Dos Rios Grand Junction CO New Construction
As one of the oldest parts of the city of Grand Junction, the Riverside area is beginning to see new signs of revitalization—and we’re proud to be a part of that process. If you’ve travelled near the Dos Rios area, you might have seen construction already beginning on renovating the area. Maybe as you’ve passed by, you’ve wondered what exactly was coming to this area of Grand Junction. If you’ve searched for “Dos Rios Grand Junction CO New Construction” on Google recently, you know there isn’t a lot of up-to-date information about the project. We’re very excited to be a part of a team that’s bringing new construction and a new outlook for the long-neglected Dos Rios area of Grand Junction. Creating a space for people to work and live in the downtown area is one of our top priorities as the general contractors for the project.
We’ve helped bring about change you can see at the nearby Las Colonias Business Park—you can read more about everything we’ve done here. We’re proud to be the general contractors working on the development there and in the Dos Rios area. Already, we’ve begun to rejuvenate an old area of town, bringing modernity, freshness, and most importantly, hope for the future. When the developments at Dos Rios are done and the new construction there is finished, this downtown area will be the center of a live-work space that provides a connection between younger people and the companies for which they work. All over the United States, live-work communities have become increasingly popular, especially with younger people, because it gives more options to people who aren’t quite ready to tie themselves down to a home.
New Companies Coming to Dos Rios
Many of the companies that will be setting up shop in the Dos Rios area will be tech and outdoor-related companies. One of the tenants that will be coming there, for example, is Sunshine Polishing, a company that paints both gondolas and ski-lifts. In the modern world, tech companies have become enormously important, and we think that providing a space for more of these kinds of companies in the Dos Rios area will help the community in many ways. It will encourage younger people to move closer to the area to live near where they work, it will help continue to modernize a part of Grand Junction that has been neglected for too long, and it will open up more opportunities for residents of the Riverside area. Tech companies are the way of the future, so we’re helping provide space to bring the future to downtown Grand Junction.
One of the most important aspects of the new development is the way it encourages people to live where they work. On top of building spaces for tech and outdoor companies, the new construction in the Dos Rios area will bring light residential space as well as buildings that combine the two. Some of the new buildings coming to the area will be designed so that the first floor will have retail space and the upper floors will be residential. Imagine living so close to work that you can walk downstairs or bike across the street to start your day. Western Constructors is proud to be part of the team that’s making this opportunity a reality. We’re making the downtown area of Grand Junction both a place where you can live and a place where you can work—a place where you can have your cake and eat it, too.
We’ve been hard at work with the city of Grand Junction to bring fresh change to a sometimes-forgotten part of town, and we’re very happy with what we’ve already begun. We want the Dos Rios area to be somewhere where people are proud to work and proud to live, a place where you can raise your children and make a living. Where there used to be more than 3,000 junked cars, we envision a mixed-use development that stimulates downtown Grand Junction and brings new life to one of the oldest parts of the city. We’re always looking for ways that we can help improve our city and make people’s lives a little better. Western Constructors believes that this will be the future of downtown, and as the general contractors for the project, we couldn’t be happier with the vision we have for the Dos Rios area.
The Future of Grand Junction’s Downtown
Of course, part of being one of the oldest areas of Grand Junction is having character, and that’s definitely not something we want to erase. The new developments will bring in new people to the Riverside area while maintaining the rich character of its current neighborhoods. If you’re interested in learning more about this, you can read a little bit about it in this wonderful article that also talks about the other changes coming to downtown Grand Junction. The new construction at the Dos Rios development is about bringing modernity to the area while also respecting its heritage, and the article linked above talks about some ways that it will give back to the current community. In the future, there may be giveback programs for developers and businesses aimed at assisting the Riverside community in everything from the Riverside Education Center to the One Riverfront Foundation.
Downtown Grand Junction’s future, something we’ve been talking about a lot lately, is looking bright—between the Las Colonias Business Park and the Dos Rios development, we’re helping to revitalize a crucial area of town. We can’t wait to see the new companies that set up in the Riverside area and all the people that will get a chance to join the community through new residential development and live-work spaces. Grand Junction is growing, and we’re so excited to see all of the benefits that an enlarged downtown will bring to the city. So if you see construction in the Dos Rios area on your way to work or on your way home, take pride in the fact that you’re looking at the future of Grand Junction’s downtown.
