Located in a college town, home of Colorado State University, the re-imagined Foothills Mall now provides a new town square community gathering place, both inside and out. It features Colorado contemporary architecture that honors Fort Collins' vibrant, outdoor-centric and sustainability-minded community.

The goal of the Foothills redevelopment was to return the mall and surrounding area to its former status as a cultural and economic magnet for the surrounding community and broader northern Colorado region. One of largest planned retail developments in the country, the project is attracting new investment, retail spending and revitalizing the midtown corridor.

The site plan includes a row of new shops along College Avenue, new parking deck, movie theatre, and public lawn designed to host casual gatherings and festivals throughout the year. In addition to a concert venue, an outdoor ice rink replaces the lawn in winter. As an extension to the mall, the City of Fort Collins owns and operates the new 24,000 sq ft, $4.8 million Foothills Activity Center. The mall interior was renovated in stages while remaining open.
