Columbine plans $9M facility in Windsor
The building will go up on slightly more than three acres near the intersection of Highway 392 and 15th Street in Windsor. Columbine founder Bob Wilson purchased the land for $775,000 in 2000.
Wilson said he wanted to begin the project in 2008, but felt that the political climate following that year’s election was not going to be good for business. Today, Wilson believes that President Barack Obama will win re-election, but he doesn’t want to keep waiting to expand his business.
“This project has always had merit,” Wilson said. “And I can’t wait four more years. We just have to do the best we can given the circumstances.”
The building, to be called Main Street Health and Rehabilitation, will house expansions of Columbine’s skilled nursing and assisted-living units, with an 8,000-square-foot common area to be shared by the two divisions. There will be 30 private skilled nursing rooms and a 60-unit assisted-living space.
In addition, Columbine will lease approximately 2,000 square feet from the nearby Poudre Valley Health
