Peakview Trails, an affordable tax credit apartment community in the city of Greeley, Colorado. It will provide a total of 96 unit with a mix of both one and two bedroom options.
The attraction of Peakview Trails is that it offers ease of mobility and is within a short walking distance to grocery stores, medical care, local restaurants and public transportation which offers an easy commute to the heart of downtown Greeley. With the close proximity of walking trails and open space parks, Peakview Trails offers seniors the best of both worlds; the enjoyment of suburban life and the attraction of the urban downtown amenities.
Peakview Trails is designed to promote active engagement among the residents to help promote a sense of community and belonging. This philosophy is apparent throughout the property. The community room offers an inviting atmosphere with large windows and pockets of quaint seating for enjoying the warmth of the stone fireplace or a hand of gin rummy with a good friend. For those wishing for a more competitive gaming event, there is a separate room where residents will find board games, and tables which is large enough to host a weekly bridge tournament. For those looking to keep up with world events or escape into solving a mystery, they can take advantage of the on-site library or computer stations available. Additionally, residents can use the facility for hosting their family, friends and/or groups they belong to. Whether for a special event or merely because they want to, the entertainment kitchen and dining area will provide the necessary equipment and seating needs. A large patio with grills and picnic tables connect to the dining area, once again to promote a transitional and engaging opportunity to the outdoor amenities.
The design of the outdoor space is also unique in serving the needs of the residents. For those whom already have green thumbs, they will have the opportunity to work the dirt and foster the growth of a vegetable, herb and/or flower garden in the raised bed planters; perhaps even mentoring less experienced gardeners-to-be along the way. The flat, meandering walking path throughout the property will be useful for not only general enjoyment of the outdoors, but also as an opportunity for continued light exercise or help with rehabilitation after a minor surgery or health issue. If not physically engaged in one of the several sporting activities available; putting on the putting green, badminton, croquet or beanbag toss, residents have the opportunity to cheer their comrades on by watching from the shaded benches. The amenities and location of Peakview Trails are designed for supporting residents in outdoor activities.
Four Corners worked diligently to find a site best suited to support independent, active Seniors. The site is within walking distance (2-5 blocks north or south) of the Red Route bus stops which will provide residents with access to local neighborhood amenities (groceries, medical and restaurants) and downtown Greeley. The site’s proximity to single-family and multi-family residential neighborhoods and other apartment communities for people with disabilities and higher-income seniors may allow for inter-generational interaction. Seniors today are healthier and more active than ever before. By living in the ‘silver lining’, the area slightly outside of the urban downtown area, these seniors will have the opportunity to experience all that life continues to offer them! Peakview Trails is the perfect choice. Every day they will be able to choose from a long list of options, all of which will be on the property of Peakview Trails. Without leaving Peakview Trails, they have the opportunity to garden, exercise, entertain a group, enjoy a challenging game or hand of cards, be entertained with friendly conversation by the fire, re-live childhood memories by engaging in a game of badminton, read a book, surf the internet or improve their putting. Yet, the option to run errands or enjoy other activities ‘off site’ is as close as a parking space or a short 2-block walk. This availability to transportation provides another key component to creating this paradise of ‘silver lining’ for the residents of Peakview Trails.
