St. Anthony hospital may have moved from the Sloan’s Lake area, but a new project nearby will continue to provide care for seniors.

BusinessDen reports that the Denver Housing Authority wants to build apartments for disabled seniors above a new medical service center planned for Colfax Avenue and Quitman. There will also be a two bedroom apartment for one live-in caretaker.

The outlet reports that the apartments will be affordable — renters will make no more than 60 percent of median income. But that’s not the only way they’ll keep living costs down:

“[DHA’s real estate director Ryan Tobin] said all residents will pay 30 percent of their income in rent, regardless of how much each tenant makes.

“‘The reality is that in some cases we will be servicing people at below 30 percent AMI,’ Tobin said.”
