The redevelopment of a full city block in the heart of the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood in Denver. Sloan’s Block 3 is a true mixed-use mixed income project. The project contains the restoration and adaptive reuse of the Kuhlman Building. Originally constructed as housing for the nursing students at the old St. Anthony’s Hospital, the building was redeveloped into 49 LIHTC affordable housing units. On the ground floor of the Kuhlman Building, the old gymnasium was converted into 5,800 square feet of restaurant space, with an additional newly constructed 2,200 square foot restaurant building to the north. Surrounding the perimeter of the site are 27 luxury rowhomes with a wide array of floorplans and interior amenities.
An assemblage of eight acres adjacent to the Sheridan Station light rail station in Lakewood, Colorado. West Line Village is a transit-oriented development, that consists of 178 units of for-sale rowhomes. This master planned micro-neighborhood provides homeownership to residents with modern design in a convenient location, 10 minutes from downtown Denver.
A continuation of West Line Village, Trailbreak Partners acquired an additional two acres of land, adjacent to the east. Currently under development, West Line Village Apartments will be a 280-unit class “A” apartment community that continues to provide a diverse array of housing options just west of downtown Denver, next to the Sheridan Station light rail station.
In partnership with some of the local management, an affiliate of Trailbreak Partners participated in the acquisition at bankruptcy auction of the Denver assets of a former national traffic control safety and services company. The investment thesis was that the Denver branch has a reason to exist, provides a necessary service to the marketplace, and is made up of a hard-working team of people who care about each other and about the company. The “new” company was rebranded as Colorado Barricade, to stay true to its historic roots dating back 40 years as a family owned and operated business. At the time of acquisition, the company was dark; no longer a going concern. Today the company is stronger than ever with close to 100 employees. Strategic decisions are made with the long game in mind. We are working together to position the company and its employees for long-term strength, success, and sustainability; to continue and carry on the legacy that began 40 years ago.
