Housing advocates break ground on affordable housing expansion in southeast Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Tuesday, city leaders and housing advocates broke ground on an affordable housing expansion in southeast Colorado Springs.

The expansion of the affordable housing apartment complex called Bentley Commons will add 168 new rent-controlled units for veterans, families, and individuals.

“Folks here will never pay more than they can afford to pay in rent, which is really important that we've got those low levels to support working communities and folks on disability and everybody that needs a safe, stable place to live,” said Mary Stegner, Executive Director of Partners in Housing.

The project is a collaborative effort between local organizations Greccio Housing, Partners in Housing, and Rocky Mountain Community Land Trust.

Bentley Commons currently holds 24 units, and this 168-unit expansion will be made up of one, two, and three-bedroom options.

The organizations are setting aside 28 units for veterans facing the challenges of homelessness.

The project is set to be complete by mid-2025, so the organizations are not accepting applications at this time. However, you can find other affordable housing opportunities by visiting the organization's websites below:
