Construction began Monday on a new Denver apartment building that will house 60 people who are chronically homeless, a joint project of the city and community mental health center.

The three-story Sanderson Apartments, at Federal Boulevard and West Iowa Avenue, is expected to open in summer 2017. It will become the Mental Health Center of Denver's largest "supportive living" center, meaning residents will have onsite mental health care.

Mayor Michael Hancock and other city leaders attended the groundbreaking, part of the city's $7 million effort to provide housing for 250 people who are chronically homeless. The project is funded in part through $600,000 in financing through the Denver Office of Economic Development.

"We know when people are in their own homes and feel safe, they are better able access other social services to improve their well-being," said Dr. Carl Clark, president of the mental health center.

The first participants in the city's program to house 250 people are moving into about 20 units at Colorado Coalition for the Homeless' Renaissance at North Colorado Station. The city also is financing upcoming construction of another homeless coalition building.

The city will repay investors based on how many participants stay in the housing program and out of jail during the next five years, saving the city money on law enforcement and health services.
