The long-awaited business park and public recreational development in Grand Junction’s Las Colonias Park broke ground on March 30.
The City of Grand Junction hosted a celebration east of the new amphitheater from 4-6p.m. The development is the result of a public-private partnership and investment of $30 million. Grand Junction-based Bonsai Design will be the anchor tenant and expects to move in next spring. Bonsai Design, catalyst behind this project, will also support GJEP in our efforts to recruit tenants for the business park.
As the City states on its website: “the ambitious plan for the Park will restore and enhance the banks of the Colorado River, celebrate the history of the area, provide access for trail use and passive recreation and create a unique outdoor events venue with a regional draw. In addition to the economic benefits of the recreational park as a regional draw, the Business Park will provide a desirable setting for the attraction and retention of Outdoor Recreation Industries that will strengthen the Valley’s economic growth and diversification.” View the master plan for Riverfront at Las Colonias Park here.
