The Brighton Housing Authority and Hendricks LLC broke ground recently on Libretto apartments, a sustainable and affordable housing community for seniors and other citizens.
The 3.5-acre site here in Brighton, on the corner of South 8th Avenue and Jessup Street, once fully built out, will have 72 apartments and will be designed in compliance with sustainable principles as identified in the Enterprise Green Communities program. The energy efficient, independent living apartments will feature accessible design, open floor plan and balconies.
The first phase will consist of 28 apartments. The current tenants of the Platte Valley Manor, an older public housing apartment community, will have the first opportunity to occupy Libretto Phase I as the existing Platte Valley Manor is scheduled for disposition and redevelopment. The former Brighton library will be converted into a community center offering a variety of services for all Libretto residents.
