This capstone forms the beginning of a master land use plan for 123 9th Avenue, a Light-Industrial (L-I) property in Greeley, Colorado. The client, High Plains Housing Development Corporation (HPHDC), initiated this report to explore the feasibility of an adaptive reuse project. HPHDC is a nonprofit corporation and a Community Housing Development Organization that seeks to prevent community deterioration in low income areas and to assist low-to-moderate income individuals and families through affordable housing development strategies. Their project goal is to provide low-income affordable and permanent supportive housing units in response to a deficient affordable housing stock in Greeley.
