Celebrating Community Development Along Mulberry Avenue in Fort Collins

Positive change is afoot along Fort Collins’ Mulberry Avenue, a formerly industrial area that’s rapidly urbanizing with desirable new amenities.

The Mulberry Street Corridor is bordered to the east by I-25 and to the west by Lemay Avenue. This eastern gateway to Fort Collins has suffered neglect in recent years, but there is a passionate movement for transforming this area into a commercial and industrial hub with small business opportunities, multimodal transportation options, improved infrastructure, and unique and affordable residential options like what’s coming to Bloom.

Above all, improving the area around Mulberry Avenue will make life in Fort Collins and the surrounding areas more convenient, fun, and connected.

Community development like the rejuvenation of Mulberry Avenue can turn urban settings into cozier and more livable spaces that encourage socializing and connections among neighbors. These connections, in turn, improve quality of life for all residents and can even improve the economy by generating more affordable housing options and more local spending.

The Perfect Place

Fort Collins itself is a highly engaging place; an Old Town that has college vibes. Colorado State University brings vibrancy, youth, and excitement to the already-impressive cultural scene in Fort Collins, which boasts a dining scene that rivals Boulder and Denver, an array of craft breweries, and every kind of shopping experience you could want, from the mall to the market. Catch a top-notch performance or bucket-list concert at The Lincoln Center, Old Town Square, or The University Center for the Arts. Immerse yourself in history at The 1879 Avery House, home of the Avery family who settled in Fort Collins in the early 19th century. Browse traditional and contemporary art at Fort Collins many art galleries during the First Friday Art Walks, or join the monthly Fort Collins Foodie Walk to explore the town’s colorful culinary scene.

Mulberry Avenue is the gateway into Fort Collins, a straight shot into the downtown area from I-25. This corridor, while convenient and direct, currently doesn’t have a well-connected network of sidewalk and bike lines to allow for safe walking, jogging or biking from Bloom. With more development will come the rewards of a well-planned day: heading out from home in Bloom and taking the path down Mulberry with stops and shops before getting to the main destination of downtown Fort Collins.

A Boost to the Economy

Economic benefits are a plus, and so is the protection of the area and its surrounding residents. Bloom’s master-plan integrates walkable neighborhoods with trails and gathering places made of enhanced nature areas. Intentional design and implementation of infrastructure to reduce flood risks with proper conveyance of stormwater. And making the Mulberry Ave gateway into Fort Collins more appealing, vibrant, and safe.

“Bloom will be a catalyst to redevelopment of this corridor. Most of our City was built out through the 80s, 90s and early 2000s without much opportunity for re-development,” says Landon Hoover, President and CEO of Hartford Homes. “This area will become the newest, most vibrant part of our City over the next 10 years with amenities the fit today’s lifestyles.”

Mulberry Avenue delivers residents from Bloom directly into the buzzing downtown of Fort Collins with zero hassle, but sometimes the journey is more relevant than the destination. With all the fun and entertainment coming to this corridor, Bloom residents, and everyone else in the Fort Collins area, will experience a comfortable and coveted lifestyle full of familiarity and just the right amount of surprise.

Now’s the time to get in on the ground floor of the next best thing coming to Fort Collins. Bloom’s new homes will have easy access to all of the remarkable amenities of their own community, as well as those along Mulberry Avenue and within Fort Collins.
