Dozens of people huddled atop a shortgrass prairie hillside south of the Colorado Springs Airport on a blustery Thursday to celebrate a new housing and business development aimed at veteran entrepreneurs. The project is expected to bring at least 600 temporary jobs to the region.

Dirt work on 116 acres is yet to begin, but the 240 apartments and 15 business offices are expected to sit on 15 acres to be completed sometime next year. The area, which will be called Veterans Victory Housing and Small Business Center, is the brainchild of Kim Kuhle, founder and CEO of Veterans Victory.
