When Kum & Go abandoned plans last week to build on the Goodwill parcel in Old Colorado City, it turned planning for the property into a redevelopment race.
At least one developer plans to make an offer on the property next week, a second anonymous developer is piecing together a proposal and Goodwill now says its top priority is to sell the parcels, which total about 79,300 square feet, as soon as possible.
Developer Joe Rexroad says his company, Rexroad APG, has big plans. After final analysis of the property this week, he’s nearly ready to make an offer.
“We’ve walked the property, and we’ve made some rough assumptions, but we think it’s ideal for mixed-use development,” Rexroad said.
His preliminary plans call for a restaurant with a rooftop patio at the site of the existing one-story Goodwill building at the southwest corner of 23rd Street and Colorado Avenue.
Rexroad’s drawings also show a building that would stretch from the middle of the block west to 24th Street, replacing the existing West Side Cleaners and Laundry as well as Pikes Peak National Bank’s drive-through lanes and banking kiosk.
