Jax Mercantile

Developer: Jax Mercantile

URA Participation: $197,000

Total Project Cost: $1.3 million

Completion Date: End of 2010

Jax Mercantile is a locally-owned business in north Fort Collins with an outdoor line of products catering to the adventurous people of northern Colorado and southern Wyoming. Jax is redeveloping its site on North College and adding 25 percent more retail space to their 55-year-old store. Additional parking will be created as well as a public courtyard between its buildings. As with other URA projects, significant funding gaps and extraordinary infrastructure deficiencies define this project. The URA is providing TIF to offset the costs and provide needed public utilities in an area that has remained underdeveloped. Improvements on the site will greatly enhance the local area’s property tax base and be more attractive to potential businesses and property owners.
