Arroyo Village is a joint development between the Delores Project and Rocky Mountain Communities. The affordable housing project includes a new shelter facility serving women and transgender individuals experiencing homelessness as well as 35 units of low-income, permanent supportive housing and 95 units of affordable housing for individuals and families in the workforce.

Arroyo Village, which opened in 2019, received funding in part through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. The affordable housing project– designed by Shopworks– included a strong focus on healing-centered and trauma-informed design as well as elements of biophilia and community connection.

Group14 provided Enterprise Green Communities (EGC) consulting, IECC energy modeling, EDA, and commissioning for the four-story property, which is located adjacent to the Knox Court Light Rail Station in Northwest Denver.


EGC Certification was achieved via site improvements, water conservation, environmentally-friendly materials, and healthy living principles.

The project achieved 25% energy cost savings along with an Xcel Energy EDA incentive of $68,638.

In 2020, Arroyo Village won the Jack Kemp ULI award in the large-scale (100 units or more) development category. This prestigious national award is given to just six affordable and workforce housing projects across the United States each year.
