Vintage City Church Purchases New Fort Collins Location
Vintage City Church has purchased 1501 Academy Court in Fort Collins, a two-story building with high visibility and monument signage along Prospect Road, for $4.125 million. The church is relocating from 1825 Sharp Point in Fort Collins, a space it has leased since 2014.
The church purchased four units totaling 31,650 square feet in two separate transactions. CBRE represented Vintage in the transaction. Unit 1, at 19,177 square feet, was purchased from 1501 Academy LLC, Units 2, 3 and 4, totaling 12,473 square feet, were purchased from Life Church. Both transactions closed Oct. 15.
“Vintage City Church has long been in search of a permanent home, and everything aligned in this case for them to relocate and expand their growing community at 1501 Academy Court. Many of this property’s inherent offerings are well-suited to use as a church, including the high ceilings, abundance of parking and visibility along Prospect Road. In addition, Vintage City Church is
undergoing a remodeling process that will result in a building that meets all of their community’s needs,” said Annah Moore, vice president, CBRE.
The buyer originally committed to purchasing Unit 1, which will serve as the church’s main gathering space and offices. Later, Units 2, 3 and 4 were added to the transaction, which will be primarily used as the church’s kids wing.
“We are incredibly excited for this fresh season in our Vintage family to serve Fort Collins in this prime location. We are so grateful,” said Pastor Greg Sanders of Vintage City Church.
The church will meet for its first gathering Nov. 15, in Units 2, 3 and 4, as Unit 1 is beginning the remodel process.
According to David Sitzman of 1501 Academy, LLC, “This was a complicated transaction, made even more so by fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. It took nearly a year to complete, but dealing with Annah, Matt and ethical, honest and motivated buyers … all that was needed was faith!”
