On October 3, 2023, Housing Catalyst celebrated breaking ground on the updated and expanded Village on Impala, a thoughtfully designed project that will provide 86 homes with affordable rents in northwest Fort Collins. The community will feature four newly constructed apartment buildings, twelve renovated duplexes, a new clubhouse and leasing office, active greenspace with a playground, and pedestrian/bicycle connectivity paths.
The footprint of the expanded community includes the current Village on Impala (existing duplexes with affordable rents managed by Housing Catalyst), as well as former public housing that was repositioned in 2022 through the Section 18 disposition process. The redevelopment will improve the health and aesthetic of the community while substantially increasing the number of affordable homes in a prime location adjacent to the main entrance of Poudre High School.
Renovations to the existing duplexes will improve accessibility and energy efficiency. Sustainability efforts include the addition of solar panels to the new community.
Construction is anticipated to be completed in early 2025.
