Watch out –  the urbanization of downtown Steamboat Springs is getting renewed traction. A weekend article in the Steamboat Pilot and Today focuses on the renewed attention to revitalizing a prime location –Yampa Street which lies between Steamboat Springs’ main street (Lincoln Avenue) and the Yampa River, home to world-class fly fishing, as well as summer tubing and kayaking. Already dotted with restaurants and a few retail stores, it could be so much more given its prime location between downtown Steamboat Springs and Howelsen Hill.

Whether it becomes a pedestrian mall, cycling hub, entertainment district or some combination of mixed uses, this prime downtown street and the entire Steamboat Springs community will definitely benefit from a strategic plan to better utilize this beautiful stretch of real estate. From a real estate perspective, the Olympian, Howelsen Place, Alpen Glow and The Victoria all stand to benefit with mixed use space still available in each…and homeowners in both the Old Town and Brooklyn areas will enjoy both tangible and intangible benefits as well. This endeavor presents an incredible opportunity to further enhance Steamboat Springs’ downtown appeal, and is one of the most exciting projects on the horizon.
