Holly Park Community Center

Architecture Community Center Holly Park

The Holly Park Community Center is part of affordable housing development in Commerce City, Colorado. Holly Park was originally constructed as market-rate apartments in the 1970s. When Mercy Housing took it over, it faced problems typical of this type of conversion, a lack of facilities needed for affordable housing. Mercy offers programs to their residents, including job training and after school care, and these needs were being handled out of a converted apartment. The offices were undersized to handle the increased tenant interaction with staff and the need for clothing and food banks. Additionally, the on-site maintenance was being housed in a variety of sheds. EVstudio thoughtfully crafted an all-new building nestled within the campus which now houses their offices, large food and clothing banks, a room that accommodates community functions and after school care, a computer lab, maintenance operations, and an office for a police liaison officer.
