Housing Catalyst shares plans for Impala redevelopment
Housing Catalyst is sharing early plans for their redevelopment of several properties off of Impala drive. The project will include the current Village on Impala as well as connected properties that are currently under HUD review for disposition approval.
Adding Homes and Community Features
The Impala sites currently house 11 single family homes and 13 duplexes. The current plans for redevelopment will net 49 new affordable homes as well as more community space. The planned community would feature:
86 affordable homes
12 duplexes (rehab of existing homes)
62 apartments/townhomes (redevelopment of 11 single family homes and 1 duplex)
Active green space and playground
Accessibility and efficiency improvements
Goals of the Impala Project
The Impala redevelopment project aligns with Housing Catalyst’s goals to expand access to affordable homes, as well as the City of Fort Collins’s affordable housing goals. The project will not only preserve existing affordable homes, it will more than double the number of affordable homes available in this community.
Design goals include promoting health and connectivity within the community. The design brings in open space to balance housing capacity in a suburban context.
Village on Impala Renovation
Renovations to the current Village on Impala duplexes will offer improved efficiency – reducing energy consumption, lowering utility costs for residents, and lowering maintenance costs for the community. Planned improvements include:
New windows, siding, and roofs
Sidewalk and parking lot improvements
New countertops and cabinetry
Replace plumbing fixtures and hardware
New water heaters, boilers, furnaces, and A/C systems
Planning for the project will continue through 2022 with construction anticipated to begin in Summer 2023. Construction is projected to be completed in Fall 2024.
