Salida, CO – River View at Cleora, Planned Development. The Colorado mountain town of Salida sits in the middle of the state, literally in the “Heart of the Rockies,“ about 2 hours west of Colorado Springs and 3 hours southwest of Denver. Salida is recognized as a top destination lifestyle community with some of the best white water rafting in the world and Monarch Mountain ski area just 20 minutes away. Salida visitors can take a leisurely stroll along tree-lined streets and into the downtown area where century-old redbrick buildings offer café fare to fine dining and art galleries display whimsical art pieces to upscale aesthetics. The town of about 5500 residents is included in the guidebook America’s 100 Best Small Art Towns1, and has been listed in US News and World Report as a Top Ten Bargain Retirement Spot2.
River View at Cleora is located on 19.1 acres between the Arkansas River and County Road 102 in Chaffee County, Colorado. The City of Salida has annexed the property into the city to be known as “River View at Cleora.” The site is adjacent to the historic Cleora platted townsite and the Bighorn Canyon gateway, and includes 1,650 feet of prime Arkansas River frontage.
The planned development for Riverview at Cleora is 200 tiny home units; a community building with catering kitchen, exercise facility and management office; a restaurant lot overlooking the river; and 96 storage units. There are plans for a walking trail to be constructed along the length of the river, two resident parks, and numerous pedestrian walk ways, resulting in approximately 2000 square feet of common green space per pod.
Market Conditions: River View at Cleora will address the huge need of quality housing of the community of Salida and attract sustainably-minded residents who share the active lifestyle decision to work and live in one of the most beautiful places and climate in Colorado. River View has gained support from the Chaffee County economic development group, local employers, a school district and realtors who all benefit from the positive economic impact it will have on all stakeholders.
