Fannie Mae embodied a spirit of welcome and inclusion unparalleled in Colorado Springs, best exemplified by the “Everybody Welcome” sign that hung outside the Cotton Club — a symbol expressing her countercultural challenge to the prevailing ethos of the 1950’s and 60’s. Fannie Mae’s most enduring legacy, however, may be her legendary generosity and hospitality. As the owner of multiple successful businesses, she used her position to give generously to her community without expecting recognition or anything in return.
The Mae on Cascade was inspired by Fannie Mae Duncan from the ground up — elegant and refined, yet resolute and bold. The apartment community aspires to honor Fannie Mae’s iconoclastic legacy and evoke her high-spirited charisma and charm via an elevated living experience. When the Mae opens its doors in the summer of 2020, it will offer an incomparable, Fannie Mae-inspired joie de vivre for the Colorado Springs urbanite.
