This vacant land sits on top of the historic city center of Fort Collins. Just steps away from the newly improved Old Town Square, and main commercial corridors of Mountain Ave, and College Ave, this is a Great Opportunity Site that can take advantage of tourist and student populations.
This location use to be the main headquarters of the Elks Club of Fort Collins. In 2008 the Downtown Development Authority of Fort Collins bought this property from the Elks Club. The nearly 50,000-square-foot building, located at 140 Oak St., was purchased by the DDA in 2008 to make way for a new hotel project, but the developer, Corporex, was unable to secure financing for the project because of the economic conditions at the time.
A 2009 study showed that $1 million would be needed to bring the building into compliance with city codes, in addition to development costs.
In 2013 the Building was demolished and this site now sits vacant.
