The National Register Listed Fruitdale School, designed by Temple Buell and constructed in 1927 with additions in 1930 and 1954, closed as a school in 2007. The public-private partnership of the City of Wheat Ridge and Hartman Ely Investments, LLC undertook a challenging project of converting the school into 16 apartment units, 5 of those as affordable units.
