Uncommon was designed to relate to the historic urban neighborhood through its massing and proportion, as well as the careful selection of materials. The mixed-use building creates a dynamic streetscape blending a strong retail presence to the already lively area of town. 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 illuminated circuit of alleys found in the area. Residents enjoy a private gathering space in this corridor, just steps away from bustling College Avenue.

The upper floors of Uncommon are dedicated to 120 student residential units for the college town of Fort Collins. Multiple windows are incorporated in each floorplan for ventilation and to maximize natural light , and several floorplans provide private terraces ideal for Colorado’s many days of sunshine. Designed to appeal to the Colorado outdoor enthusiast, featured amenities include a fitness room, two outdoor courtyards, a lounge and a business center. The complex also offers outdoor grills and a bike room for residents, including repair and cleaning stations as well as storage areas for ski or snowboarding equipment.
