Workforce Housing Project in RiNo Breaks Ground
DENVER – Zeppelin Development, recognized for more than 40 years of delivering catalytic projects to Denver’s urban core neighborhoods, broke ground yesterday on its latest project “Kabin,” 194 workforce housing units located at 3461 Ringsby Court within the TAXI community in RiNo.
Many employees of Denver-based companies are forced to live outside of the city due to rising housing costs. Kabin will provide much needed workforce housing to service industry and young professionals with a downtown location and amenities that work well for them. Employers may purchase units and then rent them freely to their employees who won’t need to meet any income requirements.
Zeppelin told the Denver Business Journal that Alterra Mountain Company, headquartered at Zeppelin Station, and Boa Technology, located in Zeppelin’s “Flight” building, are both being targeted as candidates to buy up units for their employees. Employers may lease units for $1,300 per month and then rent it to their employees for a more affordable $800 per month.
Designed by a collaboration including Dynia Architects, Wenk Associates and Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture, the residences will primarily be one bedrooms with wood panel detailing on the exterior and interior areas, providing a warmer pallet. Enhanced appliances, lighting and plumbing fixture packages will be provided, and operable glass garage doors – a Zeppelin signature – will be included in every unit to maximize sunlight.
Residents will also enjoy easy access to all of the amenities and services on the TAXI campus, including Comal, Black Black Coffee, a shipping container pool, conference rooms, community garden, early childcare education center and more.
Kabin is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2020.
