Ramon Garcia (cq), a construction worker at the build site of the new Benedict Park apartments takes a break from work in downtown Denver. The Denver Housing Authority tore down the public housing on this site and partnered with a private developer to build a townhouse, a condo, and an apartment community that includes public housing and market rate homes. The new development will be called the Benedict Park Place apartments, an addition to the ones that are currently being rented out across the street from this new construction site. This is part of a plan with the intention of injecting economic and social diversity into public housing. The project has been a catalyst that accelerated the gentrification of the area and reduced crime. Stemming from this housing project, the Denver Housing Authority plans to tear down two of the biggest housing projects in Denver and replace them with mixed income projects where public housing residents live next to young professionals. the Denver Housing Authority already did this at Curtis Park and will possibly do this with the Sun Valley Projects in 10th and Federal in Denver.
