ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Work has begun on a new residential development in Englewood that developers say is the biggest such project in the city in 50 years.
Iron Works Village is situated along Bates Avenue on the former site of the General Iron foundry, which closed its doors in the 1980s. The development is in close proximity to South Broadway, South Santa Fe Drive and the Englewood light rail station.
When it’s completed, the development will include 136 townhomes, duplexes and single-family homes with prices starting in the mid-$300,000 range.
The neighborhood is designed to be walkable, with narrow tree-lined streets and architects say they designed the homes to complement the surrounding area.
“These houses use principles of historic neighborhoods in a modern way. They honor the historic shapes of houses,” said Pel-Ona Architects and Urbanists Co-founder Korkut Onaran. “But they have open floor plans and use modern technologies and building assemblies that live up to current-day sustainability needs.”
Site work at Iron Works Village is nearly done and construction crews will start pouring foundations next month, with the goal of having the first batch of homes completed early next year.
Pre-sales of homes in Iron Works Village have already begun. For more information, log on to ironworksvillage.com.
