What’s old is new again in the heart of Old Town Fort Collins, where renovated 19th century storefronts and historical buildings house fresh and innovative businesses and concepts. Northern Colorado residents enjoy exploring Old Town on occasion, but those living in the center of town appreciate it all the more.
Old Town residents are within walking distance of the city’s most renowned attractions, including restaurants, cafes, shops and boutiques, music venues, and much more. Art comes alive in the tucked-away murals in alleyways and live music events in the square. And green spaces and outdoor patios adorn the cityscape for outdoor recreation and al fresco dining alike.
While it maintains its original charm from decades past, Old Town Fort Collins has received exciting modern additions over the years, including three brand new luxury condo projects. These stunning residences enjoy the best of both at-home amenities and convenient access to the city’s finest and latest. Let’s take a look inside these luxurious condos in Old Town and the rich lifestyle their residents enjoy.
