Huron Landing is a collaborative effort between the Town of Breckenridge and Summit County to continue to provide affordable workforce housing. The project was completed June 2017, and includes (15) two bedroom-one bathroom units and (11) two bedroom-two bathroom units. The site is conveniently located close to downtown Breckenridge, with easy access to public transit, trails, the Breckenridge Recreation Center and the Summit County Recpath System. Apartments are pet friendly and smoke free, and each comes with one parking space, with additional parking available for rent. Each apartment includes a full-size washer and dryer and an exterior storage locker. Initial rental rates were set to be affordable to workers earning 60-90% AMI, depending on the number of persons per household.
Huron Landing is a 50-50 partnership between the Town of Breckenridge and Summit County. Each organization contributed funding, staff time and in-kind resources to the project. Summit County has owned the 1.7 acre property on CR 450 since the 1960’s and previously used it as a Road and Bridge shop, ambulance station, evidence storage for the Sheriff’s Office and a community drop-off center for recycling. The community identified it as a potential workforce housing site during the 2010 update of the Upper Blue Master Plan. GE Johnson served as the general contractor for the project. The design team included local firms Matthew Stais Architects, Norris Design and Civil Insights, which provided architecture, landscape design and engineering services. Corum Real Estate Group provides day-to-day property management services at Huron Landing.
