A Transit Accessible Senior Housing Development in Thornton, Colorado

Crossing Pointe North was developed in 2019 by Maiker Housing Partners, the housing authority for Adams County, Colorado, as the first phase of a multi-generational affordable housing development in Thornton. Maiker had strategically selected this suburban Denver location due to its proximity to a proposed commuter rail station, which opened the following year. Crossing Pointe North has 64 units serving seniors who earn between 30 and 60 percent of the area median income. The Enterprise Green Community also has a multipurpose room, clubhouse, and outdoor courtyard. Since the opening of the second phase with 142 non-age restricted apartments in 2023, Crossing Pointe North residents have access to additional shared amenities.
