There is a new development called “La Puerta de Colorado” coming to Trinidad Colorado just down the street from our real estate office on Commercial Street where Commercial Street borders I-25. Jay Cimino, a Trinidad native who is the CEO and President of Phil Long Ford Dealerships has been investing time and money into projects in Trinidad like the Mount Carmel Health, Wellness and Community Center and Phil Long Toyota at Exit 11 near Walmart.
Now Jay Cimino has a huge 30 Million Dollar development on 60 acres in the works that he feels will help spur revitalization of downtown Trinidad Colorado. It will include a classic car museum featuring the last car owned by Babe Ruth, a brewery pub and restaurant, a baseball training center, a 50 room hotel and gift shop, a movie theater and boutique style shopping center that he believes will get travelers off of I-25 and bring tourists to the Trinidad area.
He has been working on this project for 6-7 years and the goal is to help spark interest, activity and tourists to stop and enjoy what Trinidad has to offer. This is welcomed news especially after a number of local projects were canceled because of the US economy downturn. But this isn’t stopping Jay Cimino as he is moving towards his goal of re-energizing his hometown by giving back the way he knows best.
We have been in the Trinidad area since 1995 and although we have seen many improvements in our small town of about 10-12,000 residents it has pretty much stayed a small quaint town. Let’s face it Trinidad is not on the tourist map for Colorado and has mainly been a place to stop for fuel, food and a rest stop. But those who venture off the main I-25 corridor have been treated to a spectacular view of the vintage old west that is still intact. In fact Trinidad Colorado has one of the largest collections of Victorian style homes west of the Mississippi.
Plus Las Animas County just west of Trinidad has some of the most affordable mountain property that you will find in Colorado. Mountain property has been our business since 1995 and Adobe Gold Properties has helped hundreds of couples and families find their dream properties in this area. And many of our customers have built their homes here and have started businesses here in Trinidad also helping to revitalize our local economy. We feel that what they and Jay Cimino is doing will just help bolster our local economy and make Trinidad Colorado a place that you will enjoy visiting.
Here is a map of the location.
