Berthoud Village owners prepare center’s addition

BERTHOUD – Full occupancy at Berthoud Village is prompting the developer now to consider the project’s second phase.”We’re looking for office and retail tenants,´ said David Sitzman, president of Sitzman-Mitchell & Co. of Fort Collins.
Berthoud Village is anchored by Toddy’s Supermarket and also houses Berthoud National Bank, Pizza Hut and several other retailers. It stretches along U.S. Highway 287 on Berthoud’s west side.
Sitzman said several different configurations are under consideration for the next phase.
“We’re looking at possible locations for 3,000 square feet to 8,000 square feet,” he said.
Right now, it’s likely that the next phase will be on the west side of the center, Sitzman said.
“I anticipate doing 8,000 square feet at once on the west side of Toddy’s,” he said. “We also have a free-standing pad of 3,000 square feet.”
Part of the addition could be an expansion of the grocery store.
Berthoud Village hasn’t even been open for a year. Toddy’s had its grand opening in March 1996, and the complex quickly was 100 percent leased.
“I think the town has been pleased, ´ said Mike Braskich, vice president of Sitzman-Mitchell.
Other retailers joining the anchors in the 33,000-square-foot first phase were Colorado Grill, Video Unlimited and a Country Cleaners outlet.
Additionally, a local chiropractor opened an office. And Coffee & Cream, an espresso and ice-cream shop, was launched by a local business woman.
Braskich said there is no immediate time table for the second phase. As soon as some tenants are lined up, the process can begin. He did not have an estimate for the project cost.
“We’re concerned about quality, not cost,” Braskich said. “You can’t really tell with something like that.”
While the addition attached to the existing complex likely will be primarily for retail tenants, Braskich said, the free-standing pad may accommodate office users.
“It really depends on who expresses an interest,” he said. “If a State Farm came in and wanted office space, we could accommodate them.”
The shopping center is owned by Berthoud Village LLC and managed by Sitzman-Mitchell.
