Families earning no more than 60 percent of the area median income will find housing they can afford and support to help them thrive at a new development near the Anschutz medical campus.

Brothers Redevelopment Inc. celebrated the grand opening of Aurora’s $13.5 million, 39-unit Paris Family Apartments on Friday with a ceremony attended by Secretary Ben Carson, whose Housing and Urban Development department provided federal funding for the project; U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner; and Gov. Jared Polis.

The city of Aurora, Arapahoe County, the Colorado Division of Housing, the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority and private and philanthropic grant-makers also helped make the project possible.

The two- and three-bedroom complex is Brothers’ 14th income-restricted housing development, and its first in Aurora. Most of Brothers’ buildings are in metro Denver.

Brothers is partnering with the Mental Health Center of Aurora and others to provide job training, after-school tutoring and other services and programs for residents of Paris, a permanent supportive housing project.
