Casitas de Colores is a three-story, multi-family complex. Through the efficient use of space and tuck-under parking, the project provided 71 units of affordable housing consisting of single story, multi-bedroom units targeting families with children. All of the units have private patios or balconies, and two of the buildings featured courtyards with outdoor living amenities. The project consumed an entire block of Downtown Albuquerque and required significant coordination with the City for street, alley and sidewalk access to enable deliveries.
Casitas de Colores achieved LEED Platinum, ENERGY STAR and Enterprise Green Communities certifications.
