"At a meeting Tuesday, the Denver Housing Authority unveiled the master plan that will guide redevelopment of the 15 acres near the light-rail stop at West 10th Avenue and Osage Street. The plan calls for demolishing the 270-unit South Lincoln Homes that serves low-income residents and replacing it with up to 900 mixed-income units."
