    There will never be enough affordable housing; it’s the nature of the beast. Fortunately Denver has built a lot of it over the last 15 years. Even more gratifying is that while they might not have granite countertops they have been built to much higher sustainability standards and fit into the neighborhoods. They haven’t just replaced old ghetto housing with new ghetto housing. In fact I read over the weekend about the final phase of Westerly Creek in Aurora. A lot to like. http://www.aurorasentinel.com/news/westerly-creek-development-adds-much-needed-affordable-housing-options-area-seniors/
