First round of tenants sign up for The Exchange

FORT COLLINS — Old Town Media, Churn Ice Cream, CopperMuse Distillery and a large anchor office tenant will be setting up shop in The Exchange, the redevelopment of the city block in Old Town Fort Collins.

Fort Collins-based developer Brinkman Colorado announced the first round of tenants for the estimated $6 million mixed-use development on Thursday.

The centerpiece of the project, encircled by College Avenue, Riverside Avenue and Walnut Street, is converting the parking at the center of the site into a public plaza. Brinkman officials envision converted shipping containers housing vendor kiosks that serve things such as beer, cocktails and ice cream. The shipping containers will be stacked to surround the plaza that will include patios, picnic tables and grassy areas.

The Exchange has been a collaborative project between Brinkman, the Downtown Development Authority, Brinkman Construction, alm2s, russell+mills studios, Northern Engineering and Waypoint Real Estate. First Bank provided the financing.
