Brinkman unveils plans for revamp of N. College Ave. block in Fort Collins

Developers on Wednesday will go before city officials for preliminary design review of The Exchange, a mixed-use redevelopment of the east side of the 200 block of North College Avenue in Fort Collins.

Led by Fort Collins-based Brinkman Partners, the project could be characterized as more of a major renovation. Plans filed with the city recently indicate that the existing one-story buildings, running from Walnut Street to Jefferson Street, will be reused in the new iteration of the site.

Josh Guernsey of Brinkman Partners, who estimates that the cost of the project will exceed $6 million, said on Monday that the plan is for a full gut and remodel on about 80 percent of the space in the buildings now. The buildings will also get completely new facades. And developers are planning to build a roughly 2,500-square-foot addition to the building at the south end of the site to bring total leasable square footage to 33,266 once complete.
