Craig’s main thoroughfare, the historic Yampa Avenue, runs from US Highway 40 through the northern part of the city. Several core downtown structures offer excellent redevelopment opportunities supported by CURA efforts and incentives:
538 Yampa Avenue
Historic character, high visibility and mixed-use adaptability.
This two-story key catalyst site has been a downtown landmark since its construction in 1900. Previously used for commercial and retail on the ground floor, with six rental residential units on the upper floor, the property offers prime mixed-used opportunity at a time when downtown living is highly desired. An EPA Brownfields Assessment grant has funded preliminary design, future reuse and financial information to facilitate developers in achieving highest and best use.
520 & 524 Yampa Avenue
Strategic combination: Heritage and character with enticing possibilities.
This combination of two parcels of single-story, adjoining buildings offers a combined footprint of 6,135 square feet of commercial space, which provided an expansive home for the restaurant most recently on site. Some restaurant equipment remains; however downtown zoning allows for a wide range of commercial and retail possibilities for these historic structures, one built in 1898 and the other in 1927. An EPA Brownfields Assessment grant has funded preliminary design, future reuse and financial information to facilitate developers in achieving highest and best use.
