GRAND JUNCTION, CO (November 15, 2019) – The Grand Junction Economic Partnership is pleased to announce that RockyMounts, a bike rack manufacturer from Boulder, has officially relocated to Grand Junction, Colo. The company broke ground on its new headquarters in Riverfront at Las Colonias Park this afternoon.
“What was important to us was finding an area with solid business infrastructure, access to outdoor recreation, quality of life for our staff, low or no commute times, positive workforce and an engaged outdoor community,” said Bobby Noyes, Owner of RockyMounts, upon announcing the relocation last summer.
RockyMounts is the first company to break ground in Riverfront at Las Colonias Park, a 140-acre mixed-use development along the Colorado River in downtown Grand Junction. Once complete next year, the $30 million development will include a 15-acre business park, a 5,000-seat amphitheater, a river park with two standing waves, a boat ramp, multiple ponds and a zipline across the Colorado River.
Riverfront at Las Colonias Park is a unique collaboration between multiple economic development partners and the community in Grand Junction. The development is spearheaded by the City of Grand Junction, GJEP and Bonsai Design, a local business that designs and implements adventure courses across the country. Bonsai Design is expected to break ground in the business park in Spring 2020 and several other businesses are currently working with GJEP to follow suit.
