Denver developer eyes affordable housing project in Granby

Lance Maggart

An affordable housing development could be coming to Granby in the near future as a developer from the Denver area continues discussions with the Town of Granby regarding the proposal.

The topic was discussed briefly during the Granby Board of Trustees late January meeting during the Town Manager’s Report presented to the Board by Town Manager Wally Baird. According to Baird the developers initially contacted the Town about an affordable housing development proposal on land formerly occupied by the Frontier Motel.

Granby informed the developers the Town already has a 30-acre plot specifically designated for affordable housing development. That 30-acre plot is located behind and to the north of the H&R Block building just off Highway 40 near the turn off to City Market on Thompson Road.

The proposal is in the early stages and nothing official has been decided yet. The Town of Granby is now waiting on a formal design proposal from the developer, Triton Investment Company, before the Town can take further action. Baird said he felt the developer was excited about the project and he expects more movement on the proposal in the future.

Baird’s report to the Board highlighted that local firms Munn Architecture and Bowman Consulting are working with the developer to move the proposal forward. Representatives of Bowman Consulting declined to comment on this article citing the need for a formal agreement between the developer and the Town before they could speak to the issue. Representatives for Munn Architecture were unavailable for comment and representatives of Triton Investment Company did not return requests for comment as of press time.
