TOWN OF AVON SEEKING A BUSINESS TO LEASE OLD FIRE STATION FOR DORMITORY HOUSING
Letters of Interest will be accepted until April 13th
Avon, CO – The Town of Avon is seeking a business to lease the former Fire Station #7 for use as worker housing. The station, located at 351 Benchmark Road, has been utilized for the past fifteen (15) plus years by the Eagle River Fire Protection District as an active fire response station, with residential dormitory housing. Over the last several months, the building has been leased by Venture Sports for dormitory housing. The building is being studied for repurposing into another long-term use. During the study, design and funding period, the objective of the Avon Town Council is to have the building utilized for worker housing rather than remain vacant.
The space can accommodate up to twelve (12) individuals in twelve (12) individual bedrooms, and six and one-half (6 ½) bathrooms. Interested businesses are encouraged to visit www.avon.org/bids to learn more about how to submit a Letter of Interest. The building is expected to be available for lease no later than June 1, 2018. Letters of Interest are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on April 13, 2018.
