The 11-story apartment building for low-income seniors located in Old Town Fort Collins will be getting a face-lift soon. This top-to-bottom renovation by general contractor, Brinkman Construction, will be the first to take place in nearly a half-century of existence.
The tall, white building at 300 Remington known as DMA Plaza will be stripped down to its studs as part of a $16 million renovation. Construction will begin in January and will be paid for by tax credits, the city, and the Colorado Division of Housing.
While their units are renovated, residents will be relocated to vacant apartments within the same building where they are expected to stay for about six months. Work will begin with the top three floors of the building and progress will move downward as floors are completed.
