DENVER — A new affordable housing complex is breaking ground in the Globeville area. The $27 million project will be called The Elisabetta.

It will be built on an empty lot near the intersection of 51st and Broadway on the Laradon campus. Laradon is a Denver nonprofit that provides services for people living with disabilities.

The 91-unit affordable apartment complex will feature one, two and three-bedroom units. About a quarter of those units will be set aside for people with disabilities. The rest will be for families that earn between 30 and 60 percent of the area’s median income.

The project is set to be completed by late 2019. A groundbreaking ceremony is set for Thursday morning and will be attended by city council members, the CEO of Laradon and other business representatives.

Once completed, the apartment complex will feature units with all the kitchen appliances already installed, a fitness center, a central laundry facility and commercial space on the bottom floor. There will also be an in-house bike-share program available to residents.
