EXTREME MAKEOVER: The Clock Tower Condominiums
Originally built in 1968 as teacher housing, the Lofthouse Motel has been vacant for over ten years, making it a target for squatters, vandals, and bored teenagers. Before work began on the building, a professional hazards removal team came to tear out all the asbestos – now it’s clean and clear! You don’t need a space suit to go inside.
The Clock Tower Condominiums has been completely transformed! The new condominiums boast nine units. Through partnership with the Woodland Park Community Church, two of the units have been designated as transitional housing – the first transitional housing units in Teller County!
Each unit was completely updated and brought up to code, with brand new Whirlpool appliances. The units are right across the street from the Woodland Park Public Library, Memorial Park, the Ute Pass Cultural Center, Midland Pavilion, and just down the street from the Woodland Park High School. And, don’t miss out on spectacular views of Pikes Peak from the balconies.

Home Builders’ Blitz
Habitat for Humanity of Teller County was one of eight nationally selected affiliates for the 2016 Home Builders’ Blitz. Home Builders’ Blitz is a program within Habitat International which recruits professional builders and contractors, bringing them to the build site for a coordinated build. The Home Builders’ Blitz is a partnership to build, renovate and repair homes across the United States.
To kick things off, the Home Depot Foundation provided 200 volunteers, who built all of the interior walls, started on landscaping, and demolition. Since then, we’ve had the enthusiastic participation of hundreds of community volunteers and local builders. Even more community volunteers and local builders are scheduled to work from now through the end of January to get the entire project finished! Nine units in nine months!
