Crossing Pointe North Grand Opening
Adams County celebrated the grand opening of Crossing Pointe North, an affordable housing development for seniors, with its partners and building residents on Friday, Oct. 18.
Located at the corner of 104th Ave. and Colorado Blvd. in Thornton, Crossing Pointe North contains 64 apartments serving seniors aged 62 and up and is convenient to shopping, restaurants, open space, and the Thornton Crossing light rail station on RTD’s future N Line, which is in the final stages of testing before opening.
“By 2034, we will have more Americans over the age of 65 than we have under the age of 18,” said Eva J. Henry, Adams County Commissioner, who spoke at the grand opening. “Adams County will be significantly impacted by this national trend so we are identifying projects to address this with a strategic and thoughtful approach.”
In addition to Adams County, funding was provided by Unison Housing Partners, the City of Thornton, Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, Wells Fargo, and the Colorado Department of Local Affairs. Adams County contributed $830,000 in HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds, which supports activities that increase and maintain the supply of permanent, affordable housing for low- to moderate-income residents.
The development is already occupied by several residents and is the first phase of a larger affordable housing community for seniors and families.
“We found the right partner, for the right project, in the right place,” Henry said. “I want to thank every staff member at every agency involved in this development, and I’d also like to thank the skilled trades and labor force for their professionalism. It truly does take a village, and this is one village I’m proud to call home.”
