Bank Lofts

The Bank Lofts is a conversion of the 1921 United States National Bank Building to an affordable rental loft community of 126 units and other ground floor retail tenants, including the conversion of the original banking hall into Nicoise Restaurant. The project was financed with a $100,000 grant from the Colorado State Historical Fund, retail sales tax increment financing from the Denver Urban Renewal Authority, historic preservation tax credits, low income housing credits, a 40 year HUD mortgage and owner equity. Jim Hartman was instrumental in the project being listed on the National Register of Historic Places and receiving the State Historical Fund Grant.
