Construction could start on a new mega King Soopers in Midtown Fort Collins this summer after the city’s planning and zoning board unanimously approved the grocer’s plans late Thursday night.
If everything goes as planned, the grocer’s “flagship” store at the old Kmart, 2535 S. College Ave., could open a year later, in summer 2022, said King Soopers’ senior real estate manager Don Forrest.
The 11-acre site sits at the corner of South College Avenue and Drake Road adjacent to the city’s MAX bus line on the west. The project includes about 100 parking spots for MAX riders on the south and west sides of the building.
