As I recall, CSURF had almost all the ground west of the RR tracks


to Shields to the west and Drake to the south that was basically south of spring creek.

I'm painting the area with a real broad brush.

That was sold off to a developer with the idea that it would be an "incubator" for CSU with
business and research.

Instead it was just turned in Joe Average stuff, complete with a major grocery store, movie theatre, mortuary, senior care housing....blah...blah...blah.

I don't think, nor do I recall, Jack Graham having anything to do with it at that time.

That was back in the very late 80's and early to mid nineties.

For years that was a corn field.....like I said, CSU does real trippy stuff with real estate.

I do give them props though, for buying up the old Fort Collins High School site and building a connecting tunnel to it. That was a pretty wise move.

I also give them props for buying up the stuff near Lake Street (both sides) on and around College.

That is a major improvement to the entire campus on that side of the tracks.
