Plans drawn up for $9M riverfront project
The Fort Collins-based software company, which has outgrown its headquarters at 324 Jefferson St., has drawn up plans to build a $9-million, four-story, terraced building on riverfront property.
As envisioned, the building would serve as a new home for Encompass and include 12 apartment units on the top two floors, a restaurant and an underground parking structure, all on the banks of the Cache la Poudre at 418 Linden St.
Encompass sees its project as a model for future similar developments in the Poudre River Redevelopment District, as the catalyst sought by the city for years.
The project is called Block One, a nod to the historical roots of the area. The parcel where it would be built is designated as "Block One" in the original plat of the City of Fort Collins.
The approximately one-acre site was formerly home to a concrete batch plant that has since been razed by the owner. Now, the father-and-son team that steers Encompass, Kent and Jonathan O'Neil, wants to help revitalize the area.
