Rents in Denver have fallen during the pandemic, according to a recent market report, but that doesn’t mean apartment developers are any less keen on a city that was a hot spot for rent growth before COVID-19 came calling. In fact, the number of would-be apartments in the planning pipeline for the metro area hit a record 46,000 in December, according to Denver data firm Apartment Insights. The X Company, the Chicago-based developer behind the X Denver apartment tower that is inching toward completion after nearly three years of construction just north of Coors Field at 3100 Inca St., embodies that enthusiasm for the Mile High City even in the face of shifting consumer preferences. X Denver offers traditional studio and one-bedroom apartments inside its 12-story, 455-apartment frame, but the X Company also allows people to rent individual bedrooms with private bathrooms in two-, three- and four-bedroom “co-living” apartments with shared kitchens and common areas. Tenants can … [Read more...] about The X Denver apartment building is all about shared community space. Will it and other new projects succeed in the pandemic?

Since the earliest days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress has treated people’s physical health and economic health as separate and distinct. While legislators would never think of cutting off free access to COVID treatment and vaccinations in the midst of this health crisis, they are quite willing to eliminate or underfund the economic supports that are vital to the survival of individuals, families, and communities. The COVID-19 relief bill Congress passed in December is a perfect illustration. Its provisions expire throughout the year like the seasons. Enhanced federal unemployment insurance ends on March 14 . Tax credits to encourage paid family leave expire on March 31 . Expanded Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits run out on June 30 . Remaining CARES Act funds must be spent by December 31 . Every COVID relief bill has been crafted with temporary supports and arbitrary end dates, chasing an unpredictable virus and an unclear … [Read more...] about COVID recovery requires addressing economic inequities
CROWLEY — A few jagged cottonwoods still jut at the edges of the wind-whipped fields where Jim Valliant grew alfalfa, corn and wheat — before his then- employer, Foxley Cattle Co., sold its water rights to satisfy urban demands along Colorado’s high-growth Front Range. It was one big sale among many of farmers’ water rights that have nearly killed Crowley and other prairie towns on the north side of the Arkansas River. Concrete-lined irrigation ditches that once delivered water now are bone-dry. Draining water that once irrigated crops to supply suburban housing, lawns and golf courses makes it impossible for farms and the towns that depend on farming to survive. “Once you move water out, it ain’t coming back to the land,” the 74-year-old Valliant, now an irrigation specialist for Colorado State University’s Cooperative Extension station in nearby Rocky Ford, said recently as he rolled past the weeds and a slumping farmhouse surrounded by garbage. Built in the 1890s, after … [Read more...] about In Crowley, “plug’s already out of the tub”
