The 11-story low-income senior living community, The Remington (formerly known as DMA Plaza Apartments), recently had a top-to-bottom renovation by Brinkman Construction. Located in in downtown Fort Collins at 300 Remington Street, The Remington was brought down to its studs as part of a $16 million dollar renovation project partially subsidized through tax credits, The City of Fort Collins, MEHG and the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority.
There was significant coordination from project teams on this nearly three-year project to perform the remodel activities on vacant floors while the remaining floors remained occupied. All precautions and communication were carefully in place to secure a successful outcome for everyone involved and the building’s residents.
The 70,000 SF building saw upgrades to both the interior and exterior such as new ventilation, heating, plumbing, lighting and more. Two of the building’s 127 units were removed to expand the laundry room and fitness center to create a new conference room for its tenants.
The Remington provides apartments for those earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area median income. The apartments offer studio and one-bedroom units with the convenience of being right in the heart of downtown Fort Collins.
Brinkman Construction was the project’s general contractor and VFLA for the interior and exterior design.
