Valley neighborhood. The development includes many larger units for families, including 34 three-bedroom units (12 of which are townhomes), four four-bedroom units and four five-bedroom units.
