Mosaic – New Construction -Real Estate Fort Collins, Colorado 2019
Mosaic is a development that will be moving toward its completion throughout 2019.
With two builders, five homes types, more than ten architectural styles, more than 20 floor plans, and a Fort Collins address to boot, Mosaic is going to be talked about in Fort Collins real estate for the next few years…and beyond.
According to their website, Mosaic will help you “Express your uniqueness.” They say:
The word “mosaic” is the technique of combining unique, even juxtaposed, elements into a cohesive compilation. Like its name, Mosaic is a community that provides for individual uniqueness in the context of a community. It is Where Life Comes Together through a collection of distinct, but unifying, architecture, amenities and conveniences.
MOSAIC Fort Collins – Neighborhood Map
About MOSAIC Fort Collins
Mosaic is on the east side of Fort Collins. The area south of it, along Highway 14, aka Mulberry St, is unincorporated Larimer County. That gives this section of Fort Collins a bit of a different feel. Heading west on nearby Lincoln Ave from Timberline, you’ll find the location of the old airport, along with breweries and distilleries. It’s also a favorite spot for makers, entrepreneurs, and businesses of all kinds—from the very unique, like hemp companies and fixed gear bike manufacturers; to long time business and service staples; like printers, painters, finishers, mechanics, auto and motorcycle shops.
To the east, the plains stretch away into the horizon. Along the NW Frontage Road, which parallels and gives easy access to Interstate 25, Fort Collins and Northern Colorado’s agricultural heritage shows through; with businesses like Poudre Valley Co-Op, which contains the vintage looking Ace Hardware; Tractor Supply Company, and the sprawling yards for Centennial Livestock Auction.
Mosaic is in an interesting location because it has the river and wetlands to its south, a quick jump into Fort Collins Old Town to the west, and the transition to ranch, farm and range to the east and north.
This new neighborhood, the ones that surround it, and the sections of businesses along Lincoln and just beyond, are great examples of the many faces and personalities of Fort Collins.
There are a few nearby heritage neighborhoods like Buckingham, and some good ol’ classic business sections, like the one off or International Blvd. This area is very unique. It is its own thing.

MOSAIC Fort Collins – Recreation and Lifestyle
Close to the Poudre River
The Wild and Scenic Poudre River
According to the Vicinity Map and information on MosaicFortCollins.com, the Poudre River and its trail system are only three minutes away. That’s three minutes to some great trout fishing in the river, or all kinds of fishing at Riverbend Ponds, Kingfisher Point, and a few other notable wetland areas. Also, it means you are about 15 minutes from Old Town and our legendary breweries (New Belgium, Odell, et al) if you are biking.
Plus, on Poudre Trail, you can go all the way to the town of Laporte. From Poudre Trail, you can make your way to Spring Creek Trail, which also leads to Mason Trail. These are the busiest non-motorized arteries in town. They take you all over the city. In other words, pop down to Poudre Trail and you’re in a runners’, cyclists’, alternative commuters’ and outdoor enthusiasts’ paradise.
Fishing, Boating, Tubing, Floating, Biking, Walking, Skating…just about everything!
There is so much to do in the Poudre River basin and the wetlands that are nearby. And as a person who has done just about all of it, I have fond memories that forever live in my heart, and a quiet assurance of having such natural gems in my future life.
One of the most exciting things I used to do is that I would put a boat in below College Ave and float down to the bridge at Timberline. It was either a kayak, or canoe. There is a bit of portage to be done, and always understand that if you attempt anything like this, you do it at your own risk.
Oh and by the way, I did this when there was a mess of a diversion in the river at the area just below where it crosses College Ave.
Now, this is the site of a new whitewater park that could be completed this year (2019)! Click here to see live progress on the creation of this new feature of Fort Collins!
The Poudre Play Park will be happening in the spot where I shot this video in 2014, back when we citizens still had to vote to approve the whitewater park. How far we’ve come!

I’ve been a part of this community for a long time and this change to the Poudre River at College Ave is going to be one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in Fort Collins.
The Poudre is one of my favorite things about Fort Collins. It is superlative!
There really is a lot to say about Mosaic. One of the best ways to learn about it would be for us to have a conversation. Please feel free to contact me to learn more. 🙂
