Elevations Credit Union celebrates groundbreaking for Fort Collins Old Town branch with The Neenan Company

The mixed-use four-story redevelopment will offer retail space and office space

BOULDER, CO (July 10, 2019) — Elevations Credit Union is officially underway with its redevelopment of the much-anticipated Old Town Fort Collins site located at 221 E. Mountain Ave. Elevations Credit Union has contracted with Fort Collins-based design-build firm The Neenan Company, and today the two teams celebrate the groundbreaking for Elevations Credit Union’s branch at the site, with an approximate completion date planned for Q1 2021.

This endeavor continues a longstanding relationship between Elevations Credit Union and The Neenan Company. Neenan has served as the design-build partner for several of Elevations Credit Union’s projects across the Front Range, including the Fort Collins Midtown branch, which celebrated its grand opening in 2018. The Midtown branch was a redevelopment project in an area experiencing resurgence and represented Elevations Credit Union’s first freestanding branch in Fort Collins. Much like the Midtown outlet, the Old Town location will be designed to reflect the surroundings and lifestyles of the northern Colorado community, including interior finishes made of sustainable materials and local Fort Collins artwork.

“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with The Neenan Company on such an important project,” said Michael Calcote, Elevations Chief Financial Officer. “We believe that together we will be able to create a culture and design that represents the Elevations Credit Union brand, while maintaining and celebrating the beauty of Old Town Fort Collins.”

The development will provide space for Elevations Credit Union to serve more members in the Fort Collins community. The credit union will occupy approximately 3,000 square feet on the first floor with a full-service branch offering consumer and business banking, mortgage loans, business loans and wealth management. In addition, Elevations will host community events and financial seminars in its second-floor space.

“We are proud to deepen our relationship with Elevations Credit Union on this impressive project,” said Randy Myers, director of real estate with The Neenan Company. “With extensive experience working in northern Colorado, we’re thrilled to offer our unique and integrated support to Elevations and help bring this highly anticipated development to life in a thriving location.”
