The 310 South College site, now named Uncommon, is a redevelopment mixed-use building with retail and commercial space on the ground ﬂoor and with multi-family residential and student housing units on top. Located on the southeast corner of College Avenue and Olive Street in Fort Collins, the building stretches across ten traditional downtown lots (.8 acres) and is ideal for its proximity to Old Town, the Civic Center, CSU, and existing Transit Lines.
The ground-level of the building will create a more dynamic streetscape blending a strong retail presence to the already lively strip. Aligned with Fort Collins’ notoriously active alley ways, Uncommon is designed with a “Paseo” on the south end of the site to provide a connection to the Montezuma Fuller Alley. Residents will enjoy a private gathering space in this corridor, just steps away from bustling College Avenue and with access to the illuminated circuit of alleys in Fort Collins.
The upper floors of Uncommon are dedicated to 120 high-end designed, yet reasonably priced, residential renting units for young professionals and the student demographic of Fort Collins. Floorplans range from studio apartments and one to three bedroom spaces – both furnished and unfurnished options available. Multiple windows are incorporated in each floorplan for ventilation and to maximize natural light. The interiors, designed by Dallas-based HPA Design, will reflect boutique living with modern finishes, embodying luxury and charm for a comfortable yet chic living space. Penthouse units on the 6th floor include exclusive elevator access, bedrooms furnished with flat screen TV’s, and Bluetooth shower heads. Several limited floorplans provide private terraces ideal for Colorado’s many days of sunshine.
Additional outdoor areas are communal, with two courtyards on the second level offering lush landscaping, cozy seating, and grilling areas. Two public rooftop decks overlook Olive Street, creating expansive views and more space to socialize. Other amenities include a full fitness room complete with a rock climbing wall and ski simulator, bike storage and repair station, TV and lounge area, business center, and ski and snowboard storage spaces.
Uncommon’s ideal location and active ground-level will elevate the College Ave. experience for the community while its residents will embrace a full list of amenities. The mix of apartment units to retail and commercial space will fulfill the need for housing in a way that supports both downtown Fort Collins and CSU. Here, residents will find the uncommon – the rare mix of lifestyle luxuries at an affordable price and all within the heart of the town.
Uncommon is scheduled for completion in August 2017. Find renting availability, layouts, and pricing information on their website here.
