FORT COLLINS — Four more tenants have announced they will be taking space in The Exchange, a city-block redevelopment on the north end of Old Town Fort Collins.
Fort Collins Donut Co., Steamies Burger Bar, The Pizza Press and FoCo Da Vinci Body are the latest tenants to lease space at The Exchange, joining earlier lessees Old Town Media, CopperMuse Distillery and Churn Ice Cream.
While owning a building seems like something every successful business should do, that’s not always the case. For many companies, it makes more sense to continue leasing space, freeing up time and capital that can be better utilized in other ways.
Opening dates are still being finalized but will range from late 2017 to early summer 2018.
Fort Collins Donut Co., is a homegrown doughnut shop featuring seasonal flavors and locally sourced ingredients. The shop will also serve artisan coffee and local chai. Its miniature doughnuts are handcrafted, made to order and served hot. The menu will be seasonally driven.
Steamies Burger Bar uses steam as its primary, custom-cooking method. Menu items can be accompanied by housemade concoctions like Blueberry Ketchup and Bacon Mustard from their gourmet Sauce Bar. The interior will have an old-school board game wall, a full bar and heated patio featuring beer, wine and signature cocktails. This will be the second Steamies location. The burger bar’s original location opened on Main Street in Telluride in 2015.
The Pizza Press, based in Anaheim, Calif., pairs custom or signature pizzas with more than two dozen different craft beers on tap.
FoCo Da Vinci Body is a fitness center that offers high-intensity interval training, Pilates, yoga, strength training, power moves and cardio. Workout classes vary from 30 to 50 minutes using multiple levels of resistance. Its flagship studio is in Santa Fe, N.M., and has opened studios in Canada, Japan, Korea and the United Kingdom in the past three years. The studio in Fort Collins is its second in the United States.
Encircled by College Avenue, Riverside Avenue and Walnut Street, The Exchange consists of two existing buildings on the north and south side being refinished, while the central plaza will consist of offices, retail and restaurants housed out of upcycled shipping containers in addition to patios, picnic tables and grassy areas for convening.
The project is being developed by Brinkman and Richmark.
