Imagine this: The Uncompahgre River flows beneath the balcony of your new home. After breakfast, you walk five minutes to the office. Your lunch break includes fly fishing on the Uncompahgre’s Gold Medal waters. Post work, you drive fifteen minutes—with zero traffic—to uncrowded mountain bike trails.

Introducing Colorado Outdoors, an outdoor-industry riverside neighborhood that is under construction in Montrose, Colorado, located 394 miles from Salt Lake City, Utah 296 miles from Denver, Colorado and 321 miles from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The 670,000-square-foot revitalization project includes a manufacturing center, retail shops, commercial offices, townhomes, apartments, a hotel for business travelers, a lake, and a riverfront trail along the Uncompahgre. Inaugural residents will open their offices—and throw housewarming parties—in December 2018.
