Both the unemployment rate and foreclosure rate are sitting at historic lows in Colorado. Despite that, more adults than ever live with family, friends and nonrelated roommates, according to a new report from Shift Research Lab.

“It is hard for me to believe this is not an economic issue,” said Phyllis Resnick, a co-author of the report and executive director of the Colorado Futures Center.

Back in 2006, before the recession hit, there were 415,000 “doubled-up” households in the state. By 2017, the number had risen to 560,000, according to the report, which used counts from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.

And that increase doesn’t just reflect a larger population. The number of households of all types rose 16 percent in Colorado between 2006 and 2017, while the growth rate of doubled-up households was 34 percent.

About one in five households was doubled-up in 2006 in Colorado. Now it is around one in four.

CBRE represented the sellers in the transaction.

The council followed that up by rezoning another parcel in the so-called “Fox Island” area of Globeville in February, allowing for buildings as..
