The Grand Junction River District at Las Colonias Park targets the emergent trend of a
workforce that seeks and prioritizes a healthy balance between work, life, and play.
The desire to live in a community that is conveniently located close to work and recreation
with little or no traffic congestion is increasing. Businesses staying in the front of the
trend, who seek to locate in zones highlighting immediate access to integrated work/play
environments will thrive while others who do not feel compelled to jump to the forefront
will lose their appeal to this workforce.
The Riverfront development will bring these aspects together and simultaneously provide
a close knit and collaborative environment for its businesses. The development is
specifically designed to include green-built structures, collaborative spaces, instruction
and learning, R&D, light manufacturing, retailers, restaurants, and adventure zones. All
spaces will be built to LEED certified standards to the extent possible
Grand Junction’s outstanding outdoor amenities are complimented with a diversified and
skilled workforce, a growing education system, and leading regional healthcare facilities.
Grand Junction is also a safe and inviting place to live and grow a business without
the traffic, taxes and congestion of Colorado’s front range cities. Recreation businesses
such as Bonsai Design, Leitner-Poma, DT Swiss USA, Mountain Racing Products (MRP),
and Loki Outdoor Clothing are headquartered in Grand Junction.
